Not the Worst Thanksgiving

For months, we have planned a trip to Albequerque, New Mexico to see my sister, Sarah for Thanksgiving. I called her an excessive amount of times about the trip and we took weeks prepping Nicole for the prospect as she is very anxious about any change.

And then, the curse happened. Dano got a double whammy of croupe and strep. The day before we were supposed to leave, we went to both the doctor and the ER with Dano because he was so sick. And we thought that maybe he would feel better fast and we could go a day late, but, alas, he did not. His fever persisted through Thanksgiving and we were forced to accept that the trip was not going to happen.

This happened last year too. Sarah came out for over a week for Christmas and the kids got the croupe and I got bronchitis and we did not get to spend hardly any time with her. I am cursed. Doomed to not spend time with my little sister!

So, we spent our Thanksgiving apart. I went to my parent's for dinner, then brought food home to Matt and the kids and then Matt left for his Mom's to have dessert. Even though it was a fairly crummy Thanksgiving with sick kiddos, it still was not the worst Thanksgiving ever.

I can only hope now that Matt and I will be able to plan some other get away to New Mexico to see Sarah and hopefully it will happen next time.

It was super duper lame! We were so excited about you coming. Come some other time. Whenever. Maybe go to the temple, fast, and pray for good health before you plan to come next time...and take vitamin C and everything known to man to keep you healthy. And then for reals come see meeeeeeee!!!!

What is the worst Thanksgiving ever if not this one? You can't go see Sarah again because you spent your Albuquerque money already.

Thanksgiving of 2004 was the worst Thanksgiving ever. Kinda hard to beat that one.
