Thanksgiving in South Carolina

We had an amazingly relaxing few days in South Carolina with Jason's parents...we got to SLEEP, and to EAT (and deep-fried a yummy turkey!), and the kids went FISHING, and we DECORATED for Christmas....  Thank you to Nana and Papa for letting us come spend a few days at your wonderful retreat!!  (It was GREAT to see Papaw, too!!)

The homework still had to be done.

Senior Picture day in Richmond

Sunday, the kids and I packed up and drove to Richmond to meet with our friend and photographer, Jimmy Sadler, to have Frances' Senior pictures taken.  While there, I took a few pictures of my own....on my phone because I didn't bring my real camera.  Yes, it was one of THOSE days.

So, here are a few of MY pictures from the day...

The guest of honor...My pictures do not do her  justice. 






Jimmy's pictures of all of the kids are MUCH better than mine...but those will have to wait until another time...
