Thanksgiving Recap/Weekend/Day to Remember

Happy Monday loves.
I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving weekend and that you ate just as much food {if not more} than I did! ;) I feel like this post is going to be a bit lengthy so I won't be offended if you don't stick around long enough to get to the bottom. {I lie...cause I always save the best for last.}

Let's begin shall we?

We had our entire family over for Thanksgiving this year, which was the first time since I can remember. There were 14 of us total....well 15 if you count Toby. Little man got some turkey and had his own baby turkey leg. It was a huge success and we all had so much fun, and surprisingly enough, I can't wait to get together with everyone again. 
Here are some pics from my sister's iphone-

I was not one of the many crazies to head out on Black Friday this year. I did it last year and that cured it for me...and Olivia....and Jake. I knew lots of people that started their shopping Thanksgiving night. I don't know about y'all but it seems to me like Thanksgiving is starting to lose it's meaning. It used to be a day spent relaxing with family and friends and now it's turning into another shopping day....isn't that what Friday is for?! That's my take on it anyway. Cyber Monday is my new bff. Speaking of, there are some sales calling my name today! 

Saturday I went to the Tech/UVA game in Charlottesville. Huge Rivalry! In Virginia, regardless of whatever college you decide to go to, you are brought up choosing one of those 2 schools to root for. I chose VT a long time ago :) History lesson over. Back to Saturday. It was my first time tailgating ever. Hard to believe that I made it 25 years without doing it. Anyway, we got to the stadium at in 6am....still dark out. I refused to come out of the truck until at least 9am...7am doesn't even come twice a day for me, ok? Needless to say, tailgating was tons of fun....not sure I wanna do it again for a while though. I had a little too much fun ;) If you didn't tune into the game, Tech not only beat UVA, we shut them out! As in 38-0. Whoop whoop! Next week we're heading to Charlotte for the ACC Championship game against Clemson. Go Hokies!!

 new friends :)

Logan Thomas aka QB/man of the game

#7 Marcus Davis 
Huge game for him...and we got to tailgate with his momma. Girlfriend is a riot!

Day to Remember-
Today is special for 2 reasons. 
Grandpapa would be 70 today. Instead of being here, he's celebrating his birthday with Grandmama in Heaven. I love you so much Grandpapa! 

Toby is 9 months today. I can't believe how fast the little stinker is growing! 
1st night home- 2 months old

8 months old- still cute as ever! :)

Phew! Told ya it was a read! 
How were y'alls weekends? Did you brave the crowds and end up going out on Black Friday?

I'm so glad you had a great Thanksgiving! I didn't go shopping on Black Friday but did manage to do a little online!

We had the Ironbowl here in Bama, Alabama vs. Auburn. It's the one day of the year every Alabama resident looks forward to, it's huge! It's also the one day that friends become frienemies and the winning team gets bragging rights for the entire year to follow! You choose sides for sure.
