Thanksgiving Moments

The annual family photo. Son goofing off, daughter big cheese and me and husband totally looking in the wrong camera. I don't need to tell you, I hired someone to come this past Saturday to take our Christmas card photos and they went kinda like this picture. Do all mothers sweat while trying to get Christmas card photos? I was burning up.
Son learned to ride a bike with no training wheels! Thanks to the older cousins and Uncle Micheal he had a Thanksgiving we will never forget. He was so proud of himself.
The original Papa Roach and husband. Notice the orange and blue. This was before the destruction of Iron Bowl 2008 or as I like to refer to it as the day of mourning.

Daughter with her two older cousins. They are all grown up! One has a girlfriend and the youngest weighs as much as husband! I remember the first time I met them they were running around in their underwear throwing balls at me! Now they are my lifesavers at family gatherings and daughter has finally warmed up to them!
And after a long day in GVILLE daughter went sound to sleep with a sales paper. After this photo, me, Bre, mother and grandmother went to the Winfrey to sleep and shop. No one slept. Bre wanted to spoon all night and kept moving her pillow around. We were up at 3:45 and in the Galleria a little after 4:00 am. We laughed all day. It was the most fun. But I am still tired. Wish me luck this week, JINGLE BELL RUN in 6 days.

Joey looks really amused at the picture taking. My favorite part is Bre trying to spoon you. Was she trying to get fresh or was she asleep and thought you were Joseph? I'm not sure if I want to know the answer. I would have liked to have seen the 4 of you bunked up at the Wynfrey.

That is NOT TRUE AT ALL!!!! Once again, a priceless picture of Joey and love the one of MG sleeping.

Love the picture of MG sleeping but where is her seat belt? Doesn't it go over her shoulder? You been talking to Jaclyn? (Love ya Jaclyn if you are reading this!) I can't even look at the picture without cringing!

So glad you had a nice Thanksgiving, and what fun it sounds like you had shopping! I am so proud of Tyler for learning to ride without training wheels, we had to put the boys back on... they never learned to stop and were getting afraid to ride their bikes... maybe in the spring.

I'm so glad I got to see the effect of No Shave November! Good luck with the run! I'm sorry my husband left you all hanging. He is excited about still getting a Team Roach shirt. Sounds like you had a fun Thanksgiving!
