Thanksgiving and Go Cats!!!

Our Thanksgiving holiday began with Hunter's Pre-K Thanksgiving lunch! Granna and Brody came along with me to surprise Hunter! The food was delicious and it was great to spend some time with Hunter's teachers and friends.

This is the only picture I snapped at the lunch! Time flew while we were there and of course we had to socialize! His teacher got a nice picture of all us, so I'm looking forward to seeing it- maybe in a craft! :)

Each child was asked to bring a dessert and I decided to get a little creative thanks to Pinterest! I thought the turkey cookies turned out well considering this was the first time I had designed something with icing!

Hunter's placemat at the lunch! I love it! I plan to get it out every Thanksgiving!

The candle he made for me. They were used as decorations at our table!

These two have the sweetest relationship! He would move in with Granna if we would let him! I didn't get any pictures of our Thanksgiving-Brody was still on the mend and wanted me to hold him the whole time! This is the day we went back for leftovers-it was actually Thanksgiving! We had to celebrate a day early because of family.

Getting ready to make his gingerbread train! He is obsessed with trains, so you can imagine his excitement!

Working hard on the icing! It was pretty goopy and somehow he managed not to get any on his clothes!

Working so hard to get the icing out! The face of determination!

Thumbs up! They did a great job and it's still intact on our counter!

There's that precious face I love! Excuse the mess on his face, but this was the first time he had smiled in a few days!

Look at those front teeth! I could just eat him up! After we left, we drove by Walmart to see if anyone was in line for Black Thursday/Friday! It was 7:00 and Brett went inside and sure enough, lines were forming for certain things! We wanted to get an Xbox 360 and Kinect for Hunter for Christmas and I won't lie, Brett and I wanted it too! He stood in line for three hours and we got one!! I went out once he got home, but I didn't have much luck! Our next adventure would be Saturday morning!

I felt like I was a part of history! We went to Lexington with a group of friends to the Kentucky/Tennessee game! Kentucky beat Tennessee for the first time in 27 years!!! We had great seats- six rows behind the field goal! There were only two of us out of the bunch cheering for Kentucky!!!

Rushing the field!!! It was unbelievable!!! They had the field goals down in less than ten seconds!

What a great day! What a great feeling for the Seniors who were playing their last game!

Yes, I got on the field!!! I loved every minute of it and I'm so glad we were able to go!!

We put up our Christmas decorations on Sunday and we are ready for the holidays!! I realized I missed Tasty Tuesday so it will have to be Tasty Thursday this week! It's just so hard to get back into the swing of things after a holiday!
