Thanksgiving at Petit Jean

Larry and I spent a beautiful Thanksgiving Day at Mather Lodge on Petit Jean mountain--It is one of Arkansas' state parks and it is lovely.

 The weather was absolutely perfect as long as you were in the sun--Just a tad bit chilly in the shade. We went with our good friends, Bob and Joyce--our kids and theirs were celebrating with "the other side of the family" this year so we celebrated together with no shopping, no cooking, no cleaning up--it was really wonderful--the food was awesome-- I ate too much cornbread dressing--that is one of my favorite foods in the whole world.

Hope your day was blessed--I love you all.

I love cornbread stuffing too, Dianne. Glad you took time off and enjoyed the day with friends. We had a good and peaceful day with both of our sons and daughter-in-law.
I have heard a couple of other blogger friends say the same thing about loading pictures.
Love you~

It sounds like a wonderful way to spend Thanksgiving. And I would love to see some photos. I have a free account with Picasa. It is a part of Google and connects easily with blogger. You might try uploading some of your photos there.

Blessings and love,

Happy Thanksgiving! We had a similar "no kids, no cooking" time, but were able to be with our moms. Very nice indeed! I had to purchase more storage from Picassa, I too had reached my limit awhile back...very inexpensive, maybe $10 a year? xo
i was just thinking that a year at a nice
restaurant in the country would be a
wonderful break from my thanksgiving

Hi Dianne!
Your Thanksgiving sounds lovely. Ever since Amanda moved a few hours south and Jason moved to Austin, I have learned what it feels like to be away from children... I miss Jason dearly, but I am also learning to celebrate every time we are all together as a holiday! Rachael and her husband live locally and I'm glad Amanda can make it home most often!
I love your plan to share Thanksgiving with another couple in this way. What a wonderful idea!
Your blog looks great, Dianne!
I've been so "out of it" blogging-wise lately due to the very complicated mess our states have put education through ... our evaluations depend greatly on students' performance on state exams... {I know!} We're all stressed out and I'm praying often!

My father had a car accident a couple of months ago and he is doing so much better, thank God! No one was hurt, he sustained bruising and painful ribs and shoulders.
He is now living with us and will be here for a while ... for as long as he needs to always!
I hope all is well with your family. I'm sure you will be enjoying many cheery days with your children and grands!
God bless you always, Dianne!
♥ Maria
