Oh Thanksgiving, how good you were to me yet again. I’ve only had one sub-par Thanksgiving, but that was because I had my wisdom teeth removed the day before. God forbid I have to miss a single day of super important high school so that I could enjoy some ham and dinner rolls like the rest of America. Anyway, yesterday, I enjoyed my ham and rolls.
The day started early to finish the cooking.
I ate what macaroni wouldn’t fit in the bowl for breakfast. It was quite delicious. After breakfast, we packed up our dishes and headed out into the boonies to help prepare lunch.
Then at long last, after hours slaving over a hot stove, it was finally time to dig in.
I ate some of that pie. It’s true. I don’t even feel bad about it. It was so good. I also think this one below with the whip cream on a sugar cookie might be related to me. We definitely share some sugar-coated genetic code.
After lunch, my sister took a nap.
And I went outside to hang out with the kids and “explore.”
Someone turned five which apparently is the age at which you need to start exercising your Second Amendment rights.
I think he thought he had a rocket launcher or something. Thankfully, grandpa came out and helped the little fella out.
Mamaw supervised and nobody got their eye shot out. Myth busted.
He requested his weapon again when he discovered Mamaw’s all-season creepy passenger in her car. Someone was very relieved to realize that this was not a real pumpkin man and that he was stuffed with newspaper and not “scary killer guts.” I don’t know what those are, but they sound bad.
Sari finally woke up and my mom made us take pictures out by the tank. Yeehaw y’all. Sadly it was quite windy, so it took a few tries.
And then we played cards for endless hours while a small fry came in and terrorized us with plastic weaponry.
And now I’m still so full I could just lay here and never move again. I never want to eat again. I swear. I’m done forever. Unfortunately and tragically, I can’t lay here all day like slug. I have a big day of shopping at a giant craft show (please just slit my throat and leave me here to bleed out in peace) and a date to see the last Twilight movie (again, just let me die please) with this crazy teenager.
The excitement is palpable.
