and onto thanksgiving


leaves falling, the colors, cooler temps, breaking out a new wardrobe (new to me after a season gone by), boots, my Ugs (wait, where are mine???  MUST buy another pair), the excitement of the coming holidays, soups simmering on the stove, baking (though i don't really do a lot of that), a collection of holiday shows (shows on stage performed by our own & shows on TV - performed by the very clay characters i watched 30 years ago), christmas cards - the first will roll in soon, the tree (must get that next week), family on the way to visit...

Thanksgiving shopping before the family gets in town with all but jeffrey.
did i think clearly about this???
why not a nap in the cart?
it works
a little extra time with friends
oh, i love this picture & i love these girls!!!
more sibling time

and the family arrives!
 just in time for jeff's favorite activity of the year
"jeff's turkey fry"
i'm still a nervous wreck about all that could go wrong w/ a fry - but this year i'm not nauseous.  halleluia!

and this little guy - our cousin andrew - is precious
plus, he's a huge fan of mctavish.  mctavish needs a little extra love (especially these days)

a lot, a lot of kiddos!  but, my kids love seeing their cousins.  (note the smile from the little lady.  pretty cute!)

even if they can't hang for all of the fun

and this little lady just needs a little solace from it all
outside is best when there are 9 other kids inside
and, here we all are!!!
