la famille

Most of my mum's side of the family dropped in on Saturday for an early Thanksgiving fete. There was eating, swinging, football spiraling, chasing after dogs and children, analyzing of the officials' calls during the Auburn game, a nap here and there, plus the showing off of some impressive four-square skills.




My cousins and their wives are so good with my children.







Needless to say, the kiddos are now pining after a puppy.




{Apparently my improvised camera-stand wasn't quite level; just tilt your head to the left a few degrees. And try not to notice the lovely poses of those two children up front. Their mother should really do something about them.}







Ah yes, the four-square games. My cousin Kyle would say things like, "My rules are: slams, twists, dirty bombs, 360's, full spikes, inverse tornadoes. And I have no idea what any of that means." An afternoon to remember, indeed.


I am blessed.

You're in luck!! Just today Jeanie P. asked me if you guys would be interested in a puppy. They have seven to get rid of. So just say the word and I'll bring it with me when we come for Thanksgiving.

Oh yeah, it's part Lab. No problem right?
