Thanksgiving 2010

It was nice to head back up to North Carolina for the holiday.

We don't go back up there as much as we used to.  I guess SC is feeling more like our home now and with the children's busy schedule, there's never really time.

We enjoyed having Thanksgiving with my sister and her husband, my mom and my uncle.  The crowd was smaller than usual - hubby couldn't make it and my other sister and her family went to Georgia to visit family down there, but we enjoyed our smaller gathering.  It just meant more food for me.

Here are some pictures from our trip:

There's always dancing.

 Getting ready to dig-in.

 And, there's alway birthday cake. Both of our children are born during this festive time so we just celebrate with the family while we're home.

 Enjoyed time just sitting around & talking.  I told my mom when I saw her like this that she reminds me of those crazy great-aunts that you see in all the movies.

 I always help her decorate before we leave. Here's a sneak peek. I'll have more on this later.

Overall, it was a great and quiet holiday. Hope yours was too.

Now, to get my own Christmas decorations going.
