Thanksgiving is almost here!! I traveled up to Tennessee on Friday with my friend Anita and arrived in Chattanooga around six o'clock. After my Aunt Leanne and my cousin Katie picked me up, we all drove to their beautiful home in Cleveland. Everyone was waiting for me when I walked through the door. The last time I had seen anyone was about six years ago. Uncle Randy still has a moustache! Aunt Leanne cooked a great dinner and I had a really good time talking and listening to everyone. My dear cousin Danielle is married and has a beautiful baby boy, Kaiden.
I desperately needed some time away from the college!! I was delighted to hear that I was staying in the guest room. It is going to be so wonderfully wonderful to have my own room these next nine days...Hallelujah!! I am so thankful the Lord brought me to Judson! Oregon is a long way from Tennessee and going to college in Alabama has given me the opportunity to spend time with family inTennessee.
The weekend was lots of fun! On Saturday, Danielle and I went to the theater and watched New Moon!! I had such a great time with Danielle and the movie was awesome! Sunday morning, we all went to church at Westwood Baptist. I felt right at home because it reminded me a lot of my church back in Oregon. Later that day, I went over to my Papa Joe and Grandma Shirley's home. Grandma made chocolate chip cookies and the world's best peanut brittle. I loved spending time with my Grandparents!
Today, Katie and I went to the movies. The Blind Side was really good and we had a fun time together! When we got home, Aunt Leanne cooked another great dinner and later we all watched The Proposal. I am so thankful to be with my family during this Thanksgiving break! I read a quote today that pretty much sums it all up... "The love of family is life's greatest blessing." Well, tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I can't wait to see everyone! Untill next time...
