Thanksgiving Celebration #1

My Dad and Jake! Hmm, do they look alike? New kicks! He picked these out all by himself, so he takes after his Momma's good taste in tennis shoes :) A belated birthday present from his PawPaw(my dad).

My grandmother's tree. My aunt decided to have all of the kids/grandkids/great-grandkids, etc...sign an ornament for the tree! Cute idea, huh?

My grandmother on my Dad's side and the boys!

All of us!

What's sad is that we really don't see my Dad's family...actually hardly ever. Guess divorce does that to families huh? I hadn't seen most of them in probably 10+ years. Sad. It was WONDERFUL seeing all of them. My dad always had a very loving, giving and affectionate family. They were all SO happy that we made the trip to Louisiana! He has 7 brothers and sisters. TONS of people in this picture and this wasn't even all of them! My mom came too! Yea, his family always loved her and they were very happy she came along and so were we!

My Mom and the boys!

Jake loved playing outside with his two cousins, Jacob(who also goes by Jake) and Sawyer.

It was a nice Thanksgiving with delicious, Cajun food! Lots of laughs and visiting with family that we hadn't seen in way too long! The boys were filthy and made us laugh the entire ride home! They are so funny, especially when they are tired! And we also had to stop and let Jacob pee on the side of the road...there were no bathrooms and when you gotta go, you gotta go!! LOL

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!
