The best part is the laughing

...and the playing with the kids.  And I've done plenty of both the past couple of days.

Last night I did a quick run-through of the local paper and found an story about a local kindergarten teacher and the questions she asked her students about Thanksgiving... where do they get the turkey, how is it cooked, what else do they eat, where do they go, what are they thankful for... I was trying to read it out loud to Katie and Maddy and I was laughing so hard that I had to stop.  Katie took over and she didn't fare any better.  Then I had a tummy ache (in a good way) and went to bed.

Tonight I have a tummy ache (in a good way) from turkey and some so-so chestnut stuffing and also so-so spicy-hot curry broccoli salad and corn pudding and pineapple-jello salad and seven-layer salad and mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes and the most awesome cranberry sauce (port wine as an ingredient) and pumpkin pie and apple pie.

I knit for a while (I've turned the heel on the second sock of the pair for me!) and knocked off a few more recorded episodes of Boston Legal, and then I went to bed.

The laughing IS the best part. And then the eating. Mmmm.

WTF. It had me signed into Typekey without me doing it. Ugh. Anyway, thankfully I caught it.

Can you write some of those "funnies" from the kindergarten kids? I need a laugh.

Glad you had a wonderful day. I did, too. But I sure wish this backache would depart. :)

I hate this Typekey thing, too and it's impossible to explain to Typepad how much we really do hate it. BUT anywoo, your day sounds lovely!!

Sounds like the perfect holiday! We laughed a lot too...I read a similar article about a teacher's assignment to tell an alien how to cook a turkey (she even dresses up as an alien - wish I had been in her class).

Your comment about turning the heel reminds me that I need your address for a special delivery...
