Alyssa got a princess bike and Trent got an electric scooter! They were so excited. I love to see the look on their faces. We spend a nice morning at home before going to my parents house.

After the program he went and spent the day with Nanny and Papa and I went shopping. Got a new hairdo. I will post that later. I am still trying to get used to it. Brett says that I look like Janet from Three Company. He keeps singing "Come and Knock On My Door."
I wanted to note that this day has been hard for me. Trent went to the Georgia Tech Basketball game without either Brett or I. He is definitely a big boy now. He was so excited about going with Cousin Jeff all by himself. I don't think I am ready for this.........

The children are color coded to a sibling. (Except for Jackson whose has one sister on his back) From the back row: Korey, Kasey, Trent, Alyssa, AnnaCarroll. Front Row: Katie, Jackson, Bryce and Dylan.
It's weird that none of the kids look alike. (Not even the siblings, except for the cute red heads)
Here are some others.....

This In The Past picture is of the 11th grade. Every year a group of us would make a trip to Lenox Square for the lighting of the Christmas tree. Check out the girls bright colored lip stick!
Eric, Katie, Mike, Jon, Heather, Miranda and me.
** on a side note...... Notice in this picture that there are 3 people to one side of the Waffle House seat. I can't imagine 3 adults in the seat now. Next time you are in the Waffle House take note.

Brett's Aunt Gwinetta is building a house in the mountains. So, since all of the cousin would be in town for Thanksgiving, we decided to all take a trip to Blairsville. We had so much fun. It was just like old times. Here are some pictures of the amazing house.
Trent, Bryce, Korey, Jackson, Dylan and Kasey
Here is a great picture of Brett's parents, Pam and Ealy
On the way home when I looked in the backseat I was greeted with this......

For Thanksgiving Ms. Lyons has given each student an Indian Name. This week Trent is known as Golden Feather. He was so excited about is name. Here is the back ground.
Once an Indian receives a feather he must take care of it, and many will hang it up in their homes. It is disrespectful to hide it away in a drawer or a closet. An Indian will be given a feather to hold on to or to wear, and if they hold it they must put it out for everyone to see. This will be a constant reminder of how to behave. An eagle feather is a lot like the American flag, it must be handled with care and can never be dropped on the ground.
The only way an Indian can actually get one of these feathers is by doing a brave deed, like fighting off a bear or going up against the enemy. They were never allowed to wear the feather until they went in front of their tribal court and retold the story of their victory. It was at this time that they were allowed to put it in their headpiece. Only chieftains, warriors, and braves have ever been awarded this special gift. The next time you see eagle feathers in a headdress, think about how they were earned.
When we were discussing Indians over the weekend I explained to Trent that my side of the family had alot of Indian in them called Cherokees. His faced was totally puzzled. So I further explained that his Papa's dad (my papa) -(his great-papa) had Indian blood in him. He said, "No mom, papa was a pirate." What? Brett and I looked at each other. He said, "You know, mom Papa was a pirate on that ship." Then it hit me. "NO silly boy, your papa was a sailor on a Navy ship, not a pirate." We laughed and laughed.

On another note....... I got to start and actually finished some crafts that I have been wanting to do for the holidays. I needed some fall decorations. I feel sorry for fall/thanksgiving. I feel that it gets the shaft. (Especially now a days) Seems like the stores just go from Halloween to Christmas and Thanksgiving gets left out. So I made a fall wreath......
