Thanksgiving 2011

We were so looking forward to Thanksgiving this year because baby Hunter would be with us and also my whole family would be together. I have one brother who lives in California, another who lives in NY and nieces who all live in NY so you can imagine it's not often it works out that we are at the same place, same time. Everyone traveled to my parents new home in Northern Virginia and the quality time began! I'll let the pictures do the talking :)

My oldest brother Matt is a marine and was deployed last Saturday. Thanksgiving was bitter sweet for him and his girls. The quality time was something to be thankful for but I know in the back of their heads thoughts of having to say goodbye soon were there :( He's such an amazing dad though!

After hours of playing outside and waiting our 23 pound turkey was finally ready!

Saturday we had to say bye to Matt. Joe, Hunter and Dad went to the UVA VT game in Charlottesville and the rest of us relaxed at home.
Hunter V cheered on the hokies from nana and papas.
