Thanksgiving Weekend

We went home for the long weekend and stayed at my parents house. It was my 26th Birthday on Thanksgiving day! And can you believe that I, the novice, cooked the TURKEY! It acutally turned out good. You should have seen my mom and I in the kitchen taking the insides out. Have you ever seen a turkey neck? Yikes. It was odd staying at my parents house and sleeping in the same bed with Thomas. Kinda feel guilty, but it's ok! Too weird. It was great getting to see our families for a few days and eat lots of good food. I feel so honored to be blessed by God with such a wonderful family. Not only my own, but the Cranes. Renee can make anyone feel at home. :)

Friday, my mom took me shopping for my bday, then we met Thomas and his family at the movies to see "Walk the Line," the life story of Johnny Cash. It was a great movie, except for the fact they left out that it was his relationship with God that turned his life around, and not just his beloved June. Secular movies. O well. What a great opportunity that would have been to tell so many people about what brings TRUE happiness.

So, poor Lucy, my parent's Jack Russel. She hates bells. Mom got her a Santa outfit (ridiculous I know) and it has little gold boots with bells on them. The sound of the bells petrify her so, that she's motionless. If you know Jack Russels's you know that it's very rare for them to not be running and hopping around insanely. It was so hilarious! We got the outfit on and she just stood there, afraid to move for fear that the bells would ring. Isn't that weird?


PS. Thomas is still job hunting, so pray he finds a great job soon!
