Smells like Christmas!

What does the Best Thanksgiving Day Ever look like?
Perhaps it is one spent with family... or depending on your family, perhaps it's one without your family. Either way, the common denomiator ususally consists of Turkey!

What does MY Best Thanksgiving Day Ever look like??? Simple... The one I had last night!
Of course it consisted of the usual Turkey, Stuffing, Corn, Mashed Potatoes, Pumpkin Pie, and a couple of Beers and a glass of Baileys on ice! There was also the usual people who attended: my father, my mother, my brother and his girfriend Tracy, myself and Jacob.

So what's new? What made this year the best year EVER? It wasn't the food, although the food was top notch, and it wasn't so much the people either... It was the activities.

It started out with me working...DULLSVILLE!!! I had just finished all of my checkouts and everything else was done when I realized that there was a NASCAR race that was ready and waiting to start.
They said the most famous words in motor sports history: "Gentlemen, Start Your Engines!" The commentators started to commentate... The Flag person was getting ready to raise the green flag in anticipation of waving it around to start the race... The flag goes up... and the flag WAVES... you can here the motors just starting to rev up as the racers just hit the gas... I hear the Commentators "And there they..."
"NNNOOOOOO!" I yell in agony. The wind must have knocked out the cable.
I sit in Silence.
Half hour later, the phone rings. Finally, something for me to do. The person on the other line is wanting to make a reservation. So I ask for their name... "Silvia Renthurst... that's S I L V I A... R E N..." POWER GOES OUT, PHONE CUTS OUT, T.V. SHUTS OFF ENTIRELY.
Five minutes later the power comes back on but the cable was still out. The phone starts going crazy as it rings continuously and with each ring it changes in volume and stregnth. I wanted to throw it out the window. Thank goodness it was two oclock!

So far, the day was not going too well.

After work I went over to Jacob's house to pick him up for my family's turkey dinner.
As soon as I got home I rushed to the living room where dad was watching the rest of the race. 14 laps to go! Tony Stewart almost won but then he made a stupid mistake by moving up in the corner... Jeff Gordon won.
After the race Jacob and I went downstaires to watch "The Truman Show". Neither him nor I ended up watching the movie in it's entirety as we both fell asleep. Jacob had also brought over his super-nerdy-but-oh-so-fun Starwars Monopoly as well as another board game called Ticket to Ride. As there was still a couple of hours before dinner would be ready we decided we'd play Monopoly. As we were setting up the game, dad walks over and asks us what we were going to play to which we replied "Monopoly, Starwars version" and then Jacob asks the question that I never would have considered "do you want to play too???"

Here's where the most wonderful, oddly confusing, never-expected-it-to-happen-in-a-million-years, absolutely made this the best Thanksgiving Ever, thing came in... "Yeah, sure. I'd love to play monopoly."


Dad has not played a board game with me or the rest of the family in... well, ever since I can remember. I mean I love my dad dearly, but when it comes to turning off the t.v. and doing something as a family it just doesn't happen.
I have always been jealous of Jacob and his family when it comes to the time they spend together, and so I ran downstaires and begged my mom to play with us. She too was happily suprised when I told her that dad was playing but she was busy with work and said "isn't it good enough that your father is playing"... to which I replied "but mom, it's the dream!"

So dad, Jacob and I played while the turkey was turkey-ing. It smelt like christmas minus the pine (which we never really had because we've always had a fake tree) Then Nathan and Tracy came over. The six of us sat in what would never be considered silence, and we ate and drank and were merry.

We then all sat around the living room coffee table and my mother and Nathan and Tracy watched as Jacob, dad, and I battled it out Starwars style.

I won!

Although we did not ALL play, it was the dream. And I am thankful for the family to be able to all get together and do something as a family. Mostly I am thankful for Jacob, for his thinking to bring these board games (which I pessemistically thought would never get touched) and for his asking my dad if he would like to play.

Have a Great Thanksgiving Everybody!
Hopefully it will be as good as mine!
