On Sunday evening, my parents, brother, sister-in-law, niece, nephew, grandma, uncle and my own little crew had our annual Fakesgiving celebration.
What is Fakesgiving, you ask? Well, I'll tell you.
I described it last year in detail here, but to sum up, Fakesgiving is basically a pre-Thanksgiving celebration for those in my extended family who will not be in town for "real" Thanksgiving. We do it because we can't stand the thought of celebrating apart from one another, even for one holiday. Family is really, really important to us. And oh my gosh, do we love each other. I just get all sappy thinking about it because...
Okay, fine. It's actually so we can have two turkey feasts during the month of November. Don't get me wrong, I love my niece and nephew. But oh lord, do I love the turkey.
You know how you get that feeling when you've eaten just enough that you're perfectly, comfortably full? I went about 1.5 plates beyond that last night. And since I'm still in a turkey coma tonight, I can't seem to muster up anything else to write about. So I'm just gonna post some pictures and call it a night.
Sorry I don't have any pictures of the actual Fakesgiving celebration, but I was too busy eating. Sometimes you just have to live in the moment, you know?
