Kody and I had a great Thanksgiving week. Last Tuesday I ventured to Springfield about 2:30 with Courtney, Jen, and Tara. We went to look for a new Sunday School study and to get a little eating and shopping in! We found Adam Hamilton's The Journey. I'm really glad we found this, it's a Christmas study and we weren't planning to get something like that but it was the perfect fit. And crazy enough, it goes right along with our pastor's sermons! They shopped until they dropped and I dropped about 8:30! I hit a wall at Target and was exhausted. We didn't leave Springfield until 10....and it's an hour and 45 minute drive home! Needless to say I was exhausted on Wednesday. Exhausted.
Wednesday we had food at work and besides being exhausted I ate way too much. I then didn't eat for 26 hours because I just didn't feel the need because Thanksgiving was right around the corner!
We made deviled eggs, 24 hour salad, and yum yum corn for Thanksgiving. We went to my grandparent's house (Mama & Nandad) and had a great lunch there. It was a special day, it was Mama's 76th Birthday. I was lame and didn't get any pictures besides this one.
The whole Prewett clan was together. We didn't make it to Jackson this year. It's tough because Kody works on Friday. We will be there for Christmas though! My favorite thing is either my 24 hour salad, Mom's dressing, or my mom's chocolate chess pie. YUM!!! Afterwards we went by my Mom's dad's house and visited with them before heading back home. I'm so thankful for my family, especially my grandparents. My Nandad said some really sweet things about Mama before the prayer at lunch. She is a Saint!
Kody did homework, but did get out our Christmas tree for me. I wanted to get it ready to decorate on Friday but we had a little light issue. Kody ended up fixing it Friday night late. Thank goodness!! The tree is only 2 years old. GRRR. Anyways, I think it's beautiful and I love the mesh!
My mother-in-law Teresa and her mom are here to visit now. We love having them here and we're lucky that Teresa & John (FIL) will be back to stay this weekend. They'll leave for Jackson tomorrow and we'll miss them! We took Christmas pictures for Grandma's Christmas cards last night. I thought they turned out really cute.
I hope y'all had a great Thanksgiving. What a blessing it was to spend time with family. Christmas will be here before we know it, are you ready? I'm getting there. Most of my gifts are bought.
