We had a wonderful Thanksgiving at the cabin in North Carolina this year. We spent the whole week enjoying the views, the cool weather and delicious food.
First we celebrated Husband's 30th Birthday!
His heath bar cake didn't hold up as well this year but it still tasted awesome.
Then we planned our hike.
I believe our hike was around 7 miles but I will have to clarify this with husband.
All the shelters were closed due to aggressive bear activity.
We didn't see any, thank God!
It was a pretty cold and wet day.
We couldn't see much until we got to the very top.
And then the views were spectacular.
This is the view from our cabin. No leaves on trees any more but no snow yet either.
The next day we did some clay shooting.
I was awesome.
Brittany was super worried. It was her first time.
Teresa had a great time!
Then we prepared Thanksgiving Dinner.
Tiny was a BIG helper!
And the boys relaxed.
The day before, Brittany and Husband spent hours cracking these pecans from Grandmom's tree in Florida.
When we had enough, Tiny and Mom went to work on the pecan pie.
It was the best pecan pie I've ever had. Seriously. It was from the Food Network magazine. But I think the fresh pecans are really what made it just right.
And then Husband thought it was his job to finish it.
We had lots of campfires.
These are the types of photos you get with an 8 year old boy.
Parker is getting very good with the BB gun.
Now on to Christmas!
