It's Good to be Home

We are back home after 3 full days of family fun. And I do mean FULL. Oh my goodness, all the food! We spent Thanksgiving day visiting with my mom and dad and my sisters and their husbands and kids. What a crazy bunch of folks. I don't remember when I have laughed so hard.

On Friday, we gathered around the TV to watch the Hogs lose to the LSU Tigers, then I ventured out with my girls to do some shopping. Not my idea of a good time. I think it must be tons more fun if you're not the one having to shell out the bucks. Luckily, I got out of taking them to the mall because of all the after-game traffic. Timing is everything, you know.

We spent Saturday afternoon at Petit Jean State Park looking for photo ops. Carl was in charge of the camera.

The weather was perfect for the mile hike down the mountain to the waterfall.

We had a wonderful time, but it sure is good to be home. I'll be posting more photos later. After I've unpacked and unwound. Have a fabulous week!

Your girls are gorgeous, Brenda! They sure do favor you, you know.

Love the pictures and I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of them.

Have a great week, my friend. :-)

Brenda, your girls are gorgeous! I've always pictured them younger, like in your old header. And I've never seen your chin! :-) Just beautiful pictures.

I have relatives who live on Petit Jean Mountain, although most of them have passed on.

What beautiful photos! Your girls are stunning! Thanks for sharing these photo's!

Someone is a very good photographer! Of course, the landscape and the beautiful women he had to photograph made it easier I'm sure!

These are absolutely keepers!

They all look directly out of a photo shoot in a magazine!

You and your girls are just gorgeous! You look more like their sister than MOM! Glad you had a special time with them.

Wow! Just as I was formulating my thoughts, "Your girls are gorgeous!" I scrolled down a little further and thought, "And that's where they get it!"

You look so beautiful in these pics. Not many moms can stand up next to their daughters while in the bloom of their youth without the viewer thinking, "Awe, that's too bad." LOL.

What beautiful pictures!!! Glad you had a good time!

Glad you had such a special time with your girls. Beautiful pictures too.

What part of GA are you in, if you don't mind my asking? I was born and raised here and live north of Atlanta.

My first thought was how beautiful the photo of the waterfall is. Carl's very talented with a camera.

Then I saw the photos of you and the girls. Beautiful. You're all beautiful. I can't wait to see the others you're going to post.

You look like three sisters. What pretty smiles you all have.
