Thanksgiving: Georgia, Part 1

Kate, Jack and I arrived at Karen's Tuesday night after a 12 hour drive. I was pretty tired, but it was great to see the rest of my family, Mom, Dad, Kenny, Karen and all the kids. The kids, oh my gosh, the kids have all grown a little and are developing their own individual little personalities.

Erik was asleep, as were karens kids, but Kenny's kids were up and awake, VERY awake. Those kids are wild and full of energy. Kenny must have fed them sugar and caffeine (later I found out they did - coca-cola).

They loved the dog almost as much as jack, who got tons of attention and smooches. Paige and Madison would pick him up and hug him and try to give him a kiss on the cheek, but he would usually try to dodge them. He isn't much of a kisser.

Kate, Jack and I slept in Joshua's room along with the dog, Boo.

We were awakened by the sound of Joshua walking into his room, spotting the dog and then screaming from the terror. It was like that scene from E.T. where Trudy found E.T., except not very funny, especially for Joshua. So, thats how we found out Joshua is scared of dogs. It took a few days, but when we left, Joshua gave Boo a very quick hug.

The next day we started the day by going over to the hotel/motel that Kenny's family and Mom/Dad were staying and watched over the kids as they swam in the pool. We then dried off and played games in the hotel room for another hour or two. It was so nice to see Mom and Dad.

After that, we went back to Karen's to put down Jack for his nap and Kenny, Christy, Mom and Dad took the kids to the Mall of Georgia. We all met back up for dinner that night at Karen's. Karen and Dad took care of dinner and got deli meats and chips.
