Thanks Mom

My mom just had a houseful of 19 people for Thanksgiving, 19 people who never wanted to leave. Thanks Mom, thanks for a yummy dinner (actually several yummy meals), for not complaining when your beautiful kitchen and family room looked like a nuclear bomb hit it, for taking out 18 bags of trash...a day, for playing with our grandchildren even when they were being pills, for providing a place where the family can get some quality time together, and for being cheerful through it all. We love you and REALLY appreciate you, why do you think we want to be around you so much?

Even I love your Mom (not that it's surprising, I just hardly know her).

And we would be happy to make it 23 people next year.

M--looks like you had a fabulous Thanksgiving. We're home now and we want to hang out.

Wow, I'm impressed. That's a whole lotta company to deal with! Your mom is pretty great though!:)
