A Thankful Thanksgiving!

I had SO much fun for the past five days. So much fun that I had 70 emails to return to because I was on the computer so little. True story.

My big bro, sis-in-law, and 14 yr old niece were here to visit from Michigan and it is always a fun, funny, and over-indulgent time when they are here. I ate too much, drank too much, and slept too little.... I wish I had a few days off to recover from my five days off! It was worth it though ; )

Thanksgiving was eventful and tasty, as usual. My family ate at my uncle and aunt's house... and there was TWENTY-SEVEN OF US! I have a big fam. It was loud, extremely loud, but fun filled for sure.

Here are some of my fave pics:

delicious desserts and the millions of plates we needed!

if our thanksgiving dinner gets any bigger they might have to build an addition to the house!
(oh and please note the lovely handmade hand cutout turkey place settings my nieces craftily slaved over on Thanksgiving morn!)

some of my fave cousins!

a very full auntie, mom, and cousins!!

I am thankful for:
mom and dad
and sis and bro

and boyfriend
and sis in laws and bro in laws
and my 12 first cousins and
nieces/nephews and aunties and uncles

and grandparents... in heaven, rip.
and whoever I forgot


For the few days after Thanksgiving my immediate fam was all together to spend all the time we could with my bro and we did A LOT. The best part though was a day trip we took to Boston on Saturday. I can't wait to tell you about it, but it needs its own post, so I will tell you tomorrow!!

25 Days till Christmas!!!! Are you all excited as I am??
