Thanksgiving Day!

I am so thankful to be able to spend this day with all of my family.  I traveled up to my older sisters house where my parents and my other two sisters, three brother in-laws, six nieces, one nephew, and my grandmother.  It's a packed house to say the least.  Kids running all over the place, the activity, noise, and chaos of it all.......I love it.  It reminds me of growing up in a big house and I feel totally at ease in it.  Being single still and it typically being just me and my two beagles, I miss it.  I guess if you didn't grow up in a big loud Irish background family, it wouldn't make sense to you.  I know many only children that would be looking at me like I was insane right now.  I don't know what to tell you.  It feels like home to me. I can (and did) fall asleep on the couch, right in the eye of the storm. I thank God that I have this big of a family and that I get to spend this time with them all. I wouldn't change it for all the money in the world.  I hope everyone has as great of a Thanksgiving day as I have had.
