Thanksgiving Good (and Bad) Times

This year for Thanksgiving we travelled up to NW Arkansas to spend the day with Landon's family on his dad's side. On wednesday we drove from Hot Springs to Siloam Springs, about 3.5 hours north. Anyone who knows me knows how motion sick I can get on long car rides! Heck, I can't even play on the swings because I get sick (seriously!!). So I literally spent the entire drive with my head in a Wal-Mart sack. I managed to hold it together to do some light shopping at the Target in Fort Smith, but then it was right back to my sack! Once we got to Siloam, I was fine for the rest of the trip.

Thanksgiving day was absolutely awesome! We travelled to Beaver Lake and the weather could not have been more perfect. The kids played outside all day and we took a walk after lunch to find sea shells. I kept making the comment that it was "the best Thanksgiving ever!" So of course things had to take a turn for the worst...

Just as we were about to head for home I recieved a call from Animal Services in Hot Springs. Apparently all 3 of our Labs (plus one we were dogsitting) got out of the backyard. My precious Mylie was hit by a car on the bypass. She is by far my favorite of the dogs and I know I am her favorite in the family:) I was able to pick her up on friday morning and take her to the vet where she is still under observation. She has no broken bones (thank God), but has a severe case of road rash from where she was hit and slid. They are most concerned with internal bleeding. So if you remember, say a little prayer for my girl. She is the sweetest dog I could ever ask for and is the only one in the family that listens to me!

I hope everyone had a wonderful day filled with laughter and love. I am blessed to have amazing in-laws and I married into such a close-knit Christian family. They are truely a testament to God's wonderful love!

First of all.. you guys have 3 dogs??? Wow...soon enough you guys will have as many as my parents :) Well sorry to hear about your favorite...I'll be praying for her.
And I totally feel you on the motion sickness. All my life I've been given a hard time cause I don't like roller coasters AT ALL! And every time we'd go to my grandparents up in Show Low it never failed... I was puking! It has gotten better, but I have to stay focused and sit in the front... so i feel you on that!
Glad you guys had a good thanksgiving!
