We just returned from spending the holiday with Scott's family in Magnolia. We had a very nice thanksgiving. We got there late Wednesday night. Thursday we packed up all the food and took it out to their deer camp. They have a bunch of land about 30 minutes away where they go to hunt and his cousins met us there and we ate a big lunch. We stayed out there all day. They guys watched the Cowboys game in the afternoon and Scott's mom and I took a 2 hour nap. It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed being out in the woods.
A family friend comes each year from Florida to hunt for a week and he finally got a deer (a baby one I might add) that night. So I got to witness my first dead deer and he also proceeded to skin the deer right outside the patio doors. I'm pretty sure Dawson and I are scarred for life after that. I think we both had nightmares.
Scott's dad and his dad's brother have a family farm and his dad has been raising chickens for over 40 years but he is raising his very last batch of chickens so Scott went with him to photograph him in the chicken house with his last bunch of chickens.
Deer hunting, Catfish, BBQ, football, and pie..........I would say that's a very southern thanksgiving!
