After burning off a little energy from the long drive, we enjoyed a late lunch at Cracker Barrel just outside of Atlanta, & then our big girls drove away to South Carolina & the rest of us drove back to Florida. From the reports I've heard, I think Uncle Glen & Aunt Cindy made some great memories with my big girls & may have spoiled them just a little. ;) Meanwhile, back at the ranch, I mean RV, I spent most of the week purging, sorting, organizing, & being amazed at how different the dynamics are without my big girls around! Jake & Genna got into an argument about which one of them missed Shanan & Alyssa more. :) And I know Shanan & Alyssa were shocked to hear that I survived without having them around to do their chores. ;) Somehow, I managed! :)
|Jake and Genna had fun playing with the goats|
We also got a chance to attend my extended family's annual eve of Christmas Eve dinner. I enjoyed the chance to see my aunts & uncles & many of my cousins. Time keeps marching on, & no one is getting any younger, so it is good to take advantage of the chance to visit!
|Katie had a blast at the family reunion|
|Katie and Linda's cousin Marty had some bonding time together|
|Of course a visit to Shealy's BBQ is a must|
All in all, it was a great visit! Thanks so much for the hospitality & allowing us to add much chaos & noise to your lives, Glen & Cindy, Mama & Daddy!
|There was lots of roughhousing with Uncle Glen and lots of Jake nosepicking, this shows both|
|Until next time...|
