Thanksgiving consists of

   Consists is a weird word, don't you think?  I mean, just look at it.  It has so much quirk!  You could also say "consists" over and over again using different intonations and accents, and draw it out until it's the longest word you've ever said in your life, and say it a bajillion times as fast as you can until it doesn't even sound like a word anymore.  Or you could just promise never to be a word-addicted weirdo like me and move on with your life.
   Now, what was this post supposed to be about?  Ah, yes. Turkey-day!  So let me tell what my Thanksgiving break has consisted of thus far:
  • sleeping in. amen.
  • family collaboration. resulting in broccoli and cauliflower salad and pie. mostly pie.
  • painting my nails for the first time in months.
  • The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R Tolkien.
  • old VHS movies.
  • seeing cousins who are old and in college and getting married and having babies and all that jazz.
  • sooo. much. food. it was sooo good.
  • a new lyric obsession. "I wanna be so far gone in You.." Thousand Foot Krutch. yes.
  • plastering paper snowflakes all over the windows.
  • not going shopping.
  • inhaling leftover rolls and pie.
  • clean laundry.
  • teaching Jonathon that listening to music really means belting out the lyrics (and instrumentals) whenever you feel like it.
  • dance parties with the 4-year-old. while frying eggs. don't try this at home.
  • realizing all over again how good God is. blows my mind.
   And you?  I'm dying to hear of your fabulous holiday experience.  Any special traditions?  Yummiest food?  Hilarious moments?  What are you thankful for?  Happy fall y'all!
