I slept in nice and late which was very nice. It is great when you do not have to set an alarm clock and I looking forward to retirement when I can finally do that for good! But until then I will enjoy these few days here and there when I wake when I dang well please.
Jasmine started working on dinner stuff around 10 after I finished up breakfast. I love cooking breakfast for the family. So after we ate, George was back on the couch nursing a cold and Gillian and I hung out to help Jasmine or stay out of her way.
At about 10:30 I hear a major gasp in the kitchen and Jasmine says, "Of course this would happen on Thanksgiving!" I walk into the kitchen and see that the sink is clogged. This would be the bad part.
I tweeted about the whole thing and lo and behold I get a phone call from my future Brother in law. He says he is on the way to help.
By 1pm my sink was clear and the food prep was back in full effect. THANK YOU STEVE!!! I think my sister picked a keeper right?
So now to the great part. The food.
Jasmine made the bacon wrapped goodness upside down which made for very juicy white meat!
Even Teddy had his own Thanksgiving meal.
And boy did he enjoy that.
As did we.
You may wonder "who the heck took that picture" well my friend Matt was stuck at work late and a nasty traffic accident made it impossible to make it to his families dinner. Instead of being home alone, we invited him over which was awesome because he brought Ranch dressing which we were out of.
As we went around the table saying grace, my prayer included my thanks for my friends and how much they are a part of my family (Just like MATT!) and all of you were included. The online community I care so much for.
After dinner we played Wii Music which was a blast and watched Wall-E.
How was your holiday and have you ever had a bad situation like our plumbing issue on Thanksgiving?
