And it turned out to be the most fun Thanksgiving, ever! Aside from amazing hospitality and food to die for, the day was remarkably laid-back and chill. They have a tradition that we might also implement in the future: everyone wears sweats. Um, is this not the best idea ever? I mean, why are we cramming ourselves into buttons and zippers, only to overeat hours later? Why did we not come up with a 'stretchy-waistband-only' rule?
Big Dave, Jason, and Brian fried the turkey in the backyard while the women tended the children. Scotty also took yesterday to sleep almost 3 hours in the afternoon, giving Momma something to be thankful for. He then proceeded to have a lovely disposition for the rest of evening, making my life 100x easier. Baby Sam slept and Carson the Toddler Tornado spent some quality time with his best girl, Dora. Evidence below.

And finally, mine:
Turkey freezing cold,
You are the best Momma ever to your little bear Scott!
This dinner would only be made better if George was here!
(Yes, that would be George, my ob/gyn. Courtney and I see the same doctor and joke all the time that we are going to attend each other's appointments and really freak him out. hahaha.)
Anyways, thank you Smith Family for such a great day!!!
