Faith is Not Believing that God can, It's Knowing that He Will

Our Thanksgiving...

For Thanksgiving this year we went to visit my cousins. Travelling with seven people, and especially three little boys, can take a while. Packing and loading the car with seven peoples things is not the most enjoyable task either. But on Thursday morning before we headed down to my cousins we loaded the car with all the bags, suitcases, and food. We took Broccoli and Rice Casserole, Sweet Potato Casserole, and Cranberry Nut Bread which thankfully did not get smashed!:) When we ended the two and a half hour drive which really is not that much we were very glad. Two and a half hours is not that long but gets old sitting next to a active five-year-old who every five minutes asks "Are We There Yet?!" or "Are we almost there?". It can get old.

We had our Thanksgiving dinner outside in our cousins yard which is so gorgeous with all its pecan trees and big fields across the street. After we ate my cousins McKenzie (15), Madeline (9), Caroline, and I went on a walk through the woods and fields and took lots of pictures and videos for our Pride and Prejudice "trailer". :) We headed back and road my cousins horses as it was getting dark. She has three horses, Abasha, Candy, and Mr. Darcy but we only rode Candy. I like to ride her because she's very comfortable!:)

We then changed into our Pajamas and had dessert. Then went to their room and watched "Sense and Sensibility" and had tea sitting around Caroline's suitcase which had been turned into a small "table" with a blanket draped over for sitting around and sipping our tea and watching Elinor and Marianne.

We had a really good Thanksgiving and I hope that all of you had one as well!
