We have never hosted Thanksgiving before and traveling to people's houses for the holidays, you never get the leftovers you want. Because we want a lot of them. Some years have seen us making a new bird as soon as we got home, but that's a lot of work. BOY IS IT, as we now know after making whole damn meal.
So, anyway, that's why I found 2 breasts soaking in my tub on Thursday morning.
Cooper FINALLY let me wear his awesome turkey crown, and then about died laughing because I put it on backwards.
punch for the kids because why should the grown ups get all the fun drinks?
We put the apps out while my dad was on an ill-advised trip with all of the children to buy Nerf darts.
We also figured out where to set up the camera for a family shot. That Cooper made perfect.
The kids destroyed the basement with darts (THANKS, DAD), and I did some moderate clean up before we brought out the desserts. And some fat asshole ate a piece of chocolate pie before I could even take a pic. Oh wait THAT WAS ME.
In fact, this is her fancy pose:
If you look closely at the dessert pc, you will see that I put out my Christmas tree plates because dessert is technically AFTER THANKSGIVING dinner. I am so clever!
