Thankful for family

Thanksgiving at my parent's house in Central Texas was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! A chance for family, young and old, to get together and enjoy each other. We stayed up late at night, talking, telling stories, playing spoons, laughing, and eating!

The weather was absolutely gorgeous! We had plenty of time to sit out on the deck and enjoy the sunshine and the view of the lake. Erin and my mom enjoy each other's company and both like to clown around in front of a camera. I love this picture!

Mom was SO happy with all of her family home. All of my cousins have lost both of their parents and mom has become the matriarch and the glue holding all of us together. How wonderful that their lake home holds all of us AND that we all enjoy spending time together.

I'm truly thankful for my family!
