Family and Holidays

Well, Thanksgiving is behind us once again. We had a great day. We spent the day at Chuck's mom and dads with my parents and his sister's family. Chuck only has one sister and she usually swaps the holidays between her family and her husbands family. I have two brothers and my brother Chris who lives in the DC area will sometimes come home for Christmas. My brother Hale and his family live in Tennessee and spend the holidays with his wife's family.

This Thanksgicing was much better than last year. Sommer was at Canopy Cove for last Thanksgiving and we did not get to see her until Friday so it was very sad at our house last year. Thankfully she is hope and doing so much better this year. Eating disorders are a lifelong journey and she is doing great. I am very proud of her.

Tomorrow, it is off shopping on Black Friday. I can not wait! My friend Stacy is even going to WalMart in the morning to do some shoppiong. She has never been on Black Friday so she is a little nervous about lines!!! She and her mom and aunt usually go to Appalachicola on Black Friday.

Chuck had to go in and work a few hours this afternoon but will be home before long. He is not often home on the holiday so it is nice to have him home for a change. I kniw he misses flying but he is also grateful that he does in fact have a job. Hopefully he will be able to get back into flying again sometime soon. He had an opportunity to fly in Belgium but the money was just not worth the time he would be away from family. I told him to go for it but I think he enjoys being closer to home now!!

Hope everyone had a happy and safe Thanksgiving.
