Thanksgiving 2010

Finally, I am sitting down to concentrate on a Thanksgiving post! Russ, GA and I traveled to San Angelo to spend the night at the deer camp. Russ grew up hunting with his dad and their family friends on this ranch and it still holds wonderful memories for the Sebrings. It was REALLY cold, but thank goodness we only stayed 1 night. This South Texas family can't take too much cold weather. Jack and GA had a blast running around and looking at all the scenery, including looking for deer. After Thanksgiving dinner, GA and I left Russ to stay behind and hunt for another night and we headed into Midland to warm up and visit some of my favorite places. I was able to meet up with Oceana and see how much she has grown, even from the summer! I can't believe she is in 5th grade and remember I taught her in kindergarten! Time flies by...

Enjoy the snapshots of our fun and busy Thanksgiving! I think I need another week to recover!

Running back and forth from the flagpole was a favorite pasttime.

Daddy and his little girl!

Back in Midland (in the warmth) with Oceana
On our way home, a stop in Sterling City to eat lunch at the DQ, we played in a park across the street to give GA a break.

She loved for us to chase her! Her face says it all!

Playing hide and go seek! She would actually count to 10!
Sorry I posted this twice!

My name is Grace Ann and I'm an Alpha Delta Pi "Alpha" hear me "ROAR!"

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this picture of my sweet girl!

She is reading the Eric Carle book, "Will you be my friend?" It has no words and I love how she can tell a story from the pictures! Early literacy is a beautiful thing to witness!!!
More story-telling!

The end of our journey at a Chili's in Boerne, by this time little miss had pulled out pony tail and she looked like a little ragamuffin. But it was so late and we were so ready to get home...I was just glad she went potty before going into the restaurant!
Yes, if I have not mentioned before... GA is potty-trained!!! This makes me super happy these days!!! Because now we only have to buy diapers for one little Sebring!
I hope you enjoyed our pictures! Now it is off to getting ready for a merry, merry Christmas!
