Saturday the kids had their Camp Olympia reunion party.
They were super excited to see some of their counselors from this summer, and it was at Dave and Busters and what kid doesn't love that?
They are all signed up for camp, JR will go for 3 weeks and Kyle and Reed for 2.
Saturday night all the girls I went to Vegas with came over for a girls' night. Cassidy is in town for Thanksgiving so it was a good excuse for us all to get together.
And as Kyle and Reed put it...for us all "to talk really loud".
Sunday after church we had Granny Sherry's birthday brunch. Her birthday was back in October but we had to cancel the original brunch because it was the morning after we had a flood, and I was down with the stomach virus.
This time there were no floods or sickness!
Jason and I left brunch and headed over to The Texans game.
(We changed clothes in the car.)
I'm now convinced I must be their good luck charm since they won again!
I got to go down on the sidelines during the game, but I didn't stay long.
I'm so short I couldn't see anything but the cheerleaders.
(It was military appreciation day.)
And now we start Jason's birthday and Thanksgiving week.
Even though Reed got left behind while the others went hunting, he had plenty of fun.
He had a sleepover with Cash Friday night, and we got donuts for breakfast Saturday morning.
Then MawMaw and PawPaw came to have lunch and took us to Reed's pick, the Chinese buffet.
We went to Hobby Lobby and bought a big canvas because I wanted Reed to draw a Christmas picture to replace the one I usually have up in my "art nook". He also got MawMaw to buy him a giant tub of rubber bands for his looming projects.
Here he is working on the canvas.
We went to see The Peanuts movie Saturday night.
And Sunday after church we went to The Cadillac Bar for brunch.
If you ask me, that's all way more fun than a silly hunting trip!
I can't really get started on football season without getting mad, saying mean things, and saying what should have been done differently.
So I'll just say that the most entertaining thing about loosing in the first round of playoffs was watching JR run the time clock....because he danced (like full-on routines) the whole entire time he was up there.
(He's the one on the second level, not the top.)
I didn't pay for the professional football pictures because I hated the baseball ones so much, so
I took my own.
Which, no matter what, look better than anything with a fake background.
