Thanksgiving 2014 in Gilmer

Chris and I have been together for nine years (!!) and began spending holidays together pretty early on in the relationship. Not sure how we established this, but we began alternating Christmas and Thanksgiving with his family and mine as soon as we began sharing these holidays with each other.  It’s been beyond helpful.

The years we go to Gilmer for Thanksgiving have such fond places in my heart. I love the way east Texas looks this time of year (tall pine trees with lots of reds, oranges and golds). I love how the chaos of Christmas hasn’t quite started and everything just seems quieter in Gilmer.

Gilmer is fast becoming one of Walt’s favorite places.  He loves his Nana and Papa, but probably what he loves the most is golf.  Check out this tee shot from #1.

We also had the pleasure of Chris’s aunt and uncle, Bernadette and Frank, making the trip from Austin. It’s always great to catch up with the Bruns’ side of the family.  With our bellies full of bacon-wrapped green beans and oyster casserole, we were happily content with another lovely Thanksgiving.

This guy devoured his Thanksgiving dinner three different times. He was in love with the sweet potatoes.
