Happy Turkey Day!

Kinley's first Thanksgiving was so much fun! We were with the Harrison's this year and we had a blast starting traditions. Because none of Ben's extended family lives in Texas, they are very used to stretching holidays out over a few days. So, to make it feel like a true holiday, even though we live only like 3 miles away....Ben, Kinley and I packed up and spent the night before Thanksgiving at Gram and Pops with Uncle Alex. We laughed, played a lot of cards (specifically Pinochle) and ate way too much! But, we had a blast celebrating and feeling like we were on vacation!

Uncle Alex was trying to get on Kinley's level and experience crawling with her...he found out it is hard on the knees.

Ben and Alex thought the best way to start Thanksgiving morning was to shoot the bow in the backyard...and they were thrilled I was taking their picture.

Ben found this fantastic shirt to wear that was in his old room. It is has a picture of me on it that he wore for my surprise 18th birthday party. My friend Kristen made them for everyone. Blast from the past! So cute!

Even though there were only 5 of us plus Kinley, we had SO,SO much food!...a 20 lb. turkey, dressing, a honey ham, party cheesy potatoes, sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, 2 kinds of 'fluffy stuff', cranberry sauce, hawaiian rolls, and 3 kinds of pie (butterscotch, pumpkin, and chocolate). Haha!

Alex is representing what we all felt like after all that food!!

Thanksgiving Day was also Gary's 59th birthday! It was so fun to have double reason to celebrate! Happy Birthday Pops!

Thanksgiving night we moved the party to our house and Honey and Boss came over to eat the 3 kinds of pies and watch the A&M vs. UT game. Great game...sad the Aggies didn't pull a win out. But, Kinley was a true supporter and kept trying to do the Gig Em sign!
