Cool worked, he came. He met my mom and dad, my siblings and my uncle Doug and his family
On the actual Thanksgiving day he and I exchanged a few facebook messages. He worked bright and early on Black Friday. My family used that day to take family pictures.
I was hoping to find a picture of ALL of us, but I did find this picture of my dad and his siblings. He is the middle of 7 children. Four of them are girls.

Adam still teases me about this. But let the record show that he left my side five minutes after we arrived and spent more time talking to my family than he did me.
