A Thankful November!

We have had a wonderful past few weeks and have had so much to be thankful for leading up to Thanksgiving this past week. At the beginning of the month, we went to Dothan with our friends Nick, Joy, and Jillian for the Peanut Festival! I had not been since sophomore year of college, so it was a lot of fun to be back. Wesley rode a Ferris wheel for the very first time! Jillian had the best seat in the house for the Demolition Derby, but she wasn't exactly sure what to think about the Ferris wheel. Her facial expression cracked us up...but she finally started enjoying it after a few times around!

While we were in Dothan we also got to celebrate Amy's 28th birthday with her!

The next weekend, Wesley and I went to Montevallo to visit his mom's mom, "Nanny" and her husband Jim. Jim used to be the Dean of Students at the University of Montevallo . They recently named their new student union after him. We were not able to be there for the ribbon cutting ceremony, so we were excited to see the building that they named after him while we were in town. The inside has recently been renovated and is so nice. We all enjoyed the window box filled with pictures of Jim during his time as Dean.

This year we were able to celebrate Thanksgiving in Dothan with my family. My mom's twin brother and his family joined us. The guys shot skeet and rode 4-wheelers, we played games, and ate a ton of yummy food! I was especially glad to be there since I had to work last Thanksgiving.

It's been a wonderful month, and we have so much to be thankful for!
