Thankful? Yes We Were.

Happy Cyber Monday!  Anyone find any good deals yet??? In lieu of shopping, I'd rather catch up over here - and tell y'all a little about our wonderful Thanksgiving weekend....

This was our little home away from home on my Aunt's Ranch in Oklahoma.  She calls it the "Austin" Cabin....:))
 And this was the view I'd wake up to in the morning.  Doesn't it just call for a big cup of hot coffee and lazy day pajamas??? Ahhhhh.  And yes, even with a 2 year old, it was this peaceful.
 We had the obligatory HUGE Thanksgiving meal on Thursday, complete with family games.....

 Of course, Uncle Chris was the best at the Minute to Win it games!
 On Friday, the weather was perfect for little hiking with our Thomas backpack.
 Ugh.  Can't you just eat him up?
 And what little boy doesn't want to splash in mud puddles??
 Or play around with his Aunt & Uncle?

The older two were busy at the shooting range or sitting in the blind looking out for deer with Dad.....no pictures there.....

We were even organized enough to take a Beck/Rummer/Dean/Darling Family picture this year!!
 That's 2 Original Becks, 5 Spouses, 6 Grandkids, 5 Great-Grandkids, & one Grand-dog.  Whew!
It was a wonderful weekend - completely unplugged from the world and focused on my family.  And that is more than enough to be Thankful for!!

I'd just like to start by saying your son is cute as a button! The cabin looks delightful and from the pictures,everything seems to have very family oriented and peaceful. I wish my family and I could vacate to a serene area like where you are in Oklahoma- we live in the city and rarely get quiet. Our activities mostly consist of board games or even trivial Spinning Wheel games. But it really is nice to get out into the open and be physical, there is nothing like it! Glad you and the family enjoyed yourselves!
