As is tradition here at Dress-up and Diaper Changes, I thought I'd sum up our Thanksgiving with a little song. (You can see last year's post here and the one from 2008 here.)
To the tune of "The Twelve Days of Christmas":
On my Thanksgiving Holiday, my family gave to me...
...12 forced family photos
...11 hours of TV
...10 pleas to share
...9 hours of chit-chat
...8 broken toys
...7 kids running wild
...6 pounds of sweet potatoes
... a 5 day old nephew.........
...4 rounds of vaccine-related diarrhea
...3 rounds of liquid tylenol
...2 bowls of gumbo
... and a whole lot of smiles and hugs.
(To explain a few of these - Ryan's niece brought her 5 day old baby for everyone to snuggle - fun! Liam had his 4 year check-up yesterday and got five vaccines; poor guy has been running a fever and dealing with some stomach "issues." And since we spent lunch with my family and dinner with Ryan's family, we decided to have seafood gumbo with my parents rather than face two full Thanksgiving meals in a row.)
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
