Thanksgiving and the Flooded Kitchen of 2012!

Sharing is caring!

I hope that all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  My family had a great one.  Miles, unfortunately, worked 7am-3pm, but the nice big paycheck we’ll have this next week will be worth it.  🙂

I have a funny story to tell.  Riley was still asleep at 10am and I was in on my computer in the bedroom.  Well, my mom decided to put the turkey in cold water to make sure it was thawed out enough.  Well, I could have sworn I heard bacon sizzling, so I ventured out to see what exactly was going on.  Well, my mom was sitting on the couch looking at the newspaper.  I go into the kitchen.  All I see is water running over the sink onto the floor.  And yell, “MOM!” and she says, “Oh crap!”  She had left the kitchen to get something and got distracted and totally forgot about the water being on!  LOL!  I still can’t believe she did it!  She did clean up the water, though, with some of my help… of course I was laughing too hard to be of much help.  ;D

Did anything funny happen on your Thanksgiving day?

  1. That’s one Thanksgiving you won’t soon forget :). It’s good you had a great Thanksgiving.

  2. My first Thanksgiving as an adult we had a fire in the oven and my father’s garage was flooding. It was very eventful, but those are the memories you keep forever. 🙂

  3. Oh no! Although, speaking from experience- it is these holidays that are usually the most memorable.

  4. This will be a Thanksgiving story that will be remembered! Glad you were home when it was going on – imagine how much worse it could’ve been if you all headed out and then came back to it?

  5. Thank goodness for the sound of sizzling bacon…lol
    Our most memorable Thanksgiving is one we remember with dread and foreboding…my daughters and I decided to make EVERYTHING from scratch- from the stuffing, rolls, pies, etc. It was such hard work and took most of the day. By the time dinner was ready, we were exhausted and not very hungry. The worst part was that our hours and hours of hard work were eaten up in just a few minutes and we were left starring at a kitchen full of dirty dishes and a big mess. Thanks for the men in my family…they did all the clean up.

    Now we buy our pies, roll, stuffing, all ready made and just focus on getting a delicious roasted turkey, homemade potatoes and a green salad.

  6. Thanksgiving´s always full of mischievous mishaps ; )
