Thanksgiving Day

November 26, 2012

This year, we spent Thanksgiving in Las Vegas at Ryan’s brother, Todd’s house. His parents and younger brother, Mark (and wifey) were also able to come. Only one missing was his older sister’s family.

One of the highlights was sharing from our Thankful Turkeys what we were thankful for. Tears were shed, laughs were had, and lasting memories were made.

A’hem… No, we don’t let our kids booze it up. That’s grape juice, sillies.

(not pictured: gage’s mini-tantrum… which led to Husby neglecting his plate… which led to grumpy pants… we all know how husby likes to focus on his food in peace. haha)

Hope everyone had a safe & happy Thanksgiving!

    Just beautiful- so picturesque! Our Thanksgiving included sickness and my beautiful niece taking two trips to the ER. We’ll go for Better Homes and Gardens next year. 😉

    Beautiful picture of Craig and Kristine and the kiddies! I can’t believe how big Todd and Michelle’s kids are. Everything looks so perfect and delicious! I am glad you added the tantrum and grumpy pants part… :) Vacations always have to have a little drama!

    I am Ryan’s aunt, and for some reason this came up on my Facebook. Wow, what BEAUTIFUL pics of the families’ on Thanksgiving. We visited Todd and Michele this summer, I thought their gorgeous house looked familiar. What adorable children you all have. Looks like it was a Thanksgiving to remember for years to come with yummy food, and family:)!!
