Happy Thanksgiving!

As I mentioned, today was Thanksgiving at my parents house. The front was crowded with cars and every chair inside was occupied. The kitchen island was groaning under all the food and the dining room table was covered with desserts of variety (naturally, this is where I, my aunts, and all the kids decided to sit; mama didn't raise no dummies!). We had a fabulous time visiting with everyone and catching up on the lives of people like my dad's cousin's son's new baby.

My sister bought Dad a game for his birthday, so we sat around tonight trying to figure out who was smarter than a 5th grader. And guess what, I won 1 MILLION DOLLARS! I still haven't seen any of that money, but hey, at least I used that oh so important knowledge of Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species. It's amazing how much stuff you can pull out of your head when you haven't had to use it since high school biology.

My sister is trying to sleep, so I'm headed to bed, too. Woohoo, an extra hour tonight!
