My very happy Thanksgiving!

This Thanksgiving was very memorable.  This was the first Thanksgiving, since I was 3, that I have spent with my father.  He has just recently moved within 40 miles of my house.  So, I thought this a perfect opportunity to invite him to spend the holiday with my family.  My dad came over at 12:00 and shortly thereafter, we left to Eric's dad's house.  There we ate and ate and watched the Giants game.  My dad LOVED the fact that there were no expectations of him, but to relax and enjoy his time.  This was the first Thanksgiving in 8 years, that I did not run from house to house to see each family member that lives in Boise.  This year my dad came first and was the priority of the holiday.  For those of you that don't know. . .my dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer shortly before Taylor was born.  He has had several surgeries and treatment, but the cancer is persistant and will not leave!  So, for now. .. the cancer is not growing or spreading and for that I am thankful.  I am glad that I chose to spend time with my dad and put him first!
