Great food, family and Horrible Football

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving day until 7pm. We had family and friends for Thanksgiving at our house, because who would want all of us at their house? We had turkey, sweet potatoes, stuffing, broccoli casserole, noodles, squash casserole, green bean casserole, green salad, fruit salad, cranberry sauce, gravy, rolls, pumpkin and pecan pies.

There were 18 humans in our house, 8 of them children, 2 under 5 months old. Of course we watched football and ate. The children played in the backyard and enjoyed each other and playing with their cousin, Aiden. That was the good part of the day.

Around 5pm Noel and I left to meet my old store manager to go the the Texas game. We were blessed to know someone that had tickets to the game. We even got to sit in actual seats and not in the stadium seating, but that ends the nice things to say about the game. Of course A&M got beat pretty bad. So Noel and I will hear numerous things this year from our tea sipper friends. If you do not understand the tradition, whatever team wins they get bragging rights until the next year. Noel and I have gotten bragging rights for the last two years, so we will hear quit a bit. No matter what Noel and I will never be a two percenters. The people that were rooting for t.u. were not rude or unsportsmanlike. So there is always next year when these two team meet and go at it again, but in KYLE FIELD. WHOOP!

We hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and they enjoyed and cherished the people they were with. When you think about it say a prayer for all the families that are separated this holiday season. Pray that this holiday season passes quickly and that their husbands/wives get to come home from Iraq and Afghanistan soon.
