"Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things."

Every year for Thanksgiving, I forget to pick up my camera and take pictures. This year was no exception. There we are, all together. Beautiful food, cute kids, happy smiles, and ... no pictures.

I guess it's a testament to really having an enjoyable, relaxing time if I forgot to pick up my camera. No regrets there.

Except for the third or fourth helping of pie.

A few tiny regrets there.

Nope, I take that back. The pie was so delicious, it was almost worth the calories.

Thanksgiving evening, the girls went outside to "help" their Grandpa Allen rake leaves. That translates into them making a giant pile to jump into, which I'm pretty sure was what Grandpa had in mind in the first place...

I see grandpa's smile...

I think that foot belongs to Ellorie:

They also had fun playing with a giant tumbleweed they found.

I might just interject here that it was COLD outside, despite the beautiful day. It started to rain a moment after this, and was probably in the low 40's. Most people here would call that cold, but my girls were adamant that they were warm enough in t-shirts and sandals.

Mason was inside playing a boxing video game with his dad and uncles. Also entertaining, but not so film-worthy. Rylan was playing so nicely with his little cousin Kloee. I do regret not getting any pictures of that. He had a fun time playing with little people just his size. He's getting to be a little more friendly lately.

It was a wonderful, peaceful, relaxing Thanksgiving, though I really missed my out of state family. I have so much to be thankful for. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving as well!

I am always the same on Thanksgiving. I never, never take pictures. It still looks so green in Washington. No wonder the kids think it's warm enough for t-shirts.
