We spent Thanksgiving Day in Mount Pleasant this year. Grandma had a full house as usual, and now that I'm an adult I get to help cook the meal rather than being repeatedly told to "get out of the kitchen". In fact, I was the one ordering the kids an men out of our way at times, which is a fun change for me. Nikki carved the turkey this year and Sheila helped prepare food as well as my uncle Kent's fiancee, Elaine. She's practically my aunt by now - although they aren't officially married by now I think they've been living together long enough now that common law marriage has kicked in.
On Friday we loaded the car headed to Forney. Jason and Heather and the kids were at Dad's for the day so we went to see them and eat...again. It was rainy, so we didn't get to play outside like we normally do when we are there. We all got a bit of cabin fever at one point, so Jason, Heather, Nick and I headed to Walmart to do some Christmas shopping. It was one of the only choices in Forney, but I managed a pretty productive trip and purchased several things on my list.
