Happy Thanksgiving!

My whole family came home for Thanksgiving this year and it was really great. I am an idiot and left my camera at home by accident so I will have to post pictures later when my family posts theirs. My grandma came down which was really awesome. We got to spend a good part of the day with her. In addition to good company, the Lewis clan set a new record for food consumption. For those of you who don't know, I have three brothers - very big, hungry brothers so it was an all day eat fest. My mom is an awesome cook and we definetly enjoyed her good food. Our family has a tradition of playing Cranium whenever we get together. It's always boys against girls. You can count on a few things occuring during the game: 1)The boys will stop at nothing to win - this includes cheating. My little brother has even gone as far as putting his camera phone under the glass table and taking a picture of the answer on the back of the card. 2)The volume reaches ear piercing degrees! We love playing this game and it gets pretty competitive. Tommy and I both married very competitive people as well so you can always count on a good game. The boys won both times which was a very sad state of affairs for us girls. It will be sad to see the family leave but it was such a good time and I am just always reminded how lucky I am to have the family that I do!
