A fun-filled Thanksgiving!

Ah, Thanksgiving. What is better than enjoying great food, family, and friends - all in one weekend? Here's a rundown...

Dinner was found at my humble abode this year. I learned that it is dangerous to seat my dad and brother at a table full of food and expect them to wait for the prayer. As I was taking this picture - I noticed the heaping mounds of (half-eaten) food upon their plates. They clearly could not be bothered with formalities such as saying "cheese" at my picture-taking attempts. Did they forget about my ruthless tendencies to post embarrassing photos? Like from
this post?







Note the cup. The beautiful, perfect cup.











We had so much fun! Seriously, few people (if any) are funnier than my two brothers. When they get together - I never know what will come out of their mouths. And I just laugh. Usually I'm blubbering and drooling because I'm laughing so hard. I blame them for headache today - my laughter hangover.

Then - guess what I did today?!!!

WOOT! I met more blogging friends!!

Binders, Pam, Kitchen Ditcher, Tink and Moi

I have had so much fun getting to know my friends and fellow bloggers. You are all such beautiful, lovely women and I am so happy to know you!

After lunch - I met my hubcap and we picked out this..















I will have to blog about our tree incident one of these days - which is why we now buy real trees. Forgive me MCF.

Tomorrow, Todd and I are supposed to head up to the Yellowstone area to pick up the girls.
















Usually - I jump all over the idea of a weekend jaunt up to that neck of the woods. Truly it is one of the most beautiful places on earth.

But all I really want to do this weekend is this:






Except I would be enjoying a bag of crazy bread instead.






Tonight - we're off to Twilight!

It's been a fabulous weekend and Thanksgiving and I'm reminded - it's only FRIDAY! I still have two more glorious weekend days. For that I am definitely thankful!

You and that cup...you crack me up.

I am so jealous of all this bloggy buddy get together stuff...boo hoo! We are considering TN and/or HI for vacation...do you think Dr. Hubby would get suspicious if I begged to go to Utah?! LOL!

Let us know how you like Twilight!

Laughter hangovers are the best kind! Looks like a fabulous day. I think I'm gonna have to get you a glitter cup for your beverages.

Hubcap??? Shall I refer to you as my "Tow package"? or "tailgate"? or "kickstand"?

Hmmmm???? I'm going to have to re-think being the nice guy anymore? Grrrrr...

Love Hubcap~!

I get a little piece of home! It's also fabulous to meet other members of the church. YAY! It looks like you had a wonderful Thanksgiving...and it sounds like your family is a lot of fun! I'll be back....but not in a creepy stalker sort of way lol
