Here we are, a week after Thanksgiving, and I still haven't finished talking about Thanksgiving weekend! And since I'm getting not one, but two snow days, I figured there is no excuse. :)
After we bid adieu to Zach's family, we stopped by to visit our friend Jonathan and Jordan for a bit. Then we drove to NLR and checked into our hotel. Once we had grabbed dinner there, we headed over to my stepsister Kim's house to visit with her, my other stepsister Shelly (who was in town from Chicago), Kim's daughter Amie, and Amie's daughter Harper. I didn't take any photos since it was so late, but here is a #throwbackThursday pic of (some of) my dad's side of the family:
Saturday morning, we had breakfast at our hotel and headed down to LoCo (Lonoke County) to Carlisle to visit with my best friend Monica, her fiancé Rob, and their little girl Autumn. Rob's two kids, Lauryn and Caleb, were also there!
I didn't get to attend Autumn's birthday party because I had to work, so we brought her present (literary and artistic board books) and visited a bit. We ended up doing an impromptu photo shoot, and I got some pretty decent shots of this growing little family!
Lauryn declared that Jane Eyre is scary. *lol* That's your Auntie "Lorelai" for ya, Autumn!
I love this one on the right!
sweet growing family
Awww, I just love these folks!
After Monica's, we headed back up the road to Lonoke to see my mama, Matt (one of my brothers), and Will (my nephew). I didn't take many photos because my mom's hip was bothering her, and she felt horrible, and my brother isn't much on having is picture taken anyway. But here are two photos:
I'm praying that Mama feels much better very soon and that we will get more photos in next time. Then we were on the road home. We stopped in Morrilton, where we saw the most beautiful sky:
Isn't it spectacular?!
Well, that is our Thanksgiving weekend, minus Sunday. But I'll try to talk about that tomorrow because that's when we decorated for Christmas. :)
