Thanksgiving Recap

We had a nice Thanksgiving holiday this year. We went to Cleveland to have dinner with my dad, Renee, siblings and family. Since Rondell had to be at Best Buy in the middle of the night (I mean, 4 am...same difference) we only stayed for the day.

My friend Marja and her sweet Mila came with us too.

Here are Caleb and Mila in the back of the van. They were pretty cozy, except this picture makes me realize that Caleb is ready for the next size car seat. When did he grow?

Once we got to Cleveland our first stop was our friend Melanie's parent's house. Mel was in town from NY and it was really nice to see her. Melanie and I have been friends since the 3rd grade and we met Marja in college. They are like sisters to me...I love them!

Jamison giving Mila some love!

Renee and her baby...oops, Evan. They have a neat relationship and I love to see their open communication. Evan was home on break from college and I think we grew while he was there...and got some facial hair. He's grown into such a great young man.

Here's what Evan ate for Thanksgiving.

Evan and his peeps. I remember coming home for holidays and getting together with my HS friends. Seeing all of Evan's friends come over took me back to the good old days.

My kids stayed in Cleveland and this was the scene when it was time for Rondell and I to leave. Rondell brought their car seats in and they decided to sit in them in the middle of Nana's kitchen. Caleb is blurry because was he was on super geek and wouldn't stay still. I see I need to work on my camera skills in that area.

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving as well. I'm off to our meeting place to pick up my babies. Happy Saturday!

It sounds like you had a great Thanksgiving! Did Rondell get what he was going for at Best Buy? It was crazy at the one down here...I didn't even try to go there!

It's really tricky to capture kids with no flash. Sometimes I want to look of a flash-free photo but sometimes I really just want to capture the moment, so I use the flash.
