Thanksgiving with Family

City of ChicagoImage via WikipediaI hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. We're spending this weekend with my parents, who moved too far away. Jeffrey got out of work early Wednesday so we could drive down, and it ended up taking way too long. I detest Chicago! Seriously. (Just ignore how pretty the city looks in those pictures there.) Is there any reason why traffic has to come to a complete standstill? There really needs to be a better way to go around that mess.

Anyway, we finally managed to get to Indiana and pick up my brother and his daughter and then headed down to Kentucky. Even that took longer than it should have, because the traffic was crazy. We'd be going along at 70mph, only to have to slam on the brakes because traffic would suddenly slow down to 40 or even come to a complete stop. Not fun at all. And for no reason we could ever see.

Thankfully we managed to make it to Mom & Dad's safely. It was late, but we all got to bed and got to sleep. Thanksgiving was good with all the family here - except for the brother who lives in Oregon, but he did call. We had lots of good food. I don't think anyone is going to need Hydroxycut hardcore, but there was certainly plenty. Practically everything had been raised on the farm here, so that was kind of neat. When they figure the average cost of a Thanksgiving dinner, I doubt they're figuring on the people who raise their own turkeys, sweet potatoes, salad greens, etc. So yummy!

I think we get leftovers for lunch today. I love leftovers.

Also, if you haven't taken the time to Give Thanks and Give a Drop, please do.
