Happy Thanksgiving 2011

I gotta figure out that red-eye reduction function. All the kids look like vampires!

Gotta love the Thanksgiving! Family time, lots of food, football, movies and LOTS of computers (as my Mom so elegantly put it). Oh the joy! And this year, ALL of us kids were accounted for with OUR kids…which made for very few seats in my parents’ living room. But we managed to pull it off. Here are some photo moments from this past turkey holiday…

Kathy & Billy…a cute couple!

Mom, Dad and all of their kids

Kasey gave the turkey a “Thumbs Up!”

All the kids played…video games? Stupid computers…

Hey! Look! It’s Santa!

Taking pictures of “Dead Uncle Larry!” Don’t ask…

So much LOVE!

“Arthur Christmas” was a 3D treat

Aunt Ruth and a chimney sweep?

The morning after.Β

    Alan, I just LOVE seeing the family pictures. I wish you would identify the two girls. I can ID you and Frankie Joe, and Ruthie and Kathy, but I need help with the other two girls. I remember the names, but which is which.
    I, too, had ALL of my family (just 11 of us) home for Thanksgiving for the first time in years, and I feel so blessed. Mason and Angela had to head back to Powell in early afternoon as Angela is in retail for Target and she had to go in at 11:30 p.m. Thanksgiving night. Bummer.
    I love looking through your square glasses at the world with you.
    Check out our Herald website and you will know where I was yesterday morning. http://www.mchnews.com
    Your former neighbor,

      Hi Sara! Thanks for checking out my blog here. I try to keep up with it whenever I can but sometimes my life is so busy it gets difficult. Anyway…my siblings go like this…

      Ruth Ann, Mandy, Kathy, Frank & Amber.

      Glad to hear you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I would love to see Mason again someday. I’m working an Ohio State game in January…maybe I’ll give him a call.

      Take care and thank you for reading! πŸ™‚

    Sara: I am the VERY pregnant one. πŸ™‚ Alan: Miss you so much! We had such a great Thanksgiving again this year. Erik was sad he didn’t get to see you guys again before you left but we promised he would see you soon. Hopefully he calms calms down about Ava and Christopher, he really loves them.
