Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays.  I love getting together with my family (as crazy as they may be) and spending the day watching football, eating, playing games and of course some playful arguing.  Unfortunately we’ve already had little Thanksgiving stress.  We are eating during the Packer game so that my uncle can get to Best Buy by 4pm.  Still trying to work out a solution for this problem.  But hopefully before 12:30 today we can figure it out.  (The current solution is to eat in 15 min and go back to the game.  This doesn’t sit well with me.  Half the fun of Thanksgiving is sitting around and talking after you eat.)
Another one of the reasons I love Thanksgiving is because it’s the start of Christmas season.  I love this time of year.  Decorating the house, making cookies, holiday parties, looking at all the Christmas lights.  This year I will have even more excitement because I will be flying home for Christmas.

This year I have so much to be thankful for.  My new house and my new job.  My parents who help out a lot, and ask for so little in return.  My brother who works way too hard and way too much and his wife who puts up with him.  The rest of my family and friends.

I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving.  And remember, today’s calories don’t count!
