Thanksgiving 09

This year, we went to Danny's grandmas early in the day. It was such a beautiful day! I am so glad that it didn't snow- I hate trying to get to dinner on time in the snow- so nerve racking!
And it was so warm that I got to wear my cute new jacket, and not my puffy winter coat. All the aunts and uncles and cousins and grand kids were there- it is so fun to see everyone! And the kids just grow up so fast I hardly recognised some of them. We sat with Danny's sisters, and his dad. When Danny and Lindsay get together, they just joke and laugh and have fun. They are so much alike, it's crazy! (She is like 10 years younger, and she didn't grow up around him. So when they do stuff the same, I think it's so funny.)

Danny and Lindsay, laughing at Fail Blog on Lindsay's new phone.

Danny's other sister, Chelsea and her boyfriend Zak.

We went to my parents house for a smaller feast in the evening. (it was just our immediate family and Gramps. So many leftovers- I loved it!)

My sister Lindsay and her favorite pastime...olives on the fingers.

Yum! (she did this a few times)

And after dinner, Lindsay just had to play Wii with Danny. She just loves him, it's so cute. BTW she kept winning. I thought he was letting her win some, but nope. She really has Mario Party 8 down!

My mom and me putting all the food away.

I heart my mom!

Gramps (my mom's dad) and my mom.

Pumpkin Cheesecake. Mmmmmm.

I had so many leftovers, they fed Danny and I for 2 days! It was so wonderful! Good food and all I had to do was warm it up or put it on sandwich rolls!

I am so grateful for my families- I kinda can't wait to add a kid or 2 to them!

  1. It looks like a fantastic day! I love that Lindsay does that with olives! Doesn't the kid in all of us still want to do that sometimes!? I sure do!

    PS... your cheesecake was amazing, as usual!
