*UPDATE* Sorry I had this drafted a month ago, just been super busy with December Fun, bdays, anniversary, etc.
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. The kids and I took off to TN the Monday before Thanksgiving to meet up with my side of the family, and the trip there went pretty well. We left around 8-9am, and got in around 7:30-8pm. The day after we got there we went to see the New Titanic exhibit in Pigeon Forge, and the day after we ate @ the Hard Rock Cafe in Gatilinburg, and went to the Ripley's Aquarium. We also went to some of the other Ripley' exhibits. I recieved a call that day from my husband who said he would be meeting us that night and would be with us for Thanksgiving afterall, YAY!! I felt like someone handed me the world, and had a smile on the rest of the day : )
Unfortunatly the night before Thanksgiving baby girl had a virus, which the day after Thanksgiving then ran through 4 of my other children, my 2 niece's, me, then my husband. Thankful to have had so many adults to help as that was crazy! So glad we were able to enjoy Thanksgiving with my family, and being in the lovely Smokey Mountains made it even sweeter!
