I had two Thanksgivings. I went down to St. George with Dave and we had Thanksgiving with his family. It was a lot of food and laziness and fun. We saw two movies Twilight (I know embarrassing, right? Dave wanted to see it, I promise) and Tell No One- that movie is so so good. It's a french, who done it film and I loved it. I don't think it is playing in Salt Lake yet, but if you get the chance to see it, please do. Don't let my like of Twilight keep you from trusting my movie opinion, I normally have excellent taste.
We then drove back up to Salt Lake City and had thanksgiving with my family. Also a lot of food, laziness and fun. My family love their pre dinner finger foods like shrimp cocktail, deviled eggs, cheese balls and crackers- that by the time you eat, you're already stuffed. But everything was delicious. Especially my sister-in-law's sweet potatoes. Wow, they are so good. I should get the recipe.
My mom, true to form, was hilarious as always. Telling her funny stories and making me and Dave sit through her fast forwarding through three hours of the American Music Awards she DVR'd - stopping on every act she thought was good, not limited to the New Kids on the Block reunion medley (she kept saying "aren't they so talented?" and Dave's commentary left me in stitches)- only to finally play the song she intended to show me from the beginning. It was Coolrays performance (AKA Coldplay). Never a dull moment when Sonja is around.
All in all it was a very Happy Thanksgiving. I am grateful for a good family and for good people in my life. I have so much to be grateful for.
