Thanksgiving Stuff (ing)

Its been a looooooong time since I got to spend Thanksgiving with my family. In fact? I am pretty sure I was sick in bed at my own house the last Thanksgiving I lived here, so ::bleh:: EVEN LONGER.

My family has a tradition of running the Turkey Trot first thing in the morning Thanksgiving morning.

Here we all are on Thursday. (Boom Boom is looking down right behind me.) My sisters are holding my babies, and my Mom is on the far right.

Who is that guy on the far left? Some random guy named "Ham Pants".

My Dad is taking the photo.

I am the one in pants. (I don't even OWN running shorts.)

I am also (CLEARLY) the fastest one in the family.

After the race we went to a long time family friend's house for a HUGE dinner.
Here is the oldest of my sisters with the youngest of my offspring.

I can't tell you how thankful I am for all of THAT.


Fwends of ALL ages!

My younger sister. I may have never seen so much texting going on at a Thanksgiving before, with 6 single(ish) young ladies in the house!

The table is set.

The appetizers out.

The candles lit.
The anticipation great.

The turkey carved.

The little ones CUTE.

The conversation good.

The love being felt.

The glasses raised.

The tryptophan winning.

The sweetness sweeter than ever.
I am SO THANKFUL for so many things this year, but this? This picture right here takes the cake - no - it takes the whole dessert table.
