|Sisters....the reason we were all together|
By Wednesday, my parents, Lisa and the kids and Aunt Sue and Uncle Jim arrived. Since everyone wanted to catch up, and they had all been traveling that day....we opted to have food catered at our house. We chowed on Taco Mama, drank margaritas and stayed up late visiting.
Thanksgiving day started with a walk, some mimosas, and then cooking. Everyone began arriving by lunch, and we were well into enjoying our day by the time the Forrey's arrived. We visited with everyone late into the night, and had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner! Steve smoked a turkey and chicken, and fried another turkey and chicken. The rest of us contributed the other traditional sides. We ate, drank, told stories and laughed a lot!

Since Jenna is beginning her college search, Steve walked us all around campus for a tour. We swung by the bookstore to load up on Alabama gear, and then returned to the tailgate for game preparation. Thankfully Alabama crushed Auburn this time around, so it was a win for everyone (but Brian)! Unfortunately, the traffic following the game was horrendous, so it took us several hours to get home. Sadly everyone flew out early the next morning.
So until we all meet again for Alex and Avery's wedding....
