Is it just me...

...or is it funny how Christmas time gives you a free pass to listen to all kinds of dorky music--no questions asked? Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas music just as much as anyone else, but every year I just can't help but chuckle as I crank up the volume and sing along to Wham's Last Christmas (which incidentally is one of my top five favorite Christmas songs, don't mock) every time it comes on the radio. I am serious, in December I will listen to any type of music as long as it mentions Christmas.

This post is a little late.

This is how our Thanksgiving Day started.
When I was preheating the oven there was a buzzing sound. I opened the oven to find a fire. When the fire went out so did the bottom oven element. And of course it is Thanksgiving so we can't get a new one. So I ended up broiling everything including the turkey. I put a cookie sheet on the top rack to deflect the heat away from the top of the food. It was actually quite delish.
This is what we ate.

This is what the girls ate. They never get canned food so it was a treat.

A few little known facts about Jared

He loves to listen to Delilah on the radio. He knows all the words to the songs in the movie Annie. For some unexplained reason our dog Zoe is madly in love with him. (I'm keeping an eye on you Zoe.) He is obsessed with anything pumpkin flavored. He always smells good. Well, almost always. One of his favorite TV shows is Judge Milian's People's Court. (I just don't get it.) He hardly ever gets mad. He loves bikes. Okay maybe that is a well known fact. When you think he is listening intently to what you are saying, he is actually analyzing how easy it it would be to get an IV into your veins. Happy Birthday Jared!
