Thanksgiving, the Day After, and other thoughts from the mind of me

This little cutie got baptized by her dad before Thanksgiving Dinner. When I asked her what she thought she said, "I'm so glad you got to see my special day!" She's a true McBride. 

The McBride Family Thanksgiving Spread
Miss Beverli and a horse she didn't ride (hers is way in the background)
Steph and her noble steed, wearing bright orange for the benefit of the last day of rifle hunting season.

Me with an awesome unmatching ensemble, and a horse that was determined to knock me over with his face. And GO SKINS!  


Things I am Thankful for and Highlights of Turkey Week 2010
Having my parents in-country and in-town!
Making the best turkey of all time! (when we took it out of the cooking pan to put in the pretty dish the entire skeleton fell out!)
Having Beverli down to visit for the weekend!
After a year of an undefined future, having 2 solid options for a great future!
Black Friday shopping with Sarah at 4 am! My steal was a $200 set of luggage for only $50 from Macy's. I may still not know where my future will take me, but I do know it will involve a lot of travel (more on these hints later)!
Horseback riding with Steph and Bev in the FREEZING cold! (But it was totally worth it!)
Getting to talk to my brother on Skype (the Air Force currently has him out of country in an unfriendly location).
Getting to see tons of cousins in one place.
My little cousins taking turns sitting in my lap (I am the Pied Piper and I love it!)
Even if BYU didn't win, the BYU v U of U game was seriously awesome!
Antibiotics (even if they do have seriously bizarre side effects**), decongestants and a "uncle doctor" who helps his unemployed and uninsured niece. (Even if she after she gave his whole family her cold!)
Introducing my parents to "Modern Family" on Hulu. And staying up way too late to watch the whole season online with them.


**fact- a side effect of my antibiotic (Avelox) is "tendon rupture" and serious ankle pain. And I'm here to tell you, it actually happens! And it hurts!
