Dobble, dobble, dobble

Like I know you did, the Pelt clan enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving Day.  My grandparents, Memaw and Papa, or “Emaw and Papa” as Saralynn calls them, came over in time to watch some of the parade, which was lots of fun!  They came armed with a turkey Saralynn had made at school the week before.  She took it to their house to show it off and left it, but it arrived home just in time for the big day.  As she says, “a turtey says dobble, dobble, dobble”.  So cute!  If I can figure out how to do it, I’ll have to put up a video.  We made napkin rings out of her handprint made to look like turkeys and made Indian hats and necklaces.  We’re still making necklaces.

The day after Thanksgiving was a day for Garrett and I to spend some much needed time with Saralynn.  She’s been a little under the weather, so we didn’t venture out shopping.  We instead went to the Country Store at Callaway Gardens for breakfast and then enjoyed a nice, relaxing day at home.

Today has been a day of mixed emotions.  Our beloved Dawgs got stung by a pack of Yellow Jackets, but the Crimson Tide rolled over some folks that can’t decide if they want to be eagles or tigers.  Overall, a good day.  Now, we set our eyes on a elephant/gator showdown next weekend.  That’s all I’ll say.  I’m not much on the trash talk- at least not until the game is over.

Please say a little prayer for my sweet baby.  She’s been fighting this nasty cough and spiking fever since Wednesday.  All seems well for a good bit of the day, and then all of a sudden, a 102.5 fever spikes.  We’re praying for a good night’s sleep.  Updates to come…

So much to be thankful for!  I’ve become a blog junkie and am enjoying reading all the different angles of joy that are offered by and for the Cottles.  Please continue to pray for a healthy pregnancy!  God is so faithful, in His own time.  Chad and Katie are some of the best friends Garrett and I have ever had, and we are absolutely overjoyed for them!  

It’s off to prepare for Sunday School.  I’m substitute teaching in the college/singles/young adult class.  Reports on that tomorrow, too…
