This past week we loaded up and drove to Duncan, Oklahoma to visit my side of the family! My sister and her husband live in Duncan - they both work for Halliburton.  Duncan is a perfect holiday place because it has a population of about 22,000.  It's small, quiet, and relaxing! My parents and Aunt and Uncle met up with us there for Thanksgiving Day and we FEASTED OUT! oh it was so good!!!

Sadly, we watched the Aggies lose to Texas in the last Thanksgiving Day football battle ever - but everything else was great about the trip! After Thanksgiving day we all drove 3 hours to the hunting lease which is outside of Childress, Texas.  We stayed one night and then drove back to Houston (10 hours from the lease). It was freezing cold - and it was wonderful!!
