Home for the Holidays

I’m a bit late writing about it, but I went home to Texas for Thanksgiving and it was wonderful.  I hadn’t been home since last Christmas and it was good to be home, to go to church, to see my family, to consume foods from several of the key Texas food groups, and to get some (slightly) warmer weather.

It was snowing as I left Ottawa, but I still managed to miss the really nice weather central Texas had the week before and the week after I was there.  The weather hovered around freezing and was grey and rainy for the first few days I was there.  It did get warmer in the last part of the week, but not quite warm enough to wear my flip flops.

I did take a couple of pictures while I was home, so here we go:
