Thanksgiving 2011

You all know me, I’m not a big holiday picture taker. I really did try hard to remember to pull out my camera but… failed. haha. Yesterday I only took pictures of my family at dinner right before we ate (at 3pm) and that’s it!
Today I snapped some during lunch since we were having leftover Thanksgiving and I also remembered to snap a picture of the kids’ art project they did yesterday.

Thanksgiving wasn’t anything extravagant. I’m sicker than ever today (and yesterday) and really feel like total crap. And I don’t want to go on and on about being sick because after three weeks (is it four now?) it’s getting really old to talk about and I’m sure to hear about! ha

Not a one of us in this family likes turkey so Allan made the decision to BBQ steaks! haha, so not traditional! But it was perfect!

Some of Thanksgivings past. I couldn’t resist, I love looking back πŸ™‚
2005, living in Maricopa, Arizona (Allan was 27, I was 22, Brooklyn was 2 and Sierra was born just over a month later!):

Even then, we weren’t turkey lovers. We had a roast chicken!

2006, we were living in Texas but flew to Washington to be with my family (Allan was 28, I was 23, Brooklyn was 3 and Sierra was 11 months old):

2009, living here in Arizona, went to Allan’s parents’ house (Allan was 31, I was 26, Brooklyn was 6, Sierra was 3, Payson was 1 1/2):

  • I LOVE the flashback posts. Oh little Brooklyn!! What a swettie. I really loved seeing the pics from when Payson was a baby…I can remember seeing those posts the first time you posted them! So hard to believe it's been that long ago. My mom was looking over my shoulder as I read this post and she commented on how young your mom looks(ed) in the post from a few years ago. πŸ™‚

  • Good grief!!! Is time really flying by that fast?!? I can't believe you used to live SO CLOSE to us! We were supposed to be getting together right before your move…I remember seeing so many of those pictures from older posts when I first found your blog! I'm so sad that yall moved out of Texas before we ever officially met! I loved seeing the pics of Brooklyn so little! My goodness, the days just slip away don't they? They are all so adorable! We just put up our tree tonight and I was thinking how CRAZY it is that it feels like yesterday when it was just me, Rusty, and Lyle. Now…Lyle is 21, Mia is 8, Mag is 5, and Levi is 4! Say what?! Slow down time!!!
