Family, Friends, and Felt

Happy Thanksgiving!

What are you thankful for this year? Here’s my list. It’s pretty short if I trim off the regular stuff, like food, clothes, a home, and such. (Though I am still thankful for those. :) ) First and foremost, I am thankful for my family and friends, but after the important things, I am thankful for The Muppets! :D And Cheesecake. :)

Today was great! It didn’t start off too great, I had to get up at 6 in the morning in order to be at work at 7. I ended up a couple minutes late because I had to scrape ice off my car, there was fog at one point, and a deer ran into the road as well. Thankfully the only thing I ran into was the fog. Work was fine though. It went by really fast because we were so busy. At 2 o’clock the store actually closed for the Thanksgiving holiday. Hy-Vee is normally open 24/7, so the store closing is something that people aren’t used to. At two they had me go and make sure that no one else came in before someone could get down with the key to lock the store. I ended up having to turn away about a dozen people. I felt like a bouncer or something…

After work I went home and checked my e-mail, facebook etc. I ordered some things on eBay for something that I’m not going to blog about yet, but I will, I promise! :) Mom had made a casserole while I was at work, so I ate some of that and went to visit my grandma with my cousins, and afterward we walked back to their house, where we set out for the theater. Shaina, Sasha, my Aunt Sherri and I all went to see The Muppets, and we all loved it!

There’s a line in the main song, “Life’s a Happy Song” that goes, “I can’t seem to wipe this smile off my face.” That basically sums up how I feel about the movie. I could expound upon just how much I love the movie, but it would end up being an endless string of quotes of my favorite lines, and descriptions of my favorite gags and jokes, which would mean far less coming from me than if you were to actually watch them for yourself. I loved the songs, I loved the jokes, I loved the characters, I loved everything about the movie! The part of the movie that I was most apprehensive about was the fact that they had invented a brand new Muppet who was basically the star. I was afraid I would not like the character, and he wouldn’t fit with the old characters. I was wrong. I loved him. Walter is a great character and he fits in perfectly. This movie exceeded my expectations, and anyone who finds the Muppets even slightly amusing needs to see it!

After the movie, we drove home where we had cheesecake, and both Pumpkin and Apple Pie. Sasha is pretty much the cheesecake queen, and Sarah is an amazing pie maker, so I ate way too much sweet stuff. :) Then we just stood around talking until I decided that it was time I went home, as it was after 11. And then I decided I needed to write a Thanksgiving blog before I went to bed, so here it is.

I am thankful for my family, who are also my friends, who also love the Muppets, and wanted to spend the evening with me laughing at their hilarious, crazy, random, Muppety antics. :D

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
