Giving thanks in a big way

We had a fabulous Thanksgiving celebration this year. We went west to Boyd, to my grandparents house, and gathered with aunts, uncles, and cousins for a Thanksgiving meal that of course included singing, picture-taking, and football-commentating, ahem, football-watching.

Caleb and I planned ahead and made the fruit salad the day before. He loved helping stir the pistachio pudding into the cool whip and watching it turn green.

Here are a few of the highlights from photo-overload-time. Seriously, there were *at least* five cameras snapping pictures all at once.

These are my cute and sweet Grandparents. One thing I love most about these two people is that after 54 years together, they still laugh. A lot. And flirt with each other, and giggle, and poke fun. Such role models of how a marriage should work. I think the subject of laughter in this picture was a slapped behind... I won't say who did the slapping.. *gasp*

This is my mama and all of her kids. The last time we'll all be together for a long time! Mom's about to start a missionary assignment in Africa for two years, and Melody and Naeole are moving to Hawaii in December.

Our little family.. it would've been a great picture.. if only Carly had smiled.

Here's an actual picture.. again, Carly wouldn't smile. She's two, you know.

These are all but three of the grandkids and great-grandkids of those two cute old people. 13 grandkids, 2 married-ins, and 2 great-grandkids in all!

Sweet times with my fun and huge family! 23 people in all for Thanksgiving dinner, and great memories to take home and treasure.
