last year at this time...

we were on our way to Oklahoma City for Thanksgiving. Randy and I, Shawn & Nicole, Miranda and Tyler drove 20 straight hours to my sister Kathy's home. We had such a great trip! Imagine Randy & I in the front seat "listening" to the 1st Season of "The Office" while the kids are watching it. That was my introduction... very strange when you can't see what in the heck you are hearing.
But what a memorable Thanksgiving we had!



And the best part? My niece and nephew's darling kids! Cousins Parker and Kennady are the best of buds and waaay cute!

And I was pleasantly surprised to see the most vivid Fall colors everywhere! Who knew! What a treat!





The whole gang in Chickasha, Oklahoma looking at the incredible Christmas light show! A MUST SEE if you live remotely close!


Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day with your loved ones.
We are so thrilled that Randy's parents are coming over for the day. They live in Surprise, Arizona. They just celebrated their 65th Wedding Anniversary this month and we plan to honor them all day long. I want my kids to hear their story, how they met, their 26 years in the Air Force, raising five kids, how they lived all over the world, overcame the loss of their only daughter Patty at 18 years old to a drunk driver and their son Barry to cancer three years ago. They are such an amazing, loving couple. I am blessed to have them in my life!

It looks like your trip to my city last year was a fun one! Glad you got to see the lights in Chickasha - it's famous here in Oklahoma. Enjoy this year's celebration!

Every new friend is a new door to a different world…. To be depressed is to be lonely; to have a friend is to be happy...
