we spent thanksgiving at my parents home this year and i know i am always in for a good meal when my dad is involved.  he is quite the chef.

before we began stuffing our faces, we went around the table taking turns expressing what we are most thankful for.  most everyone was thankful for family (and why wouldn't we be? that is what life is all about) but my sister kayda was just keeping it real when she said she was most thankful for her phone but than followed with family.  she is an honest teenager.

we  had a really great time sitting around the table talking, laughing, eating, and drinking our traditional martinelli's.  once our bellies were full, we cleaned up and sat around and talked on the phone to our family members who live afar.  the kids ran around playing and somehow ended up in the dog cage at one point.  it's pretty hard to keep eden and jonah away from animals.  later, we filled our bellies some more with an assortment of desserts.  jonah realized his love for ice cream and was not a happy boy when it was all gone. it's safe to say that this day was all about food and family.

there are so many things to be thankful for, but really i am most thankful for my little family and my big family.  we are so blessed!
