Remember the season 8 Friends Thanksgiving episode (Friends Thanksgivings were always the best, amiright?!) where Joey is eating potato chips...
Monica: Hey, what are you doing? You gotta save room, you've got almost an entire turkey to eat.
Joey: Let me explain to you how the human body works. I have to warm up my stomach first. Eating chips is like stretching.
Well I sorta feel like our weekend before Thanksgiving was like that. We got together to eat, drink, play and give thanks with some of those most dear to us in order to stretch our hearts and stomachs for the holiday to come. (Minus the brief stint of stomach bug that went through our house, which we were less than thankful for, but what are you gonna do?). Emmitt also got a haircut before we headed to Texas to celebrate Thanksgiving with Jaron's family, and he aged several years and is saying things like "appears" and "in fact" correctly all of the sudden. So that's cute and heartbreaking all at the same time. We got to see some of my cousins both before we went to TX and again in TX before we came home, because that's just how we are. And now some pictures. Of course.
