This year we have been blessed with Michael having a job (which is saying at lot for the oil industry at the moment). However with the growth of his company over the last few months there has been growth in his responsibilities. Michael has been traveling, but always manages at least one day a week home with us. Gabby and I miss him very much because some days when he is home he arrives here after Gabby is asleep and before she awakes.

At 11;00 p.m. the night before Thanksgiving the rig called an informed us that Michael would not have to be there until the following morning, hooray! Since it was already so late we couldn't make it to Dallas, but Michael insisted Gabby be with cousins on Thanksgiving so she wouldn't be disappointed.
The next morning we drove up in Gigi's driveway and surprised the family (and ourselves) with a day trip to Lake Charles. It was a very peaceful and relaxing visit. Gabby enjoyed playing with Blakeleigh, Katie, and Carly. My cousin Ryan announced he and his girlfriend were engaged! We also celebrated my godfather, Uncle Jay's birthday. All and all we had a fabulous impromptu Thanksgiving celebration, birthday celebration, and engagement celebration rolled into one!
