We had a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving full of family. Most all our California family (which seems to keep growing) came in for the occasion and for Honey's 80th Birthday party. It was fabulous having so many of us together. Needless to say there was lots of good times and plenty of laughing.Adam, Dani and I took a trip to the zoo. Little did I know Adam wanted to spend an hour at EACH animal videoing them :) This picture truly captures his excitement for the whole event.

Adam and his girlfriend, Dani, pushing him into his beloved flamingo bay.

TCU vs. UNLV -- Go Frogs!!

Mom and me

Adam and I took Dani on a tour of our childhood. This is our little hangout, AdAsh. Yes, it is a drainage ditch. No, Adam is not peeing.

Our delicious Thanksgiving meal at Mom's.

Adam and Brent playing in the snow...these pictures truly capture their true personalities. They make me laugh constantly.

The boys ready to play disc golf in the snow. Dimitri clearly has no idea what these other two are about to get him into.

Disc golf or dancing?

The 5 cousins. I feel this picture really captures us well...Adam and Brent (bosom buddies being silly), Me (laughing), Dimitri and Jill (happy to be here).

Angelo's -- Uncle Ted insisted on wearing his cowboy hat everywhere. Loved it!
Angelo's -- It was so great getting to spend so much time with Brent and Kim.
My other half -- Jill

Kim and Brent -- I love this picture of them.


Recreating the most awkward picture.

The kids -- Me, Dani, Adam, Kim, Brent, Jill, and Dimitri
The boys did a good job of handling our constant pictures.

Honey's 80th Birthday Party. It was a wonderful time (Linda and Kim did an amazing job organizing) with great people loving on Honey.
Adam and me -- California agrees with him...but I miss him.

Jill and I at the Louden's most beautiful Christmas lights!


Brent spelled out HONEY with his body for her birthday. Hilarious!
