is exactly what comes to mind when i think about our thanksgiving.
the best food... yet.  i know... i think i say that every year... i mean it this time!
the best company... family... ever!
the best... most fun birthday cake... for little 'ol me.
the best... almost pee your pants kind of laughter.
the best margaritas.
the best green bean casserole... thanks josh... you're now in charge of that.
the best ham... i never eat ham... hellooooo... it is yummo... thanks pam.
all the food... the best.
the best cooks!
the best game of improv... we have some serious comedians in this family.

now... if i just could have used my camera a bit more darn it.
must of been too busy eating turkey... chasing turkeys... or acting like a turkey.

  
i had a little sliver of pumpkin AND cherry... couldn't resist.

 
this year the men and boys played a little ball.
i sure loved watching them...
reminded me of when we were young and we played too... sort of.

thanksgving day was the one cool day of the weekend...
crisp and beautiful.

one of my favorite things... times... of thanksiving...
is after we've had our big meal...
clean up has been accomplished...
and we just visit.
relax.
talk.
play cards.

share.

be silly.

 
nap.
do a little yoga.

 
hunt for acorns.
play.

 
just be together.

 it was the best of times... always is...
my favorite time of the year!

i found myself thinking this year...
literally...
during one of the crazy improv moments...
about the family right before me...
the family we have in other towns/states we couldn't be with...
and family who have already gone before us.
i am so thankful... so grateful for such a gift.
the love we have... the fun... the common thread.
family really is what makes life so great...
what makes our times...
 the best... of times.
