Thanksgiving 2009
We headed to the small East Texas town where time stands still. Erika headed out with us and we enjoyed some shopping in Mineola. We ate the best hamburgers in Texas at East Texas burger. We had a relaxing time. We had 17 people fit into a 2 bathroom, 1 television, 1 kitchen table and lots of love in the lake house. We have enjoyed the lake house more than we imagined. When we go there the kids forget about watching television, you take naps on the grass, and jump in leave piles. We had LOTS of family time, football, and food. It was great to see Kyle and all the other cousins. I look forward to Thanksgiving with the Pigg's every year.
Friday morning we headed to Liberty City to go on the Polar Express. We drove to Palestine that night to ride the train. It was so much fun. They played the story and had the chefs dance, pass out cookies/hot chocolate, and Santa gave each child a bell. Saturday we headed to the Christmas tree farm. It has become a tradition every Thanksgiving. Where can you get a 10 1/2 ft tree for $57. Somehow that night we managed to play Mexican Train...I am happy to say Rusty did not win, Big Daddy did. In keeping with tradition we headed back to McKinney this afternoon to decorate for Christmas.
We have so much to be thankful for: healthy children, Brassy Blueberries that affords us extra money and time with my mom, the lake house, extended family, a house that is cozy and has
