Thanksgiving involved a birthday, birthday pancakes, cooking, eating, playing, family, children, dogs, Wii dancing(after food, my favorite part. Sorry, family!), a tea party and lastly the dread of working on Black Friday., which wasn't too awful.

It was the first time in four years I've been with my family for Thanksgiving. Man, did I miss it!
I cooked half the day and ate the other half. I didn't eat the day. How clever you are! Never reached the limit that is demobilizing, which is an accomplishment on Thankgiving. And to keep a healthy appetite, we played Wii Just Dance, which is my new obsession.  Unfortunately, no photo documentation. Maybe not so unfortunate for me. I'm sure it would be a good laugh for you.

And about the outfit, can you guess my favorite part? That's right-the shoes. What did you think I would say? These shoes sent me into a state of pure bliss. The perfect blend of wild yet chic. These killer Leifsdottir babies were the steal of the year. The original $300 shoes were purchased for a mere $40! Are you gobsmacked? Indeed. This purchase began a new holiday tradition- a Thanksgiving present.

In closing, I was so grateful to share this holiday with my family again. Sometimes, we forget how wonderful life is. Aw, shucks, these folks are simple grand!
