thanksgiving in louisiana

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

Thanksgiving day was a quiet one out in the swamp/bayou. My parents hosted Thanksgiving at their house and we enjoyed dinner with mine and Joel's parents together. I am so blessed that our family's can share the holidays together, it makes things so nice. We enjoyed chatting, cooking, and crafting for the gender reveal the next day. Joel and his brothers enjoyed watching football, playing football, and engaging in some pool. Even Rayne joined in on the game! You won't find any Turkey or food pictures here, the turkey was already cut by the time I woke up, and well..the food went fast too!
Beautiful sunset at my parents

And then on Saturday we had a thanksgiving picnic at my aunt and uncle's farm house out in the country. It was so fun to just relax and kick back in such a serene place. The boys had fun playing games and the girls enjoyed chatting and making smores.
