Watching the 3rd Quarter of the Iron bowl (right now Bama is down 27 to 36). Happy to see Ole Miss defeat Mississippi State in the Egg Bowl earlier today and glad the Egg will be in Oxford for the year. T, The Dew and his sister Cassi were all at the game. Cassi was also there for the win over Alabama so I think she's the good luck charm. (OMG, as I'm typing Alabama just scored. It's now Auburn 36, Bama 34).
T had a lovely week with Pony Boy's family for Thanksgiving. On Saturday she competed in the Miss Amory pageant (and won!) and Sunday they headed to Johnny Frat Boy's house for the week. I haven't had a chance to really talk to her but I think they met up with some of his high school friends, she met almost all of his family, had lunch with his mom, and went shining and shot off some guns. T said she's dating Elmer Fudd.
We had a very nice Thanksgiving which also involved a little bit of snow from Wednesday. My cousin Alison and her husband Zach came over as well as two friends from work. I always have a hard time with timing the meal but this year everything turned out just right.
I had to go into the office for a bit on Friday and took KJ with me. We also helped with the holiday decorations and I took her for sushi for lunch. On our way home we stopped and did a little black Friday shopping. We made it home in time for KJ to go to the high school football game. Damascus is undefeated and is going to the Maryland state football championship this week (Thursday). Not sure if KJ can make it to the game as volleyball practice starts Tuesday.
Super duper proud of her . . . she made the 15/16 travel volleyball team. Over 70 girls tried out and since the team is also comprised of sophomores and juniors (depending on their birth date) and they only took 12 girls, we were really unsure how it was all going to play out. She has also said repeatedly that she is going to play lacrosse. Which just makes my heart happy.
OMG. Alabama just scored again. The score is now Bama 42, Auburn 36).
This morning KJ and I met our bestest friends for breakfast and had such a nice time. I think we sat in Panera for over 3 hours. AG was invited to cheer in the Philadelphia Thanksgiving Day parade so we met them just outside of Harrisburg while they were on their way back to Cincinnati. And we did a little shopping on our way home, too.
Cosmo got some stuff done today while we were gone. I think he was happy to have some peace and quiet in the house for a change! He got the outdoor Christmas decorations out of the garage and also re-covered our kitchen chairs and bar stools. It was time to change the black and white check and I found a gray and white link pattern I love, love, love! Tomorrow I'll finish putting Thanksgiving away and start on Christmas.
