Thanksgiving week, part 1

Cooper, Katie and I left town for Thanksgiving break. After visiting my mom in Temple and taking my sister Melane and nieces Brooke and Molli to Austin, we continued south to San Antonio to spend a couple of days with Melissa and her family.

The list of firsts without Steve continues, and none of them get any easier. This was our first visit to Melissa's since Steve passed away. Our first road trip. Our first visit with my mom.

We are blessed to be surrounded every moment by lots of people who love us and care for us.
