We returned from our great trip to Missouri last night. It is a long 9-10 hour trip, but completely worth it when you are around family. We had 28 for Thanksgiving dinner and everyone had a wonderful time. The 3 4-year-old girls LOVED life on the farm making dirt soup, the other kids enjoyed fishing in the creek and shooting cans, while the adults enjoyed staying warm inside with good company and great food. We were very glad to see Grandpa doing so well after surgery and pray that he continues to do so. He is still able to get around to feed the cows and do a few things around the farm.
We were able to stay with Rachel and Jerry (Aaron's sister and brother-in-law) on our way Wednesday and we appreciate having a place to crash to break up the long trip. While we were there Jerry took our family picture so that Aaron's mom and dad can have an updated picture for Christmas. They all turned out great and Sherla will have a hard time deciding which ones to choose.
