Everytime we go on a roadtrip I promise myself we won't be taking another one until we get a motorhome. Nothing super fancy. Just something with a toilet. And couches. Something like this. Is that really too much to ask?!

It might be cheaper to buy my children bigger bladders and give them Dramamine.

Anyway. Complaining. That's not very Thanksgiving-y. And I do have so much to be thankful for.

Like these lovely, lovely people.

{I'm pretty sure Lilian [my brother's wonderful wife] is squishing my head.}

And, of course, mashed potatoes.
And for this cheesecake.
And this adorable little boy. Who has had a bloated tummy since Thursday. We will say nothing about my tummy. NOTHING.

And for Emily for this adorable outfit. And for Elliot for getting the smile.

And for Claire's friend. 
(She would be thrilled to live with Grandma. She would jump up and down in elation watching me drive away.)

And you.

The end.


  1. I'm pretty sure Papa and Grandma are the most thankful and the reasons are obvious.

    (There are wrinkles all the way around my neck?!?!?! How come nobody told me before your lens did? I'm grateful for a grandma Snow and a grandma Estes who both aged gracefully and neither complained about her health or age. I always looked up at both of them in hopes that I could someday be as wise, kind, patient and think everything was funny in my old age too. )

  2. I happy (and jealous) that you got to spend thanksgiving with your family. Family time is the best.

  3. Wow I miss your family!!! They probably don't even remember me but I love seeing the pictures of your mom and sister and brother. I can't believe how big they are. Elise I can't wait to see you in December!!!

  4. those pictures are perfect! I really love the first two. and...your brothers married!!! isn't he still 12 running around the house!

  5. Wes is gorgeous, Elise! What a babe! I'm grateful for you, friend.

  6. You made the cheesecake for Thanksgiving!? You just made my year. =) Looks like you had a lovely, lovely time!!
