Thanksgiving 2009

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. As always we spent it at Jekyll Island with the rest of us Jordan's (and Musgrove's).

As always there was too much food and I think Thanksgiving day was the only day that we did not indulge in some oyster eatin'. It was good to be around family and to get some real time to spend with Hayley and Leighton. It's a lot easier to go out and play when your not at home thinking I really need to be inside vacuuming or dusting or laundry!

Friday I took the girls for a walk down to the ocean. Hayley asked me if we were going swimming. Uh, no.

This is a Horseshoe Crab that we found.

Then Friday night we went to the campground on the island and had our annual low country boil and some more oysters! I did not take my camera I stole these off of Facebook from Sarah (used to be Jordan) Hall. Thanks in advance, Sarah!

This is Sarah and her dad.
No, that is not his hair, it is a hat. And all I'm going to say about that is you should have seen Mr. Bobby wearing this hat. HILARIOUS!

Saturday was the famous Florida/Florida State game. And all I'm gonna say is GOOOO GATORS!!!!!

After we watched the game we got ready to go see Mr. and Mrs. Claus, the lighting of the Christmas tree and the fireworks.

(The girls with their Great Grandaddy.)

Then we hoped in this....

... to go see Santa. The Red Bug rental man reassured us that "EVERYONE would be driving their Red Bugs to see the fireworks." Well by all means, we wouldn't want to be left out of the "cool crowd!" And who wouldn't want to ride 25 (27 at best) miles per hour next to the windy ocean and freezing cold air blowing in my just blow dried my hair, hair? Umm, yeah I'll take being a nerd and riding in a car over being in the "cool crowd" any day if it means I can arrive without catching The Pneumonia Bug.

Ok, seriously B and B Jr. would it kill you to smile for a picture?

And Sunday we did this....
