"That's why yamming is so dangerous."


Family. You can't live with 'em, and you can't live without 'em. That's why Thanksgiving was really invented- get together, stuff your faces, and then hurry and leave so you can drive home before the L-tryptophan in the turkey kicks in and you get too sleepy.

We celebrated Thanksgiving Wilson style on Sunday. We have short tempers and shortcomings, but we have more laughs than either of those. My favorite quotes were-
  • A miscommunication between Sam and I. He was talking about the football player, Manning, on the Patriots while I was busy preparing the candied yams. I thought he said, "That's why yamming is so dangerous." Really, he said Manning. The misinterpreted quote became the most quotable line of the night.
  • Dad: The other night I watched a geology special on channel 9... Sam: Did it rock?
  • While waiting for the family pictures- Sam: Are we ready yet? Because this is the longest I've had to pay attention.
Alright, so these all had to do with Sam. What can I say? The guy puts the "FUN" in dysFUNctional.

I keep forgetting your blog is private. Man, have I been missing out! What a fun Thanksgiving. No one can make you laugh like family. It's sometimes the only reason to keep them around ;)

Will's face is hilarious in that first picture! I love that your mom got everyone matching duds and did this for Christmas. She's the cutest. And I see you've added The Poisonwood Bible to your book roll...does that mean you finished it? What did you think of the fate of Tata Prize? Pretty great, huh?

The "did it rock" comment was the best! You are a good looking family!

You are so good at putting our family into words. It was another Thanksgiving to remember. We will be able to laugh about it next yearm besides if we were able to laugh about last years "barffet" which at the time I didn't think that would ever be possible. Love our dysfunctional fam.
