This year, my Aunt Marsha hosted Thanksgiving in her home in my hometown in Iowa. We picked up Great Grandma Marci at 10:30 and headed out. The weather was nice, at least initially. Perfect for a turkey dinner.
The food was good, the clean up was long (as usual). By the time the kitchen was cleaned, the boys (my dad, Chris and my cousin Dave) had enjoyed a few too many drinks of some fancy scotch Dave brought out (He is a key account rep for a wine company, so he gets all the "good" stuff). The boys thought everything was funny.
Meanwhile, the girls (and Asher) played outside until the wind and cold blew into town, then they played throw the coins into the cans. Fun, huh?! They actually loved it. Marsha is so inventive.
Then we had dessert before it was time to head home. We were all tired with a turkey coma. It was a wonderful Thanksgiving shared with family.
When asked to name one thing we were thankful for, this is what everyone said.
Daddy: Family and health
