Thanksgiving in Mississippi

We are back from a couple day break. We had a great time visiting Mandy’s family in Mississippi. While it’s always a short trip, wrapped up with a long drive, we always have a good time. Henry always is happy to get to see is Granny H. and Gramps, especially since Gramps has race cars and tractors!

Crossing the Mississippi bridge. Such a great sight after so many hours of Texas and Louisiana in the mirror.

I hope that your family got to spend some good times together too. It’s always great to have an excuse to sit back and enjoy each other.

Below are a few photos of Henry having fun with his Mississippi family. I’m disappointed to see that Granny H. missed being in quite a few photos. I’m hoping I’ll get some more photos from Aunt Lindsey or Granny H.

 

Trey's Poncho
Some Thanksgiving Eve memories of friends and family we no longer have with us. This is a poncho that used to be Trey’s that Lindsey took from Mandy years ago. She decided to return it now that it’s none of our styles.
Mississippi Thanksgiving Chill
Thanksgiving morning was pretty chilly in Mississippi.

The morning chill did not keep Henry from running around the house though.

Henry enjoyed Maw-Maw D.’s ladder the entire trip. She’s another that we no longer have with us, but she sure wasn’t forgotten.

Did I mention the food? Chicken and dumplings… my favorite discovery since moving to the south.

Under that cracker love is one hell of a corn casserole.

After a little while we went outside and enjoyed some tractor time with Gramps.

Of course we needed to sit in Gramps’ truck.

After a little while we headed off into the woods with Gramps to see his big big tree.

If you ask Henry now, he’ll say he loved the mule. This is what he looked like the entire drive. He was happy to be in the woods every time we stopped.

Climbing on the mule. Talked a big game about riding in the back and immediately scared himself out of it. In a couple years we won’t be able to keep him off this thing.

It was a great trip. We don’t get to make it often, but when we do, we have some great family time.

Thanks, Mississippi!

Cheers,

Kim
