A recent sports poll asked which of the following F's is the most important at Thanksgiving:
Though not a serious poll, a slight majority chose football, followed by food, and last was family. For us all of the above were a part of our Thanksgivingfestivities, but the most enjoyable was time with our families.
It all started with a trip to Melissa's families to kick off the feast as we gathered with family from Wyoming, Cedar City and Salt Lake. Food was aplenty and Parker found no shortage of attention with aunts and uncles to wrestle and play with. Ataste of Black Friday and its madness also found a place at the feast. Finally it was a birthday bash for Dustinto finish the fine Thanksgiving with Melissa's family.
Saturday was a taste of leftovers as we ventured south to be with the Esplin crew assembled for a mission call for Grandma and Grandpa, football games, and times spent together. Parker enjoyed the time with cousins and his new favorite toy, courtesy of Uncle Nate, the IPad, and of course tackling anybody that sat upright. Melissa enjoyed the leftovers the most as the Utes defeated the Cougs. As for myself, I drowned my sorrows in two pieces of apple pie.
We are thankful for family to spend time with. The food and football of the festivities are merely ways to join with family and experience wonderful memories together.
