Thanksgiving 2009

Thanksgiving break was grand.
We got to hang out in this lovely town with all of these lovely people...

(Stephen with some of his cousins)

(Stephen & Maddy Poo)

(all of the little cousins)

(Aunt Cathy)

(Uncle Jeff... Reece's buddy)

(My mother-in-law Eileen & her sister Debbie)

(Cousin Vanessa & her little girl Hallie)

(Uncle Gary)

(Cousins Abby & Brittany)

(Aunt DJ & Matthew... not sure who the weirdo is in the background)

(Nana, Papaw & Uncle Kris.... Maddy was not up for anymore pictures at this point.)

Honestly, I didn't spend a whole lotta time reflecting on the things that I am thankful for... although there are a TON.

I try to be thankful always.
some house rules...

I snatched this off of my friend Linda's wall. She had it hanging by her front door & now it's hanging by mine. (actually she offered it to me after I expressed my desire for something like that at my front door.)
Pretty good rules to snatch, huh?

I DID spend a whole lotta time eating a ton of good food though.
My mother-in-law home cooks everything. Even her chex mix... seriously.

...and I spent lots of time hanging out with family. I was just nice to be away from the grind.

It was good times to be had by all.

I even ventured out for Black Friday deals.... which required a little hike across the mountains.

It was nice.

Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful too!
