and last, but not least, i am thankful for...

Sunday, November 28, 2010

Because we can play a game of Balderdash that has you possibly peeing your pants, just a little.  Especially when it's nearing midnight (and you already have the sleepy ha-ha's) so instead of trying to come up with elaborate definitions to actually win the game you come up with things like this: Hawser- the last name of a fictional doctor named Doogie but with a different spelling.  Maybe you had to be there.

Because my Mom hardly sat all weekend-- feeding us with bolognese sauce, baked oatmeal, sweet potato muffins, pork tenderloin, and more... being a hostess, as I now know, isn't all fun and games but she did it with a smile the whole time and, if I'm being completely honest, I was pretty lazy.  Thanks Mom, for everything.

Because they know me almost entirely and I know them almost entirely and we still love each other a lot.  

Because we didn't really get out of our pajamas all weekend long.  We mostly hibernated in my parent's living room watching TV, talking, and eating.  My idea of a perfect family weekend.

And I can't forget to mention my other sister, 
brother-in-law, and nephews who couldn't 
come this year.  We missed you guys.

  4. My favorite part of this pic, aside from the obvious loveliness of the family, is the TV commercial in the bottom left.

    If I call the number, I wonder what I'll be buying? :)

  5. Glad you had a great Thanksgiving!
    I helped make food this year, and it was a lot of fun. Although there's nothing wrong with letting go of that, especially when you're a mom of 4 kids!
    Nice family photo by the way :)
