In typical Shackelford fashion, we started off the week of Thanksgiving with Andrew having a stomach virus. I think I did 7 loads of laundry, used a can of Lysol and washed my hands in lots of bleach...okay not really on the bleach, but honestly, I felt like it. Andrew and I skipped church that morning and school on Monday. He was back to normal by Tuesday and thankfully, no one else got it.
I found him on the couch with Dash Sunday morning. He said leaning on Dash made him feel better. Bless him.
Tuesday night we got to ride on a hayride through Starry Nights. All the kids loved it. It was so nice.
We had dinner Wednesday night and managed to get a picture. Considering the sheer number of us, this was no small feat. But we did it. Hooray!
Thursday morning these two turkeys got up to run a four mile turkey trot. Jack did get his other sock and a shoe on before the race. Thankfully.
They met up with these turkeys and had a great time.
My crew came in for Thanksgiving. Everyone brought a little and then we had a huge feast. We ate and talked and ate and played games and I made a video of my grandmother making boiled custard. It was an epic Thanksgiving.
Friday, Memphis had their final home football game. Since we've been in Memphis, my grandmother gives us season tickets to the Memphis football games for Christmas. We just love going to the games together. Some of us really love the concession stand, but the game is fun too! This game was no exception. Memphis came back to win the game in the last 1:30 of the game. It was exciting!
