Thankful for

 My Family Together at Thanksgiving 2019



It finally happened! All my siblings, along with all of the children and grandchildren, gathered together in Branson Missouri this year!

Hughes Family 2019 Thanksgiving

Yes this is a very unique occurance, as it has seldom happened.


My parents have both joined the heavenly angels. The one thing was so important to them was FAMILY.


Growing up in South Louisiana, family events were  of many forms. Whether is was fishing in the bayous, crawfish boil, or LSU sports, it was about family fun.


As adults, the 5 of us had various schedules and a complete gathering rarely happened. This year was different. 


One sister rented a log cabin in Branson for her entire family.


My other sister had her kids at her home in Branson.

One of my brothers lives here in Branson and the youngest brother drove in from Fayetteville, AR.


Of course Branson is a great place for a Thanksgiving family get togethers, as it is the top Christmas destination.


Silver Dollar City Chiristmas Lights




Some spent the day at Silver Dollar City and viewed the 6 million plus lights at night.


They went to the Dolly Parton Stampede for a food and fun show. 

Jason Pritchett, a rising country music star, was their server!


Mini golf, go-carts, and you name it were also enjoyed.


Some of us went to the Johnson Strings Christmas show. This is a very talented family of parents and 6 kids that play violin, piano and guitar. 

Of course, Black Friday shopping is happening also!

Family get togethers are easy here, as there is something for everyone of all ages and interests.


Family fun is my best memories.

Who remembers what gift they received for a birthday or Christmas?

 I remember something funny, or doing something together, or a great trip. 


A memorable Thanksgiving, full of thanks for our family all together, living and loving life.

Bob, it was so much fun as we had EVERYONE here. It also helps to live in an area where there are so many things to do for all ages.

Thanks Joan. With some of us living in Missouri, Arkansas and just 1 remaining in Louisiana, it can be tough. It was a week of fun for everyone. The 4 year old was crying as she didn't want to go home!

Thanks James! My next event is watching LSU beat Georgia in the SEC Championship game and then move on to the playoffs. It has been an incredible year of Tiger Football.

faye schubert - Your family photograph and story from 2019 left me with goosebumps. I long for the day I can be with my daughter, son/granddaughter and their family members. I'm very happy 2019 turned out so well for you and that you have this treasured memories of your beautiful family. Having a large family is such a blessing.
