We had a pretty non-traditional Thanksgiving this year. Neil's parents, brother, sister, and us headed to Dallas to watch the Saints stomp the Cowboys. Bennett had the privilege of going with "Dammy" to Oneonta, AL to spend Thanksgiving with my side of the family. We left around lunch time on Wednesday. It was hard to leave a house that was still in boxes, but some how we found a way.
We arrived in Dallas and met Nelson Hunt (a distant cousin of the Lewis'). He used the extra ticket to the game. I was excited because while they had coffee, I went to Crate and Barrel!
We took a Saints garb family photo before the game. This is going on Richard and Janine's Christmas card.
Neil and me
Beau and Leigh drove over on Thanksgiving morning to go to the game with us. They love the games as much as we do.
Cowboys stadium was HUMONGOUS! We knew that our seats were going to be pretty high up, but not near as high as we were. We were literally 5 rows from the ceiling of the stadium. We all had vertigo as we walked up the 20 flights of stairs to get to our seats. With the Jumbo-trons, there is really not a bad seat in the place, though. Keith Urban was the half-time entertainment. They showed him and Nicole on the Jumbo-tron with their daughter.
Lindsey and Kyle Allen happened to be in the section right next to ours. No one ever came to the 2 seats in front of us so they moved near us!
Our half-time entertainment..Keith Urban.
We had a great time with family at the Saints game. The Saints won! It was a nail-biter, but they pulled it off. Thanks for everything Richard and Janine!
I borrowed these photos from my cousins facebook page. It looked like Bennett had a great time in Oneonta, Alabama with my side of the family. My grandfather (Grump) has a few sisters and brothers and they rent a big cabin on Highland Lake. My mom said there was so much food and tons of people.

Uncle Frank and Bennett had a great time!
We all got back home on Friday. It was the longest trip home from Dallas ever. LONGEST. TRIP. EVER. We left our hotel around 10:30 and headed to Allen, TX to go to the outlet mall. We were only about 20 minutes away from the mall. We used the Garmin, I-phone GPS, and numerous people to give us directions and they all failed miserably. We made it to the mall after 3 hours of driving around aimlessly. It was awful. We arrived at the mall and it was so crowded that we didn't really even buy anything. We headed to Central Market and then finally got on the road home. Central Market is awesome by the way. We need one in Shreveport!
On Saturday, we woke up and had a list a mile long to get done. We successfully unpacked almost every box. I am so glad because I cannot stand to have boxes every where. Kyle and Lindsey happened to be staying with his dad in Shreveport so they stopped by to see the house and then we went to Good Eats.
