i'm darkness and light, bubbles and faerie wings.
i am sparkles and glitter, shadows and clouds.
i love purple, and faeries, and books, and music.

thankful for family (most days)

OK, it is sadly almost November and yet I have not posted about the Thanksgiving dinner we had waaaay back on the 12th of the month. Well, I sort of did, but I never posted the photos. I’m not really going to post them all now, either. But I will post the group shot (minus me, since I was taking it).

See that empty space next to Shawn, where there’s like an elephant bum poking out? Well picture me there, as that is where I was sitting when I wasn’t taking the photo. [EDIT:: I added myself! Wheee! Complete with multi-coloured hair!]

So this was the entire family, my Grandmother, my parents, my sister, her husband and my niece, and my in-laws and me and Shawn. It’s the first time we had everyone there together (the last time we tried this, my in-laws couldn’t make it at the last second and my brother-in-law was unable to come, too. But my Grandfather was there, so I’ve had two special big family dinners in my house that I will always remember!)

It was a rather enjoyable evening and I was very happy that we did it – even if it is a huge thing to have both sets of parents over at the same time. Heh. Luckily everyone gets a long well.

Can’t think of when we’ll do this again in this size, but at least I can say I did it once! 🙂
