Oh the Adventures of Thanksgiving


So Kim and I have finally had a chance to rest after quite a weekend at my dad's house. We left for New Castle (A little town about 9 miles west of Glenwood Springs) on Wednesday. All was great when we got up there as i was looking forward to a weekend of fun, football, food, and relaxation. Well let the fun begin. On thursday morning we awoke to Mylie getting sick all over her crate, Yes she threw up and pooped all over her blankets as she was still battling some sickness from eating the multch outside in our backyard. We spent the morning cleaning that up. Ok no big deal right, so our dog is sick at least she was having fun with the other pups (Biscut and Honey Bear). So Thanksgiving was off to a rough start, then we watched football and ate some awesome food and then we went to bed after a day full of football and food.

Friday morning we found out that Mary (my step mom) was up all night throwing up. Hopefully mylie didn't give her the flu. Then Erik (My brother) was sick all day. Then friday night Kim got sick right as my other brothers and sisters got there. She ended up going to bed at 7:00 pm right after dinner only to be kept awake by a rabid game of Uno. Stupid wood floors.

Well Just when we thought that the weekend had past we decided to leave on Saturday early. At 1:00 pm we would be at home around 4:00 pm. WRONG AGAIN. We got stuck in the wonderful traffic of 1-70. It only took us 2 hours to get from silverthorn to the Tunnel. Yep we didn't get home until 7:30 pm. A 6 hour and 30 minute drive from Glenwood Springs. LAME I'm all for an I-70 toll.

Well at least we had a chance to be with family and deocrate our house on Sunday. Tis The Season and to all a good Night. (hopefully not full of throw up. I've had my share the last couple days)

Enjoy some picts
