Happy Thanksgiving

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. Geoff, David, and I spent a few days near Orlando visiting Geoff's grandmother. She loved seeing us, especially David. And I cooked my first turkey using Patty Anderson's recipe (mostly). It was delicious. We spent a couple of hours at the beach on Saturday. I wish we had gotten there sooner and could have stayed longer. I think I like the beach better than I thought I did. At first David wasn't sure about the big waves and the wet sand on his feet, but he loosened up after we took a little walk.

You might be a redneck if . . .

Feel the Cool Crisp Air

Fall is here and it's beautiful! Normally I dread this time of year because I know that it means in just a few more months it could be bitterly cold and I HATE being cold. But for some reason this year I'm not dreading it quite as much as I used to. Maybe after enduring the dreadfully hot summer that we had I'm ready for the cool weather. Or maybe having David is giving me more to look forward to as I see things through his eyes. I wonder if he remembers how much enjoyed playing in the piles of leaves I would rack up for him last year.

Saturday afternoon/evening we took a lovely drive through part of the Natchez Trace. A lot of times when Geoff wants to take a drive I have a hard time relaxing and enjoying it. I don't think I've ever been good at taking drives just for the sake of driving. I want to reach the destination. Of course, this time, there was no destination. We had a picnic for dinner, soup and grilled cheese. Then David and I picked out some pretty leaves together.

David was getting quite antsy so since we were near the Bellevue Mall we decided to stop there to let him play for a while. He had the best time running, jumping, climbing, and sliding with all the other kids. Too bad that play area is so far from us.

Happy Halloween! David really started to get the hang of trick or treating when he realized he was getting candy. He kept stopping in the middle of the sidewalk to try to open a piece, which he finally succeeded. He also kept trying to go into people's houses and helping himself to the candy. Thankfully everyone was really nice about it. Thanks Robin and John for letting us join you.
