|Rylan (I mean, Chase!) and his daddy (my first cousin).|
Let's move on to Thanksgiving, where I still didn't get many good photos, but I managed to snap a few.
My sister and her husband
My brother and his wife
My cousin's hubby and their son and my brother and niece
All the kids want to swing!
The boys are brothers, Macy in the middle
Becca and the boys
Meghan is due in 10 days and her son Rylan
Wade (my cousin - Becca's brother) and Rylan.
He's married to Meghan and Wade has a twin, Josh, who couldn't make it
to Thanksgiving, but will be home for Christmas!
Whenever Sweet Niece #1 comes home, Macy refuses to let her go.
She definitely gets the rock star treatment from little niece.
You know my mom is one of 12, right? Here is part of the crew:
Brenda, Mom, Linda and Ann
My sister and her family. This will be part of the Christmas Card
So Thanksgiving involved over 25 people or so with a ton of food. Our Thanksgiving isn't the tablescapes with place settings and elaborate decor like you see on tv commercials. It's more of a line-the-counter-with-an-abundance-of-food, grab-your-plates-and-fill-them-up, find-a-place-on-the-couch-or-on-the-porch, you know the deal. So good. So much to be thankful for, ain't that the truth.
Now that those two holidays are in the past, time is marching forward to Christmas. I'm so thankful I'm almost done. Now it's time to wait for presents to appear at the office, where I'm having everything delivered. Love it. I've totally overspent and I wonder what on earth went wrong in my head as I just kept buying stuff for people. But I love finding things I think they'll love, so it just finds its way into my "cart" and CLICK, it's coming to the office any day now.
*sigh* Family is my downfall, what can I say?
Ok ya'll, I hope you are enjoying the holidays and not totally stressing yourselves out.
