Day of Thanks

It's not very often that we have the whole family together, so we used the opportunity to take some family pictures.
Thanks to aunt Mari for getting Pearl to smile!
I don't think many days can top Thanksgiving.  You have an excuse to over-indulge on the most delicious food, surrounded by the people you love the most.  This year, we celebrated at my Uncle Doug's house.  My aunt Anne didn't scrimp on any details.


Enjoying the feast.  the food was divine.  We have Thanksgiving cajun style.  Crayfish stuffing, made to perfection, sweet potato casserole, and home-made pickles.  Top it off with aunt Peggy's award-winning pecan pie, and we're good to go.

Pearl is nearly comatose after devouring a slice of chocolate pie.

The other great thing about Thanksgiving? Being lazy. After we ate, everyone found a spot, sprawled out, and took a nap. We found Cristy sleeping on our four year old cousin's bunk bed!


Uncle John using the intimidation factor on my Dad.
I think it's safe to say, Pearl was loving all of the attention.  
Where's Pearl?

There she is!

She took about two more steps before the 
weight of the blanket pulled her down.

We always try to see a flick on Thanksgiving.  
This year we saw Four Christmases.
It was really cute, but unnecessarily raunchy at times.
Whew!  Thanksgiving is over?  

Christmas......here we come.

I love the blanket over head game. It is definitely one of our favorites. Just wait until Pearl wants to stack every pillow in the house for one game or another.

You guys got a great picture of your family there. You could probably frame that and say it was professionally taken.

it's good to see that you and shelly are still two of the most gorgeous girls i've ever seen. it's kind of not fair, and i'd probably just be super jealous of you if we weren't friends. ;) but it looks like you had a great thanksgiving and i love all the pics. hopefully we'll see you soon.
