Woooweee.....Thanksgiving, Black Friday and...Cats?

So acting on the realization that I have not posted for the last five days I decided that I should update besides by "Not Me Monday" post. I was putting this off because I have yet to get my pictures from Thanksgiving uploaded but oh well I can do a picture post when I do get them up.

So backing up I will start with Thanksgiving. It was awesome. We watch some of the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade on TV before we started getting ready to go to Meal #1. I got family pictures of P.J., Xay and I....which I do have on the computer! Woot! Here you go:


This is the one that is gracing our Christmas Cards this year.
 
Mommy and Daddy moments....none of which are that great of Xay.
 
This one was taken when my mom said she could get him to take a better picture then PJ and I and she did get a cute one I will admit. 
 
This was a father son moment and I was totally left out except for the fact I was holding him.

Anyways, after we took the pictures it was off to Diane and Jack's (PJ's aunt and uncle....Xay's grandma and papaw Jack). PJ's Uncle Ralph and Charlie had their families there. So it was a rather large meal and oh my gosh the ham and turkey was to die for! Though this was probably the start of our colds (Xay and I).

So after this meal we came home and around 6pm it was time for Meal #2 and this time it was moms cooking. We had Cindy, Rob, Mom, Dad, PJ, Xay, and Me. It wasn't as tasty (mom doesn't use spices and whatnot) but it was still good. I swear I gained 5lbs. Haha

So overall Thanksgiving was awesome. Black Friday came around and we were at Wal-Mart here in Jackson at 4pm. Mind you the laptops (the $198) were gone way before that. The store opened it's doors about 8pm and while they weren't allowed to SELL the laptops numbers were given out and there was only 17 of them so between 12am and 3am they were all gone. My dad was not happy because he had planned to get one. Maybe next year right? haha. Anyways I got a all-in-one printer for $25, it copies, prints and scans. I also got Christmas presents for Lexie and Ashley, part one of Anya's, moms, and the rest of PJ's Christmas presents. That leaves me having to get the rest of Anya's presents, Aunt Carol's present, and also dads. I think I am going to give my Aunt an I.O.U. and make her a picture book of Xay. I am not sure though.

Anyways by Black Friday Xay and I were sick. Mind you I left him at home with his dad while I went shopping but still we were both sick. He has a cold...stuffy nose, slight cough, and was running a fever of 99.6 but he doesn't have that at the moment. Me on the other hand I have a full blown sinus infection and let me tell you I feel like crap! I was lucky to not get one while I was pregnant but yeah no such luck now. I never really get a sinus headaches but now oh yeah had one all day.

Anyways the weekend was good nothing exciting happened. Sunday came around and we have yet another Church baby on the way! Woot....it's like all the people I grew up with as a kid is having babies and so I am like wow....my kid will know the kids of the people I knew when growing up. That is just to cool...or weird....it's like a baby boom around here for real!

Anyways I went to work today...hated it. Not because it sucks but because I don't want to do stuff when I am sick. Anyways I did get my college books ordered for next semester though. As I am sure you read in my not me post I rescued a cat. The girls that work at the college found it and put it in a box I took one look at it called my mom and she sent dad to pick it up. I think someone either kicked it or hit it with a car. Either way its back leg/hip is messed up. It was freezing, wet, hungry, thirsty and on the brink of death. It is doing a little better it cries so pitifully and you can't help but feel sorry for it. It is about the size as Chitty Chitty.

Whelp my stomach is telling me it must eat!
