Anyone have a funny Thanksgiving quote? The only one I can remember was from my brother: “I’m only friends [on Facebook] with people I don’t know.” It was also funny to see my face popup on his Droid.

I also was reminded of how much I love my wife. Since she didn’t come to my parents at the same time I did, I waited until she showed. At one point we all heard the door open and my mom said that is was probably “Chris”. I immediately got excited because I thought it was my wife instead of my brother. (Sorry Chris!)

Lexi celebrated her 10th birthday this Thanksgiving! (The big one-oh. Double digits.) We gave her treats and lots of love.
