Happy Blah-Blah Thanksgiving

I know you're all dying to hear about our wonderful Thanksgiving full of family traditions, and thankfulness, and giving to others. But I've got none of that for you.

We headed to Florida for Thanksgiving again this year with a sick Charlotte throwing up in the backseat. Thursday, Garrett was throwing up and by early Friday morning Randy and I were throwing up! Let's just say that we will not be eating corn or green beans for a looong time to come!

It took us 2 full days to recover and then we had to drive 12 hours back home, while stopping every hour or so because Garrett still had some belly issues!

We stopped in Ghettanooga, Tn for yet another potty break and Charlotte and I prayed the whole time for Jesus to protect us while our boys were sick in the Burger King.

We arrived home to a 56 degree house (as our heat was out) and all slept together in a way-to-small king-sized bed with sleeping bags and a space heater. (UPDATE: we got a new furnace today!)

My husband says I've been complaining a lot lately...hopefully this will get it off my chest!

Well, after enduring a week like that, I think you've earned the right to complain! That sounds MISERABLE! I think y'all should have a Thanksgiving redo (just at home, of course) after everyone is back to normal. Hope you all feel better soon!

Awww! That's horrible! I hate when trips get ruined. I'd be complaining way more than you are.

Yuck! Not much containment you can do on a road trip!! Better get the vehicle detailed :)
