turkey mayheim

this thanksgiving has been discussed for a while now. my side of the family traveled down from Washington and we filled every day of their 5 days with us. the pictures really say it all but i want to state very clearly my gratitude for having a family that is a bit nutty, fun and loving. we always laugh a lot when we are together, we know eachother's imperfections and it doesn't matter because thats what family holidays are all about.

a couple things i dont want to forget: while delivering the treats the kids decortated to the homeless people, one man said that these brought back family memories. cheering on Lincoln at his bball game--there was a sense of family pride, playing duck-duck-goose outside of Hartnell was a nice memory too. also, jeff was quite the jokester as he handed out the presents, watching the cousins completely enjoy each other, and all the smiles, laughs, and hugs that were shared--that's really what the holidays are all about.
