I trust you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. 

We had a great time and Little Britches was quite the trooper.  We went to my parents house Wednesday night and spent the night.  We enjoyed the company of my mom, dad, sister, and grandmother.  We ate some great burgers and debated about how often my mom and her twin sister needed to be spanked when they were growing up.  The debate ended in a phone call to the twin sister.  And anytime the twins agree on something you've automatically lost the argument, so it was agreed that they did get spanked often, though they  may not have needed every spanking they got. 

Thursday morning we ate pumpkin bread, sausage balls, and fruit.  We hung out around the house and let Little Britches do some playing.

After all that playing she was worn out and took a little nap with her Bella.

Little Britches has two dogs at her house, but she had never seen the likes of Emily, my parent's great dane.  Emily had some stiches on her side she kept chewing on so she had to wear a shirt on Thanksgiving Day.  She was pretty much embarrassed about that situation.

Next we had a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving lunch.  My family doesn't do turkey and dressing at Thanksgiving.  We have it at Christmas, so for Thanksgiving we have whatever we want.  This year we had steak, salmon, fruit salad, squash casaroll, mac and cheese, homemade rolls, pecan pie, and pumpkin pie. YUMMY! 

After lunch we just hung out and enjoyed eachother's company while watching the dog show on TV. 


When it was time to say good bye we had to be granted permission to leave by the reindeer that was guarding the door. 

She said it was okay to go, so we changed Little Britches into her UT cheerleading outfit and headed to my in-laws for more eating and some football watching. 

All day Little Britches only really got about an hour and a half worth of napping in.  When a cousin came to my in laws to meet her around 6pm she was exhausted and hungry.  I thought for sure she would just cry, but she let the cousin hold her, take pictures with her, and love on her.  Little Britches even gave a little smile, but boy was she tired! 

I am so thankful for all the gifts God has given me and I had fun celelbrating God's goodness with family.
