Happy Turkey Day! Tales From The Deer Camp...

Every other year I have Thanksgiving with hubby's family.
The smells are of burning leaves, musky deer hunters, pine trees and the aroma of some of the best cooking ever. In other words, Thanksgiving dinner is in the middle of the woods at the family deer camp. A little rustic, but as I look around and see the beauty in all that my Heavenly Father created, family included, it is a wonderful place to be.

Pictures were taken (you know I always have my camera!!!), stories were told, laughter filled the air, four wheelers were ridden, all as the campfire crackled. I've decided that my husband has a beautiful family and I am thankful for time spent with them.













Happy Turkey Day!
I would like to make a note that the winner of the Christmas Card showdown was #4. I have to really cherish the sibling hugs and smiles these days. However, Mom and Aunt Jo, I will make sure you get a copy of #1 just because...
Mom, Dad, Amb, Kirk, Keaton, Sawyer, Tate and the rest of my beautiful family, I love you all to pieces and thank God everyday for you. I'm sorry I missed out on Thanksgiving with you, but Mom, have the taters ready for I will be there Christmas!!!

Sis,
We missed you all! Looks like you did have some fun with your "deer" ones around you! No "four-legged" ones in sight?

Looking forward to Christmas - our first in our new home!
