Thanksgiving Part 2

Our Thanksgiving Day was certainly a day to be thankful for! The house was full of family, my mother-in-law was cooking a feast and the weather was warm and sunny!

We spent the morning being lazy, drinking up our Starbucks, and reading the Black Friday ads. After pulling ourselves together for the afternoon, the big kids begged to go back to Booth Park to slide down the hill -- and who could deny them when it was 67 degrees on Thanksgiving Day -- in Michigan!!

Who loves their Grammy!?!?!? {And who loves this light!?!?! I DO!!}

And since the mommies are never in the pictures... Carol and I were there, too! {Isn't Mike's sister gorgeous??}

And then it was time to give the tire swing some love.

It was just so gorgeous out that none of us were ready to go home so Charlie asked to go see the waterfall at Quarton Lake, so we did! At that point, my new DSLR was feeling a bit too heavy so I moved to instagram photos!

After all the fresh air, I tried to get my family dressed and out the door for a photo shoot for our holiday cards. We had to wake Henry up from his nap so he was a disaster. And then my husband dragged a baseball bat and balls out with us so you can imagine how interested they were in taking pictures... Luckily, I managed to bribe Henry to stop the tears and even convinced him to smile for a shot that was card worthy. But here's an outtake:

And then it was time for our family to come together and eat a delicious Thanksgiving dinner. My mother-in-law did it all, y'all. She's amazing. And a great cook! That being said, Henry still insisted on eating Cheerios...

  1. Remember how you met me so that I would have my 50mm lens for Thanksgiving. I decided to put in a new battery before I left so I'd have a fully charged camera for the trip--and as it turned out, the battery I put in was 95% dead, so I barely go any shots of Thanksgiving. I need to do better next time because yours are GREAT!
