Mother and I enjoyed a lovely Thanksgiving dinner with DD, SIL and DGD Melanie Rose in Indiana. SIL did most of the cooking, including a delicious pumpkin pie. We are tickled to hear Miss Melanie starting to put real words together. She even said, "punkin pie" yesterday. And, gobbled up a small slice.
In the meantime, DH and DS took a break from deer hunting in Minnesota and ate dinner with SIL's parents. Talk about turn around. The mighty hunters headed back to the woods today to see if they could bag another deer. DS got an 11-point buck during their first hunting expedition. He was pretty excited about it. Looks like we will have a freezer filled with venison for another year. Glad to see that everyone had a good holiday celebration. DM and I head for home tomorrow. Say a prayer or two that we have reasonable driving weather. I am not looking forward to another day of rain like we had last Wednesday. Clouds are OK, just no rain or snow.
Sending hugs and love to all, Lauri
