Oh, Sleepy Deer!

We headed to Virginia this past weekend to take in a Va. Tech game and celebrate Thanksgiving a bit early, Hannam style! It was fun and quite delicious.

BUT the highlight was early Sunday morning, my manly man of a man headed out into the woods, it's the Thanksgiving tradition and about an hour later we heard a loud shot. A few minutes later Matt came through the door to confirm what we heard...Venison jerky was on the horizon!
We all headed down to check it out and Ollie kept saying, "hey sleepy deer, wake up sleepy deer." Then he asked Matt why the deer had a boo-boo, some stories are better left untold. Congratulations, Matty!
On a happier note this pilgrim and his family would like to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!

Yesterday we strapped on our boots for an adventure. Our little man truly enjoys to get up and out and do fun things, he'll say "We're ready for our Venture, Mommy, Daddy!"
We picked up some wiggly worms from the corner store.
And spent a few hours enjoying God's beautiful creation...on the water...soaking up the sun.
And catching some fish, 3 to be exact, a bass, a brim and a big catfish. Love me some "ventures" with my two favorite people!

It's that time of year again...time to load the curb of our street with all of our fresh fall leaves. This was this scene in our yard this afternoon. Ollie loved riding the leaf tarp!

Fun with friends...

Matt headed south to the OBX this past weekend with some of his guy friends. I had a really fun weekend even though Ollie and I missed him a ton. Friday night my two sweet best buds from college came to spend the night, Lacey and Carla. We had a fun time just catching up and doing things girls do including having a girly photo shoot on Saturday afternoon. Carla (black striped shirt) is preggers as well actually due about 4 weeks ahead of me with her first baby...a boy! I am thankful for such sweet friends!

This was tonight's dinner...Stromboli (to be pronounced with an Italian accent!)

It was inspired by this.

Then I found this. A much easier version.

And decided to make this delicious and oh so simple treat. We however Hannamfied the recipe did not use ground beef or peppers but used, mushrooms, ham, onions and pepperoni...YUM-O!

A Homecoming Halloween

We headed to Gardner-Webb this past weekend for a little family frolick for Halloween and Homecoming. Dr. Ollie was on call all day long!
We started our evening Friday night at one of our favorite "meat and 3" places in Boiling Springs...The Snack Shop. We haven't been back to school in about 6 was good for me to re-connect with one of my favorite dives...and devour this Greek Salad.
Remember this story from this summer, well this is the spot, by the creek where I said Yes!
We went all around town seeing the sights which included a McDonalds in the middle of town...crazy! Did a little tailgating, trick or treated here and there, played in the ball pit, saw the parade, fed some ducks, watched the marching band (not there when we went to school) and cheered our Runnin' Bulldogs on to a victory!
