Happy Turkey Day !

Our family in Georgia is so spread out that we are not all getting together for Thanksgiving this year. My Mother (from Buford) is going to my Brother's in Watkinsville. Our son and his family (from Flowery Branch) will be getting together with his wife's family. We will be going to our daughter's house, about 30 minutes away in Douglasville for Thanksgiving dinner with all the traditional fixins.

Today started out pretty cool outside....not freezing, but close. There are a lot of campers here this week, even with the cold temps. Of the 32 sites, I think about 20 are taken. Lots of families celebrating the holiday.

After a quick breakfast of coffee, bagels and cream cheese, we got things together to take to Samantha's for dinner. DSiL, Nate's, parents were coming and bringing the turkey. Samantha had a ham, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes with the little marshmallows on top, crescent rolls and corn bread dressing. I made the dressing when we got there while she was doing the other dishes. Those are all of the traditional dishes we always have on Thanksgiving for as far back as I can remember. We had a good time visiting with the other grandparents and playing with the three boys.

DGS, Kyle (5), has been with us at the camper since Saturday (his school was out this week) so we took him home and brought the next one, Logan (2 1/2) with us back to the camper to stay until we take him home on Saturday when we'll say our goodbyes for a while as we head back to Florida for a visit and then to Texas. Tomorrow is supposed to be a nice day so we will probably have one last camp fire and Logan can roast marshmallows for s'mores.

The food looks scrumptious.
