Who had a good Thanksgiving??

I did!!

I've gone on Blogger like every day for the past week, but I never post anything. That's kinda sad. So I'm posting.

Thanksgiving was So. Much. Fun! The day before, in seminary, instead of having a real lesson we all named some things we are thankful for (regular things like curling irons and pizza, not gospel things- those are a given) until we filled the whole whiteboard. Then we had to take turn erasing one thing we thought we could live without from the board. It was meant to show how blessed we are and how much we could live without if we had to.

The problem is, person 1 erased something person 2 really liked, so to get even person 2 erased whatever person 1 wrote down. It was pretty funny but kinda stupid at the same time. At one point we had erased 'rain', but gum and hair accessories were still on the board.

Apparently when you live in the desert for long enough without rain, you get to thinking its not really necessary.

And then on Thanksgiving, I slept waaay in, played with my cousins and watched the parade, and then ALL the family came over and we feasted.

I forgot to save room for the pie. I always do. It's not a big deal though, because we have PIE NIGHT every year anyways. what is PIE NIGHT, you ask? Welllll..... you know how every year, I forget to save room for the pie? You get so full from all the food, you can only have that one little slice of pumpkin? Well, my friends, that is a waste of perfectly good pie. So in my family, we eat the night the night before, on Wednesday and have the leftovers on Thursday.

This year we couldn't have it on Wednesday, unfortunately, but its ok because we had it on Friday night instead. YAY FOR PIE NIGHT!!!!

Oh, and by the way, Elf is one of the bestest movies ever. Just so you know.

  2. I had a great Thanksgiving, too.

    I could definitely live without gum and probably without hair accessories, but not without rain (which is convenient, since I live in Oregon) and definitely not without pie. :)

    Happy belated Thanksgiving!

  3. I was just remembering pie night the other day as I was making my own pies on Thanksgiving. Your mom told me all about them. And the surprise bikes at home...that's pretty cool. You have some pretty good parents. You can tell your mom that for me. I like reading your posts, since your mom doesn't post it kind of keeps me updated. And one slow dance out of two offered seems pretty good to me...at least, better than I did usually at those stake dances:)

SERIOUSLY, people? What is the point of blogging if nobody comments? If you can't think of anything to say about the post, THEN JUST SAY "HI"!

Have a nice day.
