Happy Thanksgiving!

Every year my (Naomi's) family gets together with my mom's side of the family. We had a great time together this year. There was so much food, I don't think I even tried it all. But, we got to take the extra turkey home and we made a lot of turkey sandwiches. (Which made me very happy because I didn't get any last year.)

The newest addition to our family was Jacob (Jake). He was only a week old and he was passed around quite a bit. Jeremy and Cheryl (his parents) shared him very nicely!:)

After the Thanksgiving meal it is always tradition for the boys to play a little football. They played "young" boys against "old". Andrew actually made it onto the "young" team. Congratulations to the young guys for the victory!!! Go Honey!!! Woo Hoo!

Later that evening, Bethany, my cousin, dipped a whole bag of pretzels in chocolate (like we needed more sweets after the apple pie, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, and all the other dishes loaded with sugar :)) But, they were delicious. And they didn't last long.

What Thanksgiving would be complete without a rousing game of Settlers of Catan!

When I was younger, I would venture out to the malls for the Black Friday sales. But, lately I have been opting for more sleep. Plus, I can do all my shopping online now. Anyways, every year after shopping our family gets together one more time at O'Charley's for lunch. This is the 8th year we have done this and the hostess knows our family by name now.
And of course, Baby Jake was there.
We are so thankful for our friends and family and for all the blessings the Lord has given us.
We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your friends and family as well!

Flying With Dad

My dad is a pilot. Right now, he is a flight instructor in Roanoke, Va. The other weekend he took Andrew and I flying over Roanoke, Smith Mountain Lake and Leesville Lake.

It was all good until we started circling around Leesville Lake.

Andrew doesn't usually get motion sick, but he was sweating and white as a ghost. I thought he was going to... you know... all over my dad. I was feeling a little queasy myself. It's a shame because we could have flown over the Virginia Tech game as well, but our stomachs just couldn't take it.
Well, this is what happened after Andrew threw up all over my dad.
Just kidding... we landed fine (My dad is a great pilot!!!!) and Andrew didn't throw up.
