Thanksgiving Recap

I hope this post finds everyone sufficiently stuffed with scrumptious foods, with eyes that aren't too glazed over from parades and football and still in good moods despite spending the entire day with their extended families.

We celebrated Thanksgiving twice today, first at my parents' house and then at Ryan's parents' house. There's nothing like having turkey, dressing and all the fixings for both lunch and dinner. And let's not forget all those leftovers that will supply our lunches for the next few days. With all that turkey overload, it's no wonder I don't particularly like turkey any other time of the year. (I still have nightmares about the curried turkey dinners my mom used to make following Thanksgiving. Because of that, I refuse to eat any food with curry in it, which is sad because I hear Indian food is quite tasty.)

Like last year, I won't bore you with all the details of the day, but I've composed a little song to sum it up (to the tune of "The Twelve Days of Christmas"):

On my Thanksgiving holiday, my family gave to me:

12 fought-over toys,
11 expanding waistlines,
10 pounds of sales ads,
9 hours without internet,
8 thousand calories,
7 Christmas gift pitches,
6 rounds of "time-out",
5 rich desserts.....
4 poopy diapers,
3 half-deaf relatives,
2 kinds of dressing,
And a day full of blessings and love.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!!


  1. Good one! Mine would have to include, "One nap almost completely missed leading to a meltdown." But that doesn't really go with the song, does it?

  2. @ DH - We had that, too, but I couldn't figure out how to fit that in the song!

  3. Love this! You are so creative, Jana!
