I will let the pictures do the talking!
|Holding my niece Anna for the first time! I wasn't able to hold her at the baptism as I was sick that day, but holding her was worth the wait!|
|I totally monopolized her for the first couple of hours. I love her little "milk dream" smile in this photo|
|Mom & my brother Kevin, the host, working on the Thanksgiving Feast!|
|My sister-in-law Julie working on the gravy, with Matthew supervising at her side. ;)|
|Turkey & gravy! Yum!|
|One of my contributions to the meal was brussel sprouts. My aunt provided the recipe, which was called "Brussel Sprouts Parisienne"! Gotta incorporate a little bit of France in the meal!|
|Kolin & Matthew enjoying the meal!|
|James & Andrew are all about the 'silly' poses!|
|After dinner, Anna and Charlie "played together". I really caught Charlie by surprise in this photo!|
|The boys played so hard, they had to take their shirts off to cool down!|
So there you have it! A selection of photos from a wonderful day! We capped off the day with a game of Apples to Apples and Trivial Pursuit, which is the perfect way to end a holiday celebration in my book!
What is your favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal? Mine is the mashed potatoes & turkey! And chocolate pie - my mom made me my own little gluten free version, which was divine.
