Thanksgiving–it’s a wrap!


Over the River and through the woods we went.   Not to Grandma’s house first, but eventually we did go there too.  It was an eventful Thanksgiving for our family.  Have a seat, this might get long.

Prompt:  2.) Share a photo of what Thanksgiving looks like in your neck of the woods.

Ok, then here we go:

20101125_145019_6076  “Two Turkeys”  My brother, the turkey carvin’ crazy man – I think it was because our family has gotten so big, we needed two birds, and he was sick of it at this point, or maybe it was due to the fact that he had worked all night and carved turkeys all day – either way, he was lovin’ the job so much.

20101125_154610_6094 “The Future is so Bright”  Dad forgot his real glasses and had to spend the day in his prescription shades – all that meant was better mood lighting for his after dinner siesta. 

20101125_165752_6098 20101125_200134_6103“Had a Bad Day”  Curly, this is why we don’t wear glasses while sledding.  Glue and tape were not able to put Humpty together again.

20101125_185435_6101  “Another One Bites the Dust”  JP, meet tree.  Tree, meet JP.  Frenectomy completed without Novocain shots.  Bottom lip given pouty look without need for silicone injections. 

After this exciting afternoon, the kids were asleep before 8:30 and I was sitting like a zombie on Missi’s couch because unknown to me at that time, the little scratchy throat and sniffles I had begun to experience were about to blow up into a full-blown, teeth-aching, double-kleenex-blowing, head-pounding, chill-inducing cold – just in time to head to the germs-not-welcome farm.  Yeah for me.  Yeah for them.  Yeah for everyone.  Sudafed and  Nyquil, I adore you.

    Ok, so this doesn’t sound like a fun way to spend the holiday.

    Hope everyone is better soon.

    Don’t you just love how kids share their germs? 😉
