We had another great Thanksgiving full of food, love and fun. We had a new addition this year (my niece's first Thanksgiving) and boy was she the life of the party! I think she enjoyed our loudness, right Emma? ;) I always make a schedule to ensure when food gets prepared to avoid eating late and having to use the oven to heat up food but every year we fail. Every year we spend too much time cooking, talking and laughing that food gets cold and must be heated in the microwave and oven before we eat. But it doesn't matter because we're together and that is really all that matters in the end. Oh and my sister's mac and cheese, obviously.

So much fun Faith, I've said it lots of times that even though we don't celebrate it outside of the USA I really love the idea of Thanksgiving and wish we did! What is bad about taking time with family to realise how thankful you are for one another?

Oh how I love seeing pictures of your family. You are such a close knit group and I love that.

Your niece is a cutie pie and all that hair.

Your nephew has grown so much and is so handsome and a total jokester. Fits right in this family :).

Sean in his little African outfit = love. He needs to do that more often

Love this post. Happy Thanksgiving to you guys, so glad that you got a chance to hang out with your family.

Faith!!! You have me salivating over here! That food all looks so yummy!!! I love that your folks put on traditional wear. A very good way to celebrate the day.

Your niece has grown! I feel like you just posted about her arrival! She is just too cute! She also has A TON of hair!!! I bet her mom is having the same "joys" taking care of hers as I am with mine :-).

Jess said...

Awww, family time. Love! and I absolutely love Sean's outfit. Pity we don't celebrate thanks giving here. But I suppose we could start a family tradition. Hmmm...
