Project 365 - week 48

 Week 48.

I hope ya'll have had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!  Mine has been full of food, family, food, fun, food, shopping, food, movies, food, games and more food!!!  It's been just about perfect!

Here's my week:
today the youth band played for our service.  I can't tell you what it does to my mama's heart to see my son worshiping like that.  For those that don't know Jared, he's playing the piano.

 Somehow today I hit my mouth and caused this blood blister.  I actually remember thinking "ouch, that hurts" when it happened but can not remember what happened......typical.

 At least once a year, I seem to have to forget that I can't put potato skins down the disposal.  It is usually when I am in a hurry......Steve loves this about me!  :)

Today was baking day....3 pies and a pound cake!

 Papa is happy to have his 2 best girls with him!!!

 made a big pot of Stew for dinner.
I love, LOVE having a full table!!!

 Steve started early frying the for a friend and one for us.
It comes out a perfect golden brown and is so juicy inside!!!

Of course, I have to bake one too because I love the dressing that is stuffed inside the turkey!!
 Me and my brother
 again, I LOVE a full table!!!
Being in the food coma we were, we obviously were not thinking straight and decided to hit Wowmart for the 10 o'clock black Friday sale.....
 ...words can not describe this experience.  ALL the checkout lines had checkers..that is a first at wowmart!!!  But it was seriously a mad house.....I did come out with some great deals though!

 We continued our craziness and got up at 7:00 for some black Friday shopping.  After 5 hours, I'd say that we made out pretty good!!!

 The grandparents took all the grandkids to the zoo and they had a great time!!
 My wonderful parents!!
We ended the day with pizza and a rousing game of scribs!!!
So fun!!!

 My family!!!
I am so grateful and blessed.

Well, I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!  I get to enjoy 2 more days with my family and then it's back to the grind......and I'm already we go!!!

Looks like some great family time !!!!

Your food looks delish too. I made three pies but for other people. Can you believe people pay me to make their pies. Love it !!!

You are a better woman than me...there is no way I wold ever go out on Black Friday but then I hate to shop on a normal day. I think black Friday would probably send me over the edge.

I have my PC back up and running so I will be back with a double dose of P365 tomorrow or maybe even later this evening!

I went to target and our outlet mall at midnight on black Friday. ridiculous!!
I'm sorry you hurt your lip, but the upside is you have beautiful skin!! I don't think I'd ever take a picture that close up of my face. :-/
I love the family picture. y'all look great!

i always love to see your family pictures...what a great group!
Looks like ya'll enjoyed each other's company so much!


I have loved all the Thanksgiving photos this week. I really loved your family group pic. Your Thanksgiving looked very much like mine. Games, food, family. Does it get any better than this?

Again, fun to 'see' your week's highlight--family, the greatest of all!
Comment: your mother is such a beautiful woman, helps me understand Abraham's Sara.
Also, I notice the bold colors of your walls now that I have had to choose colors for our house.
Have a great recovery Thanksgiving-week.

Sorry about the blood blister. Those are the worst, 'cause there's nothing you can do to get rid of them faster!

That food looks delicious, as always. I really want one of those pies!

I've never been out shopping on Black Friday, and that looks crazy!! I'm glad you some good deals though.

great pictures looks like you had a busy and fun turkey week

Lisa said...

Love seeing all the family together! Looks like a perfect week. I guess I didn't know Jared played piano...I thought he was just in the band. Wow...such crazy talented kids!!

Darla said...

Looks like a great time spent with family! Hope you are doing well, I never seem to have time to catch up on here.

The Bug said...

Great family pics - I'm so glad you had them with you.

LOL at the potato peels - that's something I would do. I can hear Mike ranting in my head now :)

We did a little shopping on Friday - but just stuff that I wanted for me - ha! My real Christmas shopping will most likely be accomplished online.

Karin said...

So fun seeing pictures of your family and your full table. I know you all had a blast together. :)

Angie said...

Loved the family pictuure! What a fun week; thanks for sharing it!

Your brother looks a little like Gary Sinise in that picture at the table. :)

Lori @ The Davidson Den said...

Aww. Your Thanksgiving weekend looks to have been filled with so much sweet family fun. And I commend you for braving the crazy crowds for the sales. It takes a special kind of person to handle such lunacy. ;) I know, because I've done it before!! ha ha

Kim said...

What a great week with family! You took some great photos too. I could dig right in and eat those pies :) And those turkeys... well, there are no words for the longing I felt. *sigh* No more turkeys for me until our next home ministries in two years. But last night Ivan did make some killer grilled chickens :)
