We decided to travel to Springfield a little early for Thanksgiving because my oldest nephew, Christopher D. Rogers, got married on Saturday, November 19, 2011. He married Sonya Jones who is a teacher. They have dated for over three years and I am so happy and at peace about it. Each one of them is so lucky to have the other one.
We have three Rottweilers which I refuse to board unless it is a matter of life and death, and this wasn't, so the way we figured out to make the trip was to drive our small RV camper and our pickup. That way we could transport all three of them and also we have a place to help manage them while we stay at Mom's in her backyard.
Since we drove both vehicles, we decided to stay in Springfield through Thanksgiving. We have a very large family and it is always a large gathering. I didn't bring my jewelry makin's so won't have anything new until after Thanksgiving but my shop is chocked full of goodies for your Christmas shopping.
