A family pic!

On Thanksgiving I gathered the grumbling fam together for a pic! (they aren't really thrilled with family picture moments - they just humor me!)
It was a beautiful snowy day and I had all my kids together!  What could be better than this?!?!  Nathan is looking fabulous, Brandon was home from college (with his no-shave November look) and looking handsome, Emily -beautiful as usual, and Randy and I - well - just looking a little older and VERY blessed and thankful!

We had Thanksgiving dinner at Randy's parents.  Randy's mom is such a great hostess and has quite a large brood to feed (she feeds us one Sunday a month with no help - amazing lady!).  This year we had to move to the garage to get us all together!
Dad even donned an apron - I love it!

It was a blessing to be with the family!  We were missing Darren (who will be home from Afghanistan in 2 weeks! and Kristin who had to work), but my heart was very full being with family!

Thought I'd better post Thanksgiving pics before we get too "deep" into the Christmas festivities!
