The kids and I were able to join Joel for a Thanksgiving lunch celebration at work today. Six lucky people were chosen to receive pies in the face based on votes by their coworkers. Joel received the most number of votes because of a voting war that he got into and lost. People then got to bid on who got to put the pie in their face and Asher won that bid! Well, I don't think anyone was about to bid against a 4 year old. Asher got to make the pie which consisted of mustard, syrup, ranch dressing, ketchup, chocolate syrup, and whipped cream. A coworker helped him throw it in Daddy's face while I snapped some lovely photos. Asher LOVED it! Anna was a wreck crying on the sidelines...she was so upset for him. Everyone thought that was so cute. It was disgusting but Joel was such a good sport. Even after a shower and good nose blowing, Joel says he still smells mustard.
We are enjoying a nice Thanksgiving to ourselves tomorrow which we are really looking foward to. It took me awhile to get over my grumpiness of being so far from those we love but we are still going to have a great holiday. We are so thankful that we have each other and for all that God has given us. We are going to celebrate with some parade watching, Joel is deep frying a turkey...YUM, and dessert with friends. and we plan to start decorating for Christmas on Friday! We hope you all have a HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!
