Happy Thanksgiving

My extended family gathered for Thanksgiving dinner every year. I haven't been home to StL for T-day since 1994, but I have 'celebrated' every year, regardless of the location. Reflecting on T-days past, I have come to this basic conclusion:

As if by law, most families have the same characters (along with the basic assortment of 'normal folk'):

Now that I have chosen to move so far away, my sister says that there is a new 'character' to T-Day~~'Uppity Girl', a name given to me by Hateful Aunt. I guess I 'earned' this name because I realized there is more to the world than St. Louis, Missouri, and chose to live abroad. Also, I don't go home often (ever experience a 16 hour flight with a 3 year old? You wouldn't go home often, either!).

On Turkey Day, be thankful for all the 'characters' in your family, give each of them a nice big hug and tell them you love them.

Don't hang around Man Hater too long, she might convert you!!

Happy Thanksgiving To ALL!!
