This was the first Thanksgiving back in the US! I has been at least 4 years since my last one here. I remember at Berhan Language Institute all the foreign teachers getting together to have a wonderful Thanksgiving party with great food, picture mayhem, and great conversation! It was a party up on top of the roof and it was great :)
This Thanksgiving, I spent my turkey day at my sister-in-law's parents' house in Brigham City, UT! We drove up in the early afternoon and reached her parents' house. I had prepare two delightful quiche and brought them to the feast! It was great hanging out and talking with her family (some of them I'd not seen in 5 or 6 years), playing with the kids, and literally stuffing my face. Talk about eat your heart out! It was great.
The clatter of the football game in the background and the glassy-eyed guys staring into the game, the smell of hot and fresh food, the two little dogs playing around and almost killing each other, the screams of delightful playing from the kids running around inside and outside, the peace of being with family, and my full stomach was such a delight.
It feel picked up my mood and it was a great Thanksgiving! YUM! It was more than I could have asked for.
I am excited for this holiday season and being around family.
I am thrilled :)
Hope your Thanksgiving was as delightful! I give thanks to you, my friends!
