Thanksgiving in DeFuniak Springs, FL
It's finally time to post another blog from our travels a couple of weeks ago. This has been a busy week, so I apologize for the delay. After spending a week in Alabama, we all packed up and drove to North Florida the day before Thanksgiving. This was a new thing for us because in past years, everyone has always come to our house for Thanksgiving. But we are no longer centrally-located, for sure! Clint made the long drive north, so we were glad to see Daddy when we got there!
Hampton had fun exploring the new environments and seeing all of this cousins, his Aunt Jennifer and Uncle Wes, his grandparents Nana and PawPaw, and Mamaw - his great grandmother. We saw a lot of extended family as well on Thanksgiving Day at the big dinner at the community center. We celebrated Clint's birthday while were there too.
One of our biggest projects, as you can see above, was getting Hampton's handprints and footprints for some picture frames I am giving as Christmas presents. It was interesting to say the least!! It was supposed to be "mess-free," but Hampton's hands and feet were already bigger than the mess-free ink pads! So we had to put the ink on his hands and feet. As you can see, apparently his face started itching while he had ink on his hands! It went from bad to worse, so we had to take pictures of him! We had lots of fun!
I'll post more pictures later from our week in Dallas.
