Something I learned today: Zumba is incredibly difficult when you have gravy coursing through your veins. Like me, this week.
We just finished "Thirdsgiving"--our third Thanksgiving meal in four days. It's the price of being well loved I guess.
Despite the extended fullness and utterly predictable my-pants-don't-fit whining, I feel incredibly blessed. Huge thanks to the chefs, and all of our family and friends who helped celebrate.
And of course, a few snaps:
|Marm's beautiful table. We enjoyed the "crackers" aka glitter bombs with small presents, crowns and trivia inside.|
|Caramel apple pie, if you please.|
|Me and "little" brother Joshua.|
|Eric John, not thrilled to be posing.|
|Tim and Marm.|
|Ray-dad and Mom-5.|
|Tiff and Carl. |
|Charming, as always.|
|Meena could use a Grumpy Pug meme.|
|In case you wonder what a 30-pound turkey looks like.|
|Legs that wouldn't be out of place at Medieval Times.|
|Master carver, Lisa.|

|Pre-dinner conversation and apparently the end of my photography for the evening!|

|I'm telling you, Grumpy Pug. She could be famous.|
|B, Marm and Meena. |
|Me and Manda.|
|B and LJ who is apparently not pleased that I keep teasing him about loving Christmas music. |
|We should be at Disneyland!|
|When pugs attack.|
|Prime rib. It's what's for Thirdsgiving.|
|Yeah, that's garlic. No vampires visiting our house tonight.|
|Heavy hangs the head...|
Annnnd, here ends my last National Blog Posting Month post. Woo!
|Really wish New York and California were closer together!|
