Thanksgiving Week

Yes, this is a little late...

Wednesday, we headed to Noah's hometown for Thanksgiving.  We were able to spend the rest of the weekend with a big chunk of his family!

Thursday, we loaded up for Uriah (yes, Uriah), Alabama...if you haven't heard of it, you're not the only one.  It's tiny!  We hadn't seen Noah's dad's side of the family for a long time.  We stuffed our faces and got to see a lot of Noah's cousins, aunts/uncles, and family I hadn't even met before...and we've been dating 6 years!

This is everyone that was there...a lot of kiddos!

It's three hours away from Noah's hometown, so between 6 hours on the road and several hours there, that was the full day.

Friday morning, for some reason completely unknown to me, I was wide awake at 4:30, even after that full day before.  Noah headed out to a few Black Friday sales with his dad, but I've mentioned it before and I'll say it again - as cheap frugal as I am, I don't do in-store Black Friday.  Like ever.  I just hate it - a good deal isn't worth fighting a million people and watching people acting like fools to me.

But since I was up so early, I figured I'd try a few online deals!  I put a few here that I got here - Babies R Us was my favorite...I got several things off the registry for at least half off!  We ventured out to the stores a little later in the day, and didn't go to the crazy ones.  We still found a few deals!

Saturday was a little bizarre for us.  Noah lives in a town very close to Hattiesburg, Mississippi, which is where the University of Southern Mississippi is.  Noah's dad had tickets to the suite at their football game Saturday, which you just don't pass up!  But it was during the Alabama/Auburn game.  So we sat in the suite at USM and watched the Alabama game.  I'm sure the other people there thought we were a little obnoxious, because I'll admit, I wasn't paying a dab of attention to the USM game. :)  Their suites are very nice though...we had a good time!

A few minutes after this picture was taken, the grandparents got to feel Emma Ramey kick for the first time! :)

So it was a busy week, but a fun one.  Now I need a break from my break! :)
