Englund Gatlinburg Thanksgiving

With Christmas just two weeks from T.O.D.A.Y!!!! I wanted to squeeze a couple of late posts into my blog before things get even more busy. I kind of keep my blog as a little family photo album at times, so I don't want to leave too many gaps in our happenings!! :-)

This year for Thanksgiving, my extended met at a cabin in Gatlinburg!! I had never been to Gatlinburg before (with Branson just 2 hours away, we had never made the trip) and fell in LOVE!!! What a beautiful place!!Our "home" for a few days.

Out for a walk-- wonderful weather and beautiful scenery!!

Cookie decorating at the Christmas Store.

A favorite activity of some of the little people was looking over onto the crowd below. Notice grandma's grip. ;-)


Mark and adorable Addy.

One of the highlights of the trip was seeing a couple of bear cubs in a tree right beside the road. We stopped and took some pictures. Someone warned of the mother being close by and we made a quick retreat to the vehicle.

Brenda doin' a fine job of carvin' the ham!! :-)


More "lookin-over" time. When you see Jeff, ask him about yellin' out and then throwing a pillow over the edge-- uugghhh!!! MORE gray hair (and LOOTTTTS of laughs!!!)

Playing pool was the activity of choice for several hours that weekend by the guys.

So blessed to have four of the best sisters in the world!!!

What a wonderful week-- Can't wait to go back!!!
