Thanksgiving 2009

I am completely stuffed. The food was delicious, as usual.  I actually did not cook anything this year. My mom asked if I would just decorate for her, and  I of course jumped on that idea!

I have so much to be thankful for this year, and I am blessed to have such an amazing family! Nick, Renee, Baby Karis, and Ben we missed you a ton! Looking forward to seeing you all for Christmas!! Happy Thanksgiving!
