A Thankful Heart

This Thanksgiving I had PLENTY to be thankful for. My life is continuously blessed, period. It was a fairly low key holiday for us, the majority of Jordan's family (The Massey side) made a trip to Missouri to see the 'out-of-staters', while the rest of us Massey's stayed here in the Lone Star State. I convinced my Dad and Sam to come for Thanksgiving dinner at Jordan's parent's home on Thursday, and to very much my surprise, he said 'ok.' (NOTE: My parents have recently split again, but I promise you, this is for the best, or at least I think so. I continue to pray for them everyday regardless.) Sam and Dad came Wednesday morning, Jordan was at the fire station, so it was just kids and Dad time. We went to Northpark and saw the new movie A Christmas Carol. It was in 3-D, and I haven't ever been to a 3-D movie, so I had a good time with it. Turkey Day was finally upon us, and we headed off to the Massey's to celebrate with Bree, Roy and J Bree (J's mom, dad, and sister)

After an evening of football wins (My 'Boys, and 'Horns pulled it out for me!) and fully bellies, Jordan and I called it a night with my Dad and Sam and headed back to the house. I had an early morning ahead..I was getting up for Black Friday! Never done that before, so it was interesting to see the madness before me. After a smushed finger and two stubbed toes, I made it home alive from Black Friday shopping, both arms full of goodies! 4 pairs of shoes, a Castle Lego, 8 piece luggage set, 4 sweaters, a pair of slipper boots..and a partridge in a pear treeeeeeee!

After shopping, Dad and Sam headed back to Austin City Limits and Jordan and I loaded up with Britt and headed down 2 1/2 hours to Belton to see the Fort/Wickliffe (J's mom's side) Granny and Woogie celebrated 50 years of marriage and to celebrate a large party was held on the lake in their honor. Lots of family and friends came to wish them congratulations, and it was a memorable event to remember.

All in all a great week and weekend! I woke up this morning so worn out..I think I need another couple days to recover. But..CHRISTMAS is here!!! I sit here in front of my oh-so-bright tree and mantle with a blazing fire in the fireplace..you know..it hit only 61 degrees today. Prefect reason to build a fire in Texas!!! ;) I'll be posting pictures soon of my preeeeeetttty house! Time to make some dinner..soup in bread bowls- YUM!
