Turkey Trip!

We are headed out of town tomorrow for our first VERY long road trip in over a year. Although we have spent the past 5 Thanksgivings with Nate's side of the family, we are making the drive to Missouri to be with mine this year! Cannot wait, although I am petrified of the 8 hours in the car to my parents house, and then another 2 hours to Memaw's house on Thursday. We are also going to make a quick stop by St. Louis on Saturday and it's been way too long since we saw all of our STL friends, so I hope we can cram in as much 'togetherness' time as possible. Praying Truman sleeps a lot for us and isn't totally messed up with big changes in his routine---we are crazy enough to also bring Henry on this trip (yes, the dog who really hates to be in cars for long periods of time). I think we have lost our minds but it's going to be worth it!

So much to be thankful for this year----I can't even list it all for you right now. I promise to be reflective on my own time while shoving my face with turkey and taters and gravy. But mostly, just wanted to post pictures of my little man at Thanksgiving last year. It's quite the lesson in how quickly time will fly, whether you are ready for it to slip by or not. How was he this small only one year ago?



Thankful, indeed!

(also, is my blog the slowest thing to load in the entire universe or what? Maybe it's just me. But it's really annoying me right now)


  1. Have a great trip back home! I hope the car ride isn't too painful. While Henry might not enjoy the car rides, he will be happy to enjoy the holiday with you guys.

  2. Have a fun Thanksgiving! (Yes, your blog does load slowly....think it's all the very large photos).

  3. Happy Thanksgiving! I hope that your road trip is nothing but smooth sailing! Enjoy your family time...thankful indeed.

  4. We have a 18mo old and have been making the 7 hour trip from Mpls to KC 4-5 times a year. It's not easy, but not too bad. Variety of toys help, as does music. But the only thing that really make it easy was to leave at night, and have them sleep the whole way (or at least most of the way)!

    BTW, love the blog! (found it via Erin at It's All Happening)
