Hey all!  I just wanted to wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! Eat lots of yummy food. If you are traveling, be safe!  If you are in Utah, watch out for the eminent “blizzard”.  I’ll be taking the day off on Thursday to enjoy the Thanksgiving festivities with my family and to celebrate my birthday!  Hooray!  Once every 7 years I get to celebrate my birthday on Thanksgiving, and this year is it!  I’m also turning the big 3-0!  So it’s super exciting!

And now, in honor of my third decade, a little nostalgia…

Awww…cute little Amy

And we wonder why Big Brother is so skinny!  He gets it from his mom.
