Happy Thanksgiving!

We are so blessed. WE got to go to Brian's Uncle Jim and Aunt Darla's and do Thanksgiving John family style. I was great with that- we just had to bring the games, coldstone premade pie, and veggies and dip. I was sad that my mother in law, Kathy, was too sick to come. Got to play catch phrase with Brian's Grandpa and be taken down in Dutch Blitz by my brother in law Jason. Got to briefly hold my Niece Hannah. I say briefly because her darling 5.5 month self was the hit of the party. We were trying to coach her to crawl but she may have a little while before that takes place. I will post the family photo once someone emails it to me.

Tomorrow we are going to get up at 5 AM and go shopping but honestly Brian and I are so blessed and spoiled we really don't need anything and I haven't gotten my Christmas gift list figured out. Then I plan to be back in McMinnville early enough to start work at 8. Yes... I do get to work the day after thanksgiving and Even Saturday clinic this weekend but I figure it's a fine trade off to have 5 days in a row off at Christmas. Christmas we get to make the trek to visit my side of the family!
