The Thanksgiving Visit



Since things have been so serious around here for so long...I thought I'd share a few photos from Thanksgiving that might show you that this Thanksgiving, we managed to have some fun and laugh. They say laughter is the best medicine and I am sure it is....especially after spending some time with these funny people.  Here is my daughter and son (at her house), engaged in a little exercise routine.   You see a couple of adults....I still see them as they were as kids.  They sure made me laugh here!



And this photo sure makes me smile!  My son with his ninety-four year old grandfather, my father-in-law and the old navy man's step-dad,  Bob - amused at all of us - as he always is.  A great photo!

  

We played a lot of Pictionary last week!  As you can see, they seem to be having a great time.  I'm not a 'game player' as the whole family will tell you, but I do enjoy playing this game.  Maybe because it is silly and involves drawing??  A margarita doesn't hurt either, this one offered to the photographer (me) by my favorite sister, Debbie.



Scott in a quiet moment.  

 

I have rarely been able to get a photo of the Grand-Dog,  Trixie.  She belongs to Kelly and Rick.  So, finally, with the help of Scott....well, here she is.  And, a great little dog she is.  She sat in a chair at the table when we played our game, probably wondering what her crazy relatives were doing.


  

Now, I have no memory of taking this photo at all.  But, unless someone took it with my iphone, I must have done it.  So silly and cute!  These two are fifteen months apart.  When they were small, I would have wondered if a picture like this would ever be possible, and yet, I have lived to actually see such things!

  

This photo was taken by Scott as we dropped him off at the airport in Little Rock last Tuesday.
Hardest thing about visits is saying "Goodbye" at the airport.  I can barely handle it, but seem, at least in this photo, to be doing a pretty good job.  I don't think my sister or my daughter are having that easy a time either, but there you are....a funny little group...making the best of parting, as my sister left the very next day.


 I've no idea why, but I always manage to take a photo of Scott as he walks into the airport.  And, so there he goes.  So glad he could come for the visit.  His mother is grateful.  And, thank you, Debbie, your sister is grateful.

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  And, hope you will visit me again.  I plan on doing a better job of this blog posting in the New Year....hold me to it!

Stay safe, warm and cozy until next time,  ♥ pat

Looks like you had a great time and Thanksgiving. It's always hard to see them go, no matter how old they are. Hope the upcoming holiday is as good for you.

OMGosh, your sister looks like a twin. Or did I forget that she is..lol.

Funny, when I saw the first pic, I started to imagine what they might be doing...exercising what not a guess.
I can see that you had a great holiday. Goodbyes are always hard when the person leaving is traveling a great distance and you don't know when you will see them again. But you had a great time and created many treasured memories for all of you and that is what is most important. Now you have the next visit to look forward to. Better rest up!
xx, Carol
