Well it's been busy around here, and blogging hasn't exactly been on top of my list as y'all can tell.Anyway, we had a great Thanksgiving! My uncle, aunt, and cousins all came down; I had a blast!

here's is the turkey! I think almost all the turkey leftovers gone:)

Uncle Todd and Aunt Rhonda

The day after Thanksgiving it's become a tradition to go to Homestead Heritage in Waco. It's a lot of fun. It's a community that believes a lot like we do. They make quality items from furniture to food. They have a blacksmith shop, a gristmill, and a working homestead. It's over the Thanksgiving weekend, and they've had up to 5,000 people a day coming.

and cheese making. Chari helped the lady with the cheese

Saturday morning dad wanted to go to the Texas ranger museum. It was pretty interesting. Texas Rangers were noted for their ruthlessness to capture outlaws, and protect the border from raiding Mexicans.
here a ranger on his horse:)

Hmm, I've been wanting horseback riding lessons, but this wasn't quite what I was thinking of

giddy up, Chari

ride 'em cowboy
I'll post Christmas decorations later.
