Turkey and DDR

Today was the first mine and Ryan's first Thanksgiving together. We celebrated with my family at my aunt and uncle's house. The food was great. The updates from cousins in NY at the Macy's parade were great. My Poppy burping in my face and completely denying it was not great, but by far the best part of the day was DDR. We were sitting on the couch with full bellies debating what to do and then we decided to try it: Dance, Dance, Revolution. For those of you who don't know, it's this crazy thing on a game station that has arrows pointing in different directions. You stand on a power pad and follow the arrows to corresponding spots to the beat of music. It goes at different speeds and etc. Anyway we did this for like 2 hours. Mom, Aunt Joyce, Ryan, Amy, and I got pretty good at it. Well maybe not mom but she gave us some great laughs---I promise photos and possibly a video later. Dad even tried a few times. It's a pretty good workout and I actually enjoyed it. I don't think our downstairs neighbors would enjoy it if I got one though! In conclusion, I think all of the food I consumed today was burned out during DDR, so now I can enjoy even more food tomorrow at my birthday party!! Today's question is how did you spend your Thanksgiving and have you ever experienced DDR?

I ate ate ate of course. Too much turkey and too much pumpkin pie. I got to play Round House Rummy this year, which is my favorite card game. Never have experienced DDR but I have heard of it before. Sounds like fun. Can't wait to see video of your mom trying it. Glad you guys had a great Thanksgiving. Hope you have a great birthday party tomorrow. Our cards in the mail. (Bet you've heard that one before.) Love & miss ya

I have tried DDR apparently I did not try it long enough (not 2 hours) I wish I could be good at it, but I was so bad it was pathetic, so I hate it!! These 10 year olds were better than me.

I am addicted to DDR when it's in my presence. You bring it next door anytime and play it at my house...plus it's great excercise. Hopefully I'll see you on Monday. Take care,

I'm proud of you for playing that game after eating. After we stuffed our faces of turkey at John's Granny's house all of us sat around looking like stuffed turkeys! We were wanting to invest in some sweatpants because our jeans were squeezing our tummies!:)
