I sent an invitation last week and today was our third annual turkey day with our nephew and nieces (2013 & 2014). I am hoping they will want to continue the tradition into their twenties and thirties.
Sean had a hat on as we walked out the door and I said that wasn't fair...we were both going all the way with the bedhead as we got out early this morning for the pre-Thanksgiving trip to the grocery store. He decided to then continually mess up his hair more and more.
Eighteen years ago today we were out on a first date...so I guess our relationship is a legal adult now. Although I am guessing the aforementioned hair story already had you fully convinced about our maturity.
Honestly, our relationship can still resort to being like a tired, whiny three-year-old. I wish I could say it's all happiness all the time around here, but nothing is perfect. Which is not good when one of us can be a major perfectionist (hint: it's not the guy with the messy hair). If I were grading (and I just was a few minutes ago) I would give us an 88%.
However, eighteen years later, I can thankfully say we both always want to work harder towards that 100%. And I guess, when you think about it, that is what adults do.
So completely and totally excited that it is Thanksgiving break. I cannot wait to go grocery shopping and decorate and set the table and cook and watch the parade and decorate for Christmas and eat leftovers and just enjoy the entire upcoming week.
I have obsessively taken photos of every run-through for four years. Maybe because Mac used to want to make them as a kid and so every time I see him standing out on the field with one I want to make sure it's documented. Among the endless photos I snap, I caught this blurry one a few weeks ago.
"Hey, hey all the way!" is one of the chants from an enthusiastic grandpa we are usually sitting a few rows back from at the games this year. And I really hope he's right since we have a second round playoff game tonight. Last week I cried at the start of the game, afraid it would be our last...and I'll probably be crying at the start of tonight's game too...but I will be cheering at the end because we just have to win.
