Thanks, As In Giving Some

I misplaced a four day weekend. Have you seen it?

The last four days were a blur of thankfulness, activity and food. We were all over the place, so much so that I snapped something like 500 pictures. Specifically, we:

- Gave thanks
- Ate too much
- Probably drank too much beer
- Visited Arlington Cemetery
- Ate
- Walked the length and width of Roosevelt Island
- Watched all three Narnia movies
- Ate some more
- Came up with our Christmas lists
- Went ice skating
- Had a few play dates
- Got Beyblades and formed a Beyblade Fight Club (which I just broke the first rule of)
- Yeah, ate
- Started watching American Horror Story; freaked out a little

Perhaps my favorite part was being with my family. All of it. We spent several wonderful hours together for Thanksgiving then met the next day to walk through Arlington Cemetery. We visited my Uncle Dick, Aunt Mary Louise, Beth's Grandpa Jack and Grandma Pearl. I can't think of a better expression of thanks or anything that better defines what Thanksgiving is all about.

I hope your Thanksgivings were all equally wonderful and that your reentry into the Monday-morning real world is painless. I suspect mine won't be but, well, they never are.

That should totally be on your Christmas cards.

I'm so glad you and yours had a Happy Thanksgiving! Love Mia's curls, and O's bow tie? Rocks. Good job, Dad with the help of Amazon!
