The Thanksgiving Madness…

…That really wasn’t.

The projection for this year was that there would be more people driving than flying. So the roads would be horrific. Not so. At least for us.

And perhaps that’s because we left at 7:45PM on Wednesday night.

And the kids were *fantastic* the whole way there. (Perhaps because they all slept for part of the drive…) We didn’t have to break out the DVD player at all for the 3.5 hour trip.

You’d also think that having 16 people under 1 roof (9 adults, 6 kids, 1 teenager) would be crazy. And it was…but a good crazy. Oh sure…there were a few meltdowns, but nothing too major. (And fine…4 of those actually live a 1/4 mile down the road, but they were all there pretty much the whole time 🙂 )

And then the ride home…that was supposed to start at 2:30PM, but ended up being 3PM tanks to 3 flat tires (Thank God for my Dad’s old farm stuff – the air compressor came in VERY handy!!) However, it all worked out because we didn’t hit much traffic on the way home either.

And the kids were – again – *fantastic* the whole way. (This time with no sleep AND no DVD player!) We had a good time making Logan’s Woody doll dance – lots of big belly laughs and giggles 🙂

I’m so thankful for my kickass family!
