Mastercard commercial (my stab at it)

I added these numbers up as best I could remember these last 12 years.  Let's see how it went:

$1000 worth of change fees for airline tickets (that's on the low side)

$10 worth of Dramamine to go w/ 319 hours of travel

$122,000 worth of adoption expenses

10 kids seated around the dining room table for Thanksgiving:  PRICELESS!!!

We had a quiet Thanksgiving today with just us. A family of 12.  A family united.  A family complete.  Though we never got around to fixing the dining room table, we all managed to be in the same room.  We had turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn, cranberry sauce, and sparkling grape juice.  Made chocolate chip cookies and apple pie for dessert.  I'd give you some but there's none left.  LOL.  I'm surprised a 20 lb. turkey does not go that far any more.  Turkeys must be exercising & losing weight.  We really enjoyed our meal today. 

Not the best shot but exemplifies the post above.  Nothing fancy this year.  We're all still tired, all still transitioning, all still going to medical appointments, etc.  So, we kept it simple but delicious.  And, most importantly, we were all together for a wonderful meal.  I will have 2 more posts on how our Thanksgiving was w/ lots of pictures of course.  We have so, so much to be thankful for.  So much.  Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
