A Trip to the Homeland…..Mississippi

I was missing my Paige, my ballerina baby, her husband Joseph, and my sweet Mama and Daddy.  I was missing them badly.  I needed to see them, needed to hug them, needed to talk to them, and needed to laugh with them.  So, Sir Streusel and I made a very quick to Mississippi to fulfill my need.  I am a Mississippi girl through and through.  There is nothing better than going home to my sweet Mama and Daddy’s house.  I walk in and instantly feel all is right in my life.  I also feel like the baby of the family again.  Mama and Daddy have cooked for us for years when we have visited.  Now, I take the meals for us to eat as well as meals for their freezer.  This trip was so last minute that sweet Mama and Daddy cooked a meal for us.  What a treat for me!!  I normally do the cooking wherever we go, so, to have a meal cooked for me……heaven!!

Sweet Mama and Daddy preparing our meal like I have seen them do  since I was a little girl.
Sir Streusel loves Sweet Mama's potato salad. It has mayonnaise in it.....I will never prepare Potato Salad.

This is a true Mississippi meal. Fried Pork chops, Turnip Greens, and Potato Salad. Nobody can cook a pot of greens like Sweet Mama.

Daddy telling one of his stories. I miss hearing those stories.
After we ate, Daddy took the girls outside. Look how handsome my Daddy is.

Sweet Mama and I attempted a 'selfie'. We can never get one. We are too busy laughing. This was the best one of about 25. We have issues with 'selfies'.

We told Sweet Mama and Daddy goodbye with lots of hugs and kisses.  I just miss them so much.  I love them.  Sir Streusel and I headed up the highway to Jackson, Mississippi to visit with our baby girl and her husband.  We met them at a Barbeque restaurant for dinner.  

This thing was across the street from the restaurant. I called him 'Willie'. Willie was huge....and creepy.

Look at my three loves. I just can't tell you how happy I was to be with my Ballerina Baby and her husband.

Afterwards, we enjoyed a little outside time. It was a beautiful evening. I think Ballerina Baby was happy to see her Mama and Daddy.

After having breakfast with these cuties the next morning, Sir Streusel and I took Ballerina Baby shopping and she loaded the back of the car, she always does.

We told them bye, it wasn’t easy.  I didn’t like it one bit.  I may have cried a little.  When we arrived back at our home, I did feel much better.  It is amazing what a little family time will do for the soul.  I wish my punks lived near us, but they don’t.  I don’t think I will ever get use to not having them near.  I miss them, I love them.

A note to my punks:  Come home when you can.  I know all three of you are so busy.  I remember those days well.  But remember you have a Mama in Pensacola that misses you greatly.  She even cries sometimes because she misses you so badly.  I have no shame.  I hope this made you feel so guilty that all of you are jumping in your cars and on airplanes coming to see me right now….I wish!  I will cook your favorite meals and wait on you hand and foot.  Just come home to Mama.

I love ya punks!!!
