we arrived and everything was cooking and bubbling and boiling and steaming....busy kitchen.
i got right to my job of mashed potatoes.
there was some chaos of cooking the turkey upside down...and then dropping it...but it all worked out.
like we knew it would.
we knew it mom....you always do a great job.
i brought my mom a gift.
you can go HERE to see pictures of it but i just got a picture of it on our car roof.
it was getting LOTS of attention on the drive.
everyone was smiling and pointing at our turkey.
her table was set so fancy....it was a lovely site.
we ate and talked and listened and ate some more.
my dad's side of the family is....quiet.
i used to think this was weird. it's nothing like a family on tv...tv families are always loud.
there is always something going on and things get loud.
but my family is not. (except for my own children of course) (oh yeah...and ME).
i am grateful for it now.
i am thankful for a quiet intellectual family who likes discuss everything(quietly)
from politics or history to art and music.
half the time i have no idea what they are talking about.
but i love to listen to my grandmother tell stories about having five children...or being a dr's daughter.
i am thankful.
i am going to sleep now and in 6.5 hours i will be shopping.
with messy bed head and no makeup and a starbucks in my hand.
i really hope you had a wonderful thanksgiving.
did you go black friday shopping? what did you get? :)
