And so the holiday season begins...

We had Thanksgiving with Roy's family on Saturday. The food was wonderful and I love catching up with everyone. Roy comes from a large family (he is in the middle of 6 kids), so family gatherings are usually pretty crazy!! Along with our Thanksgiving dinner we also had a birthday party for our niece, Torren. She is turing 2 and her birthday falls the day after Thanksgiving this year. The kids had so much fun playing with all their cousins. Roy's sister, Patricia, who he has never met was also here this year. She lived in Mobile, AL and did not even know of her family here. Roy did some research and found her and she decided to move here and get to know her family. She and Roy have the same father and Patricia has been with her mother since she was 18 months old. She just made it into town last week, so it was fun to get to meet her.

We will leave on Wednesday afternoon to head to Fayetteville, AR to spend Thanksgiving Day with my family there. I am very excited!! This will be the first holiday we have been there in a very long time.
I have to go in the morning and have all of my widsom teeth taken out. I am very nervous!! My wonderful husband is taking off work tomorrow to take care of me! Pray for me that all goes well! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

Hope your surgery went well. I had that done in college. I think that's great your husband and his sister are getting to know each other. Family is so important.
