Somehow I managed to have all the food ready before noon – it was 11:15 actually. Talk about shocking! I think it is because we didn’t get a really big turkey this year (just 12 lbs) and I put it in at 7:30. So of course it was done a mere few hours later! Our guest wasn’t even over when the food was all done.
We had a great meal and after a short break started our Wii tournament. I thought it would be so fun, and it was – until Chris got beat by the friend we had over. And the friend doesn’t play all that often. So Chris threw in the towel early and they went to play xbox instead.
Either Alice or Jake won – I beat him at tennis, but she beat him as well then he beat her at bowling. I think we called it a tie and the fun quickly fizzed out. I think that’s when the turkey started hitting us.
I am thankful for a lot – to have my kids happy and healthy, that we are moving on to a new job, that my family is all doing so well. The past few months have been hard on me, on all of us, so remembering what we are thankful today was good.
And as long as we have leftovers for the next day or so, I’ll be happy with that. 🙂
