Thankgiving

We have had a great Thanksgiving break. I took off work on Wednesday and made a Chocolate Sheet Cake and dressing for our Thanksgiving dinner with John's family that night. This worked out perfectly since we normally have to eat a little at each family gathering because they are usually on the same day. This year we had Thanksgiving dinner on Wednesday with John's brother's family, John's dad and his wife, sister-in-law's parents and her borther's wife and kids. It was great food and fellowship. Of course Zak (our 14 year old nephew) challenged his Uncle John to an Xbox Football game which turned into two games with Zak winning both times. Uncle John blamed the controller (John is a Playstation guy...this was an Xbox)! Whatever! I don't know anything about that, but I do know that John and Zak had a great time!

Thursday, my sister came over as we were swapping what we normally cook for Momma's Thanksgiving dinner. We ended up cooking both dishes here at our apartment (green bean casserole and hashbrown casserole). We ate lots of wonderful food at Momma's and had fun visiting with each other.

Friday, John and I woke up early and rented a rug doctor to help get up some stains on our carpet. Then we re-arranged the furniture and put up the Christmas decorations. I'll make a post of just the pictures of the decorations for BooMama's Christmas Bloggy Tour of Homes (see sidebar for more information). Of course we watched the GREATEST GAME OF THE RAZORBACK SEASON...We beat LSU (#1 team in the nation) by 2 points in 3 Overtimes! Oh....it was exciting here at the house. Then we went with Momma and Daddy to watch Little Rock Christian vs. Vilonia in their semi-final game. LRC won and will be playing in the Championship this Saturday. It was a packed game and we were sitting in the student section...they were not sitting. We only saw part of the game when they were to the right of the 50-yard line! IT WAS FREEZING!!! We were bundled up and thank goodness they had hot chocolate!

Today (Saturday) we slept in and have spent the day enjoying College football. It smells like snow outside and "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas..."

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who knows the "smell of snow"! Glad you had a great Thanksgiving!

Sounds like y'all had a good time. And in John's defense - controllers are different! On one - up is down and down is up while other controllers if you want to go up just push up. I have a nephew that loves to whoop on me until I get the controllers figured out and then it's game on! Yes, I'm a video geek - thanks for asking! :)

Btw, love the look!!

Hey, I have to come back and listen to the videos when I'm more awake--sounds like some good ones. Hope y'all are doing real good! Y'all take care! Robyn
