The Holidays

This year for Thanksgiving we attempted to spend time with both sides of our family.  We got up early and headed west to visit Kelly's family for lunch, then made it back home to spend time with my family just before dark.  Being back "before dark" was key because I wanted to get a few family pictures.  I'm thinking family photos will become a tradition for us on Thanksgiving Day.  We were able to get some good pictures last year when I had just got my new camera...literally, that day.
Here are a few of last year's family pictures.

And this is the best we could do this year.

Here is one of the whole clan with my parents and brothers and sisters.

And here are a few from Thanksgiving Day 2009.

We had to lay Cruz down on the front door mat while we ate lunch.  He didn't seem to mind :)

The boys with Kelly's sister Steph and their Grandma.

This was the party going on when we made it back to my side of the family.

Cruz and his Ga-Ga

I'm really not fond of this picture of me, but I thought the picture was a funny one of me and my sisters.  We were searching the Black Friday ads for our shopping adventure the next morning.  Something must've been pretty funny.?.

Here we are a little more posey...

My sisters and I with the babies and our grandma and grandpa.

Thanksgiving was fun this year, but surprisingly Kelly and I were still hungry when we got home that night! That's just sad...

Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, I know two little boys who are patiently awaiting Christmas....

Wow, Bo looks so little in that photo from last year! Can't believe how much they change so quickly. And what a great family photo of you all! Good job!
