Murph same here for Thanksgiving, only we always went to my Grandparents cabin. Seemed every year we had snow and all the cousin's would go sledding most of the day and then my Aunt would set up a bingo game for us to play. Most of the prizes were candy bars, gum or life savers and we just thought that was the greatest.
Last night was Noah's teams last game. This is the first time I can actually say I'm glad this disaster of a season is over with. I'm not sure why we even went , it was cold, windy and pouring out. Noah still wasn't cleared by the trainer to play but I hope he learned a valuable lesson. Out of the handful of kids who came up with Noah from JV this year all of which spend most of the first couple of games on the sidelines, getting madder and madder, all but one kid who kept a positive attitude and knew ( just like I told Noah) that their time would come. Noah hit the field this year and actually had more playing time than the one boy with the good attitude. This kid didn't even hit the field until around game 4 and by that time Noah was out with the ankle injury. Last night they game the team awards out after the game. The boy with the positive attitude who never gave up, ended up winning the teams MVP award. I was so happy for him, the award usually will go to a senior.
Wow, I hope that wind has settled down by now. It was really pretty here today. The trees have turned and they are really lovely this year. Pam went up to northern MO and she said the trees were the prettiest she had seen in years.
I have really fond memories of Thanksgiving when I was little. There was always a huge crowd and always lots of food left over.
