Well, before December gets here I wanted to post about my Thanksgiving. The hubby and I had a great first Thanksgiving together this year. We were so lucky to get to go home and spend the day with BOTH sides of our families. What a gift from God that we can do that. The night before Thanksgiving we got into Louisiana around 8 o'clock and jumped right in with helping my parents with the cooking. Joel especially loved helping disect the Turkey. He is so used to working on his cadaver in medical school that he just dove right in and pulled everything out. I was completely engrossed and did not watch for long.
Our Thanksgiving day involved lots of talking, laughing, 4-wheeling, golf cart riding, throwing rocks into the lake, and playing with Rayne. It was really so fun to get to hang out with everyone and catch up.
Rayne did not want to leave Louisiana. She loves and misses all the attention and space to run around in.
Beautiful place setting for our Thanksgiving dinner !
On Friday, we went up to LSU for the game and tailgated for the Arkansas game. I never get tired of looking at this beautiful stadium. It's just amazing at how pretty it is inside and out. Thank you LSU for the win! We'll see you in Atlanta!
On Saturday, we wanted to enjoy ourselves some good southern cooking and went up to New Orleans for the day and night. It was a great time to eat great food and spend time with family and friends while we were there.
On the way to Nola, we went through some rough storms, then we noticed a beautiful rainbow behind us. The photo doesn't do it justice. There were almost 5 randbows all behind us. It was so beautiful. I love rainbows.
This has got to be the most delicious meal I have had in a long time. Stuffed Shrimp, Shrimp Pasta, and Fried Shrimp. Just this photo is making me hungry.
