Thanksgiving Fun!

My sweetie and I and our sweet little granddaughter, Madison. Look at that big smile. I just love that little girl.
Here are my other three girls. My youngest daughter Christina and my niece Stephanie(who is like a daughter to me) and my oldest daughter Melissa(aka Maddie's Mom). Aren't they so pretty?
I just thought this ice sculpture of the turkey was so cool. I took about four pictures of him. LOL
This is my Dad, who takes us all out to eat every Thanksgiving and there were around 26 of us at the Thanksgiving dinner. He's with Maddie and Melissa.
And I thought this was a great shot of Maddie looking at herself in the big mirror. I wonder what she was thinking.

Well, we had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner with the whole family. These are just a few of the photos I took. I think my family is starting to hide from me whenever they see me and my camera come around. LOL I got an early Christmas present, a new Sony Cybershot PINK camera. It is so cool and I'm having alot of fun learning the ins and outs of it. It's a touch screen and they even engraved my name on it for free. Anyway, I ate way too much food but did so enjoy the dinner with all my sisters and Dad and their families. I know alot of people can't even imagine going out for Thanksgiving Day but we've been doing it for years and the place we go to really does a nice job. Last night I had our little family dinner and that was full of fun and laughter, but that is for another post. Hope you all had a wonderful time also.

Hi Joan! I came here through Kellan's blog. Nice to meet you. I think it is a great idea to go out for Thanksgiving - my mom works way too hard making the meal! I also love the Tuesday Travels idea. I'll have to stop back on a Tuesday sometime.

These are beautiful photos - your daughters and dil are lovely, stunning and your granddaughter is gorgeous. I love ice sculptures, aren't they amazing? That was one turkey that didn't have to worry about being eaten up. Oh yes - I tend to take my camera on every outing, as inevitably when I don't, I miss out on 'that' shot which would have been perfect.

Looks like a good time was had by all, Joan. And what was Maddie thinking? Why, she was wondering who the beauty in the mirror was! I loved the ice fact all the photos were great and you do indeed have lovely daughters!

Great pictures, Joan. Your dad looks wonderful, as do your girls and you and your sweetie. And Maddie - well, come on! She's adorable and that's just all there is to it! lol

(Everytime I see anything PINK, I think of you! I've seen PINK cameras all over the place and I always wonder if you've got one. Now I know! lol)
