Us girls were debating about going shopping early in the morning. But the whole family just ended up going later in the morning on Friday. We went to a model train museum on Saturday morning that is still in the process of being built. Dad's uncle knew the owner so we got a private tour. It is amazing the amount of detail that goes into the scenes.
We headed out of town Saturday after lunch and made it home around 1:30pm on Sunday. Mom promptly went to the store, bought food and we had our own Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday night complete with turkey, stuffing, mashed potatos and green bean cassarole. Didn't have time to make pies so we just had chocolate chip cookies for dessert.
The family with grandma. You can't tell in this picture but we look forward to welcoming a new member in the family in the middle of January!

Doggies and mommies.
Georgia's mom had a treat in her hand and it had our attention.I ate a little too much that night and didn't chew my food and I threw up all over Georgia's patio. So my dad took me home and I had to go to bed. It has been fun hanging out the past couple weekends. Mom and dad are excited to go up to Colorado with dad's family for Thanksgiving. I get to stay with Georgia.

We want to take a moment on Veterans Day to thank all those that have served or our serving our country. We know several people overseas now (including some neighbors and mom's good friend's husbands) and many more who have served in the past several years. We have even mourned with friends who have loved ones that have made the ultimate sacrafice.
Romans 13:4 "For he is God's servant to do you good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword for nothing. He is God's servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment to the wrongdoer." We are so grateful to live in a country that is free, especially free to worship. So thank you to those that have made that possible.

At one point we had a line of kids outside our house. When there was finally a break in kids we snuck off to church to help out at the fall festival.
Help, the tinman needs oil!
Two A&M yell leaders.
Our game to be in charge of was the balls in a bucket. Those ping pong balls went everywhere! Dad's costume was a little tight so when he had to pick up the balls he ripped some seams. So mom was stuck chasing the balls and with the ruby red high heels her feet were hurting. By the end of the night we made the kids get their own balls!
The squadron was decorated and kids could go to each flight room to get candy. Then were was a lot food and games for the kids.
