Sit five inches from the table, and eat till you touch

There’s one stereotypical married man problem I will probably never have.

“And what are you thankful for this year?”

“Another wonderful year with the little red haired girl.”

That’s right, my anniversary is just after thanksgiving (the 29th).  Four years ago two families were gathering at my soon to be mother in law’s house to celebrate the coming union and eat lots of delicious turkey. Most of the relatives that were coming to the wedding came to the meal so we had an unusually large turnout. Even my dog, Simon, was part of the festivities, gnawing a nice little tunnel into one of the pecan pies when someone wasn’t watching.

This year it’s our first thanksgiving as hosts. It’s a lot smaller than four years ago, but no less exciting. For us this time of year is about celebrating another year together and that is something we’re always thankful for.

And pie.

Have a lovely Thanksgiving. We’re going on vacation next week so I’ll see you all in December!
