We had a nice time over the Thanksgiving holidays. We slept in a half hour later each day, it was delightful.
On actual Turkey Day, the whole family (minus two lovlies in L.A.) came together. Here are some snippits.
:: coloring with my niece before the feast ::
:: my uncle bringing over some of mee-maw’s oyster dressing, brought directly from her spirit apparently ::
:: setting out the glassware. Yes, the blue one was mine ::
:: catching my husband in awkward photo positions ::
:: hanging out with my sisters and posting a good-looking photo in hopes that one of them will forgive me for what is soon to come ::
:: holding hands and saying a couple prayers before committing gluttony ::
:: holding back on portion size ::
:: giving thanks to our hosts ::
:: also giving thanks that I don’t have to look at this carnivorous activity straight on. A side view is plenty, thank you ::
:: watching home movies, including one in which my sister, L, asks a question on the Leeza Gibbons Show while in college. This one made our stomachs hurt we laughed so hard ::
:: while Aunt Carrie played the piano ::
But I have to say there was one thing that most contributed to this being a great weekend. Not the family time, not the sleeping-in….
Please give us more of R in awkward photo positions!! Love it!
Whoa! No blurring of R's face! What's the deal?
L is going to killllll you! very brave, carrie, very brave.
UNC,I must say, the oyster dressing was divine….
I am sick and on Nyquil even though it is 1015 am and I am the sole adult in the house with my two boys. I just read this and shot coffee out of my very stuffed up nose. Now I realize that is gross and it hurt a lot, but Lordy that pic of the inappropriate pose was hi-larious.
I wonder how long it took your nieces to choreograph a dance to "It's a Grand Ole Flag"?
But I must wonder…. Where is the infamous green crap? You know – the stuff that eventually led to Uncle Gary's divorce from Patty? I see none of it on your plate… Please don't tell me Aunt Pat has shelved it. It made the best mortar.
You guys are cracking me up!– And Bruce, ssshhhhhh!!!!!!!
