Thanksgiving 2008

Sorry it has been a while since my last post.... I have a new schedule at work and it has been hard getting used to. We have had lots going on though .....

One of my best friends in NC (Dawn) gave us a "Drinks and Dessert with the Viras" was super fun. This picture was from the party.

There is a huge bulletin board at the hospital that all the departments take turns decorating. It was ultrasounds turn.....and after it stayed undecorated for 2 weeks, I finally gave in and just did it. It never really got finished ... but I think it turned out okay.

I had to work 7-7 on Thanksgiving...but that didnt stop us from having a traditional turkey dinner.
Joey cooked all day and made a huge dinner. By the time I got home around 7:30, everything was ready and on the table! We had a great Thanksgiving dinner with his family....Joey did such a great job and I was totally impressed.

We realized we don't have a gravy spoon....but no big deal....we used a measuring spoon!!

(Yes....we used our christmas china!)

Are you impressed??? This is what it looked like when I walked in the door...

We got our Christmas tree!!!!!!!!!!!! We decorated it tonight!
Hope everyone is doing well and having a fabulous holiday season...drop us a line sometime soon.
P.S. We are counting down the days until Melissa and Stew come stay with us. 12 days.....I CAN'T WAIT!!!!

Good times

Joey's father and step-mother came in town this weekend. We enjoyed spending Sat. with them as well as Joey's sister and her family. We got up early Sat morning to see his neice and nephews play was so much reminded me of the years I played with the YMCA. Cannada and I were always on the same team....(Lauren, were'nt we always the first pres purple people eaters or something?? )Donnie B and my dad were our coaches every year.
Sat night we went on a haunted hay ride. It was so much fun!

So...we thought this guy was fake....Joeys family was standing around while Tina took our picture. Right as we were walking off...he jumped at us and scared us to death! This was after the hayride so we were already spooked. He got all of us soooo good!

We have been looking for a china cabinet for a few weeks now... we finally found one last week and it was delivered on Sat.

It was our first big purchase! We are so excited and LOVE it! As Joey said, 'we own a china cabinet...we are officially adults'
