Day of Gratitude #28 – Thanksgiving 2013...a low-tech and high-family experience

Slept in. Slowly made our way through ice and snow to the lodge where oodles of family members we feasting on breakfast meats, chocolate-chip pancakes, hash browns and juice. Yum. Yum. Yum. Piled into an impressing collection of Suburban’s and four-wheel drive cars and drove to the forests to hunt for Christmas trees. Dodged flying snowballs tossed by energetic nieces and nephews. Successfully identified tree. Chop. Chop. Chop. Back to the lodge to freshen up and change into stretchy pants. Set the table, mash the spuds, and carved the birds. Eat. Eat. Eat. Cleaned-up and washed remaining dishes in industrial dishwasher-a true essential for any Thanksgiving meal. Rich family talent show complete with song, dance and dramatic readings. My favorite was cousin Bryan spontaneously doing an interpretive dance and song inspired by a corporate finance principle….a new classic! Whipped the cream and cut the pie. Eat. Eat. Eat. Again. Talk. Laugh. Talk some more. Sleep. Sleep. Sleep!
