Thanksgiving and getting ready for Christmas in Picayune

Jeff and I had Thanksgiving dinner with a large group of relatives here in Picayune.  There were about 50 or so people attending a potluck dinner outside at one relative’s house.  Great food, lots of good company!  The only downside was that I had laryngitis, so I was unable to carry on a conversation for more than a few minutes at a time.  But everyone understood.

This morning it was 31 outside when we got up, pretty cold for this area!  Here’s the pasture outside our door covered in frost:

We had lunch at my daughter’s in-laws house, just across the driveway from her house!  After lunch the guys got the christmas tree and all the ornaments down from the attic and the kids got to decorate the tree.  Here are a few pictures of the tree decorating:



We’re here at my daughter’s house now – it’s been a week and this is my first post!

We’re at my daughter’s house now in Picayune, MS.  I have five grandkids here so we’ve been real busy with them instead of making posts.

It’s been pretty nice weather-wise, not too hot and not too humid, until today when it’s cold and raining a lot!  So, I have a little downtime to write a post.

I’m really enjoying being right outside my daughter’s door!  They have a large enough yard and a pole with a 30-amp plug on it so we pulled right up and set up just a few steps away from them.

The kids are getting so big!  I’m glad we’re able to spend several weeks here so we can get to know the kids better and spend good time with them including some time one-on-one with each of them.

I’ve attached pictures of the kids.
