Thanksgiving 2008

Dan and I hosted Thanksgiving this year for the Burgess Family, although with Brooke, Keith, Jay and Andy in Germany and Ty and Makamae in Utah, there wasn't a very large group!  We had a great time though!  We spent a large portion on the afternoon watching the Movie must have been like 3 hours long, but it was fantastic!

So since we got out the movie later than we anticipated, the turkey didn't get in the oven as soon as we had planned - I guess we aren't that good of planners :) - we had a very late Thanksgiving dinner!  

That stupid red thing popped up finally!!!  Notice the hour :)
We don't know why Dan looks kinda like a hologram in the picture below.  We used the timer thing on our camera for the first time, but what difference would that make?

I love The Biggest Loser!  It is such an inspirational show...I have lost like 4 pounds-since starting my own weight loss program, not quite as much as those guys but nonetheless working towards my goal. I am even more involved after tonight when Amy voted Brady off and start to break up the most annoying and obnoxious alliance ever!  I must sound like a nut, but I can't help but love this show!  Dan and I were practically yelling at the TV...hey, I watch college football with him :)  Hopefully Heba, Ed, and Vicki get voted off next, in that order.  Did anyone else notice in the preview for next week what Vicki put on Amy's door?  Something about revenge...come on now.  Can't wait to see what happens.  My vote is for Colleen to win the whole thing!!!
