Thanksgiving 2011

I alternate spending Thanksgiving with my mom and dad every other year.  This year my brother and I were scheduled to be with my mom.  We always go to her mother’s house, which is only a few minutes away from our house.  My mom’s three sisters, one brother, and the spouses of those who are married all attend, as well.  We only have two cousins, unfortunately, out of all of my mom’s siblings.  We still have fun, though, and the cousins play outside while the adults cook the meal; this usually includes my cousins and brother (all boys) skateboarding and me taking action shots of them with my camera…After we eat, we always play a game of kickball.  Sounds cheesy, I know, but it’s always so funny and usually competitive.  This year it was pretty cloudy all day which was a bummer, but we still played our game until it got dark.  I don’t think we kept score this year. Probably because there was a hole in the kickball…

I wish our turkey looked this good...I didn't get a picture before it got destroyed.

My uncle's wife made turkey cupcakes like these this year. So cute.
