Oklahoma for the Holidays...

I don't think Oklahoma has ever been so pretty, Carla's turkey has never tasted so juicy, and the kids have never had so much fun as this Thanksgiving trip. I am about ready to give up the Houston lights for a home where the deer and the antelope roam...  
We toured the incredible National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum.  Thanks Aunt Claudia for the tickets!  I loved the beautiful artwork, history I learned, and playing with James in the children's cowboy corral.

We always visit the Oklahoma zoo.  My favorite is the Oklahoma Trails exhibit.

We also visited the Express Ranch to see their Clydesdale horses.  They have a huge barn that is more posh than our house!  We were free to wander the barn with the kids and pet the horses. It blew my mind that they would open the barn doors to the public like that!  Oklahomans are so friendly!

The kids favorite part was petting this nice kitty.
 John's Grandma Nan lives with Carla now.  It has been great to spend more time with her.  
 We have also spent time with John's brother, Seth and his family.  He lives in a beautiful neighborhood with a lake that I love taking walks around, especially at sunset!

 They are always very generous with their house, food, and toys!  We had an Indian feast the night before Thanksgiving.  

We had a great Thanksgiving.  I went with the kids on our annual turkey day adventure through the green belt.  All the cousins are growing up way too fast!

I can't say enough about Carla's cooking!  She really is Super Grandma in the kitchen!

    Pretending we are home on the range has been a perfect way to ring in the holidays!  Thank you so much for the hospitality Gregory family.

The Girl with the Dragon at the Zoo...

 Last weekend was for the blog books.  A nice tone was set doing a Friday night session at the temple, Saturday was spent at Hermann Park, and the grand finale was the chicken gumbo John made for Sunday dinner.  It was a  great weekend filled with food, family and slimy amphibians...
