Happy Thanksgiving 2011

We had one of the best Thanksgiving holidays and breaks that we can remember.

Kim, Rigo, Elijah and Evan made the very long drive from LA.  The drive was made worse by 5 hours extra traffic coming and going, but I think it was worth it!

So we had a very sibling Thanksgiving complete with Steven too!

We deep fried our turkey again this year and it turned out as delicious as ever.  Everything was just perfect!

The boys were the turkey masters, with Todd being top bird watcher.

Maisy enjoyed dinner.

The next day we were even luckier to have Perla, Marc and Luke come and join our group for brunch.  It was so fun to see the kids together and get to catch up a bit.

The next day we took Elijah to see the Golden Gate bridge.  He's been talking up a storm about it!

Can't wait to all get together again.  We are very thankful this year for all the wonderful family and friends we have in our lives!

To you all- we love you.  Hope you have a safe and happy holiday season!

Love,

Todd, Becky, Maisy and Maren
