Gobble, gobble, gobble...stuffed, stuffed, stuffed

We spent Thanksgiving Day at Gammie and Joe's in Redmond.

The feast was more than plenty and the dog was more than cute.

Friday we were all very lazy. We had way too much turkey!

On Saturday we went over to the Father Pesz house to hang out with Zach. The boys wanted to watch football, Simon wanted to sleep and Erin and I did not want to participate in either activity. We decided to make ourselves drinks and watch Party of Five. Everyone was happy and it was a very good day.

The Ducks won and we found out that Baily has a drinking problem.

When Scott and I left we said goodbye to Erin. She won't be back until the spring and that makes us a little sad.

It was a pretty good Thanksgiving...I can't wait until next year...

I miss the turkey and stuffing already!

It's official...We have a Hood to Coast team and I am on it! Now I need to get up and get moving. I've got a lot of training to do.

I still can't believe it! I thought for sure it was all a dream until I found this on my doorstep. It's not only real but because of me and all of my friends who got out and made their voice heard. Thank you!

Election Day 2008

I started the day off right...I voted! That's right I am one of the few who went to the polls today to place my paper ballot into the big black Scantron box thing. Afterwards I bought a bagel and went to work. Then I spent the entire day in agony wondering if my vote would count.

As soon as the clock hit 6pm I ran to the bar down the street along with Erin (who's back from Yellowstone for a short time), Rachel, Sam, Scott, David and Suze. We had a blast cheering every time Obama won a state and booing when McCain won (the few that he did). After lot of cheering and alcohol we got the news that we wanted............

Our votes did matter...OBAMA WON!

Random thought for the day

With Thanksgiving just around the corner I've been thinking more and more about one of my silly goals in life...

I wish with all my heart that I could make a big, homecooked Thanksgiving dinner for my family. I know that this is shockingly old fashioned of me and that I don't really have family to do this for but I've always been in love with this Norman Rockwell painting. I want to stuff the turkey, bake the pies and gather around the table to laugh, talk and say what I'm most thankful for.

Maybe I'll get my wish someday but the way things are going...well, who knows. For now I guess I can just go on dreaming my dream.
