Thanksgiving Recap - 2010

Our Thanksgiving was a busy one this year. We left Birmingham Thursday morning, and drove to my brother's house north of Atlanta. We arrived around lunchtime, and settled in for the day. We were able to spend the holiday with each of my two older brothers, and their families. {Each brother has four kids, so it was definitely a full house!} We also brought Winston with us, and with my brother's two Golden Retrievers, it only added to the chaos. But, overall, it was a great time!

My two oldest nieces and I were triplets for the day! We were all also sporting boots with the fuuuuurrrrr. Here's a blurry, cell phone picture of us.

For a few years now, it is tradition to fry the turkey on Thanksgiving. The boys are always in charge. I'd say they don't mind one bit...

Cajun flavored turkey!

My sister-in-law Caryn, made everyone place cards the day before. She used a small terra cotta pot, and foam, along with some paint.

Buffet style for 15 people!

After the festivities were done in North Atlanta, we headed down south to Peachtree City. We spent the rest of the weekend eating, drinking, and watching football with Bob's family. We were able to spend some quality time with some close family friends as well. Besides the Gators losing (boo!), it was definitely a great time!
