Thanksgiving Dinner take 2!!

Saturday night we went to my sisters for ANOTHER Thanksgiving dinner and I have to say I thought everything tasted better as I did not have to cook...All I brought was our NEW Drink:)
Lindsey brought her new boyfriend and we all liked him a lot. He seemed really nice and we all loved his GA accent. I sat at the KIDS table and have to say I enjoyed myself as Kaitlin, Nicholas and Tyler were great company and you can get by with a little more there. I had more fun making fun of our GRAVY boat which was LITTLE!!!
We took a few pictures of the 4 grandkids together and I ordered a sweatshirt for my dad for Christmas from the kids with the on it. He is SO HARD to buy for and he wants NOTHING.
Saturday was defiantly a hard dinner without my mom. We all knew she was missing and we had a toast with Ice Wine (thanks Sadie) to her!

Thanksgiving Dinner

I had Thanksgiving dinner at my house as my sister and I trade off each year for Thanksgiving and Christmas. She is actually having one at her house today as my neice and her "friend" are in from Altanta and both of my sisters girls went to their dads.
So for Thanksgiving we had the Jarrards, Conroys my dad and my sister. Hank deep fried a turkey and it was GOOD!!
I made a NEW drink and it was 1 1/2 ounces of Watermelon Vodka, 1/2 ounce of Triple Sec and 3 ounces of Cranberry Juice:) Guess what I am taking to my sisters today!!!

Tyler the Pioneer

Tyler's class went to Simmons 1 room school house today. They had to dress up as pioneers and spent the whole day acting and learning like pioneer kids. He LOVED it:)

1 Wish

Tyler told me today that I know if you had 1 wish you would wish for Grandma to come back to life. I just smiled at him and Hank who it not paying 1 bit of attention says I think she would wish for a new computer (WRONG HANK) and he says to Tyler what would you wish for...Tyler says the same as Mom. I cried and I am sure Hank who STILL is not paying attention thinks Tyler wants a new computer too.
This is so much harder then I ever thought it would be.

My Floor

Hank layed the Floor in the familyroom Saturday AND can I say I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!
I bought the rug this week and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it too:)
Nicholas had a swim meet this weekend so I went there and timed with DENISE and all I can say is we had pretty darn much FUN. Saturday she brought the smoothies and I brought them on Sunday. Our new motto is "Friends who Smoothie together STAY together"!!
Friday night I had a "moms night out" with Denise, Joanne, Mary and Barb and it was another FUN night.
So it was a GOOD WEEKEND at my house!!!

Happy Halloween a day late. We had a beautiful night for Halloween here. Perfect temp. NO rain and lots of kids were out:) I actually think it was the most we have had in a while. Not that I think that MOST of them live by us. When a car is following LAZY parent is driving behind a kid odds are they do not live by you.
Nicholas "walked" around with friends but did not trick or treat and Tyler went as a Zombie. (FYI when the mom does not remember to buy Halloween make up MARY KAY works GREAT...goes on better and can make a 10 year old boy look half dead:)
Tyler came home..emptied his candy and said "can you believe someone gave me RAISINS. I had to run to the store to buy 300 hot dog buns for the FALL FESTIVAL and told him the next big kid that comes to the door that has a car following him RE- TREAT him with the raisins:)
Hope you had a Happy Halloween also!!
The Fall Festival and Chili Dinner is TOMORROW night. I decided this week that I am not messing with the popcorn popper at school so I am actually going to pop popcorn at home and fill plastic hands and sell them at the bake sale. It is a PAIN to clean the popper..we always BURN a few batches and it is another worker we need so we are not using it. I will be SO GLAD when this is over. I have to say I am PRETTY *amn organized and as of now have ALL my volunteers and even a few extra. Now they are need to show up and remember to bring there donations in of Chili, Bake Sale items, Soda and Water!!!
