You know how sometimes the anticipation and waiting for an event is the best part of it? Like Christmas. And not like pregnancy.

Well, I think that Thanksgiving in April is one of those things like Christmas.

Around actual Thanksgiving I bought a turkey because the boyscouts asked me to. And then I asked Ashley if she had room for it in for it in her fancy-pants grown up freezer. She did. I didn't. Then I promptly forgot about it.

Until I remembered while we were out shopping one day. "oh my gosh you have my turkey!" I gasped.
"I know." She hadn't forgotten.
"I totally forgot about that, I'm so sorry!" I babbled. Because I babble when I'm stupid.
"I know." She doesn't babble. Probably because she's not stupid.
"So...wanna come to our house for Thanksgiving in the Spring and we'll eat it?"
"Sure." Seriously, she doesn't babble.

Well that was like a month ago - back when it was spring before snow. We set a date (yesterday) for our Thanksgiving Day feast and got to planning.

But then Saturday night Tommy thought barfing was what the cool kids were doing (and we all know he's cool) and then Sunday morning Josh thought Tommy was right. And the two of them were downright disgusting.

So we cancelled Thanksgiving. Really we just postponed it because a thawed turkey will only last so long..... And in doing so, we remembered some other stuff we forgot (ice cream! decorations!) and the Thanksgiving feast just keeps getting better and better.

I can't wait for tomorrow night.


  1. MMmm that sounds so fun and yummy! I'm a little bit jealous!

  2. That sounds awesome! I can't wait to hear about the actual event!
