True Confessions Tuesday: Late Thanksgiving Edition

True Confessions: I don't LOVE Thanksgiving food.

Please don't hate me, I know I'm an anomaly.  It isn't that I dislike turkey or gravy (actually I kinda hate gravy) but I just don't love it the way everyone else does. I think my main problem is this: I don't eat lunch because we are eating dinner at 2pm... then they put the appetizers out. I LOVE APPETIZERS. By the time dinner rolls around I already have one button undone on my pants. Every year.

Maybe I'll learn next year.

I know Thanksgiving was over a week ago, but I had a bit of a blogging hiatus and I have yet to post about it. We had 21 adults and 3 babies in my not-so-mansion. It was amazing. Please enjoy this photographic representation of our day (and disregard my terrible point-and-shoot camera...we are working on it.)

 {The day started with giant legos and spaceship jammies.)

 {My niece is taller than me.}

 {The young people table, the young-ish people table, and the old people table. Sorry I called you guys old people.}


 {Why yes she does have a cold.}

 {Cute boots.}

We tried to get a picture of Nana with her great-grandbabies. Things started out civilized...

and then slowly...

we lost it.

I can't wait for next year. I'll eat less appetizers. Maybe.

I'm guest posting over at The Paper Mama today! Chelsey is doing a fantastic series on 50 Days of DIY Christmas and I was so excited that she asked me to be a part of it. Go check me out! (If it isn't up yet, check back later!)

*UPDATE* - Looks like my post has been moved to Wed, Dec. 7th. I'll let you know when it goes up, but in the meantime, go check out all of the other great ideas!


  1. I don't really like Thanksgiving Day food either. I like turkey, but I pass on stuffing, cranberries, green bean casserole....and I don't like PIE. Sue me!

  2. Do you both have little wine colored boots?! too cute!
