NaBloPoMo 29 of 30

Thanksgiving Day

The morning was beautiful. It had snowed during the night, so everything was white and clean and still.

My nephew took my camera to document the day. Ahh, a family holiday. Opportunity to spend quality time together, catching up on life's happenings, learning what is going on in each of our worlds, laughing together, playing games, sharing secrets and rejoicing in time together.

And then there is our family.
Ty played DS. A lot.

Grandma read. With a dog for coziness.

Ben played DS. A lot.

Uncle Mike read the news.

Aunt Mary read the newspaper.
Choco guarded the DS games when he wasn't being anybody's cuddle-buddy.

Grandpa and Kelsie catnapped.

Katie ignored homework in favor of magazines.

And yes, SOMEBODY had to cook. Colby helped me.
So that we could all come together to enjoy
