a late Happy Thanksgiving

I was out of town this past week visiting some relatives in Kansas. It was pretty chilly up there for me, which made most of them laugh since I can't take the cold. Even though I was born in Kansas, I have lived in Louisiana since I was about 6, so I don't do well in the cold. While we were there, we visiting with both my mom's side and my dad's side of the family. It was a bit of a whirlwind trip. We drove home yesterday which wouldn't have been bad, but the entire 13 hour drive home was rain, rain, and more rain. It was pretty bad, but we made it. It is great to be home, really it is.

Here is a picture of my grandfather's old farmhouse. My aunt still lives on the same property, but nobody lives in this house anymore. I don't think it is really even safe to go inside of the house anymore. It seems to be getting in pretty bad shape. When I was a little girl, I was always scared while staying here, especially the upstairs. The first year that Lee and I were married, we stayed with my grandfather for a few days for a visit and I figured that I had outgrown being scared to be by myself upstairs, but it still felt just as creepy as it did when I was a kid!!!
