Thanksgiving Week: Part 2

Thanksgiving Day was finally upon us and we were all so grateful and happy to be under the same roof together to celebrate it….we were sad that my brother Jeff and his family couldn't be there --but understanding that they were spending the holiday with his wife's family this year. 

My precious nephew Otto…his sweet smile melts my heart.  He had fun posing for me while I was trying to get the settings on my camera ready. 

'Ole Brent Lee…the best pose he could muster before lunch time. ;-)

The kiddo's having a ball exploring outside before we eat some turkey…

Ready to chow down on all the yummy food...

My beautiful mama…she never ceases to amaze me.  Always does such a wonderful job of hosting all of the family. 
My brothers…love them bunches!!

The kids wanted to eat outside so we threw together a table for them… 

We so enjoyed our Thanksgiving Day (and week) at KiKi and Pop's…
I love my family dearly and am so thankful for the love and close friendship I share with each of them. I'm always so grateful when we can spend time like this together. We laugh together…tease each other endlessly…talk about old times…and inevitably even shed a few tears when reflecting on the more tender memories we shared together over the years.

Yes, gathering together like this is always a tender reminder for me of what's most important in this life.  It just seems to always put life back in perspective …. refine my focus….and for me that has always been about my relationships and love for my family.  

And so after we wrapped up our fun Thanksgiving week in East Texas…we all headed to Dallas to celebrate my niece Lola's baptism before everyone headed back to their own homes.  I'll share more about Lola's special baptism day in my next post.

Until then…
