It's nearly 2 am, and I'm just getting home from my parents'. I hated to leave so early, but I've got a date tomorrow (tonight?). I'll tell you all about it later. In the meantime, let me share a few photos from our Thanksgiving.
I just had to start with this ridiculous picture. My poor Daddy!! He was cursed with a non-existent rear-end (of course, I did NOT inherit this trait!!) which means his pants tend to droop. While he was in the middle of removing the turkey from the pan, my brother noticed that his pants were droopier than usual. So, of course, he started teasing him. He lifted my dad's shirt, and noticed that the top of his underwear was showing, so that added a whole new dimension to his teasing. He started asking him when he went 'gansta' and so on. It was pretty funny, actually. Then, as my brother tends to do, he crossed the line, and decided it would be really funny if he tucked my dad's shirt into his underwear. Now, my poor father had both hands literally full of a hot bird, so he was helpless against my brother's antics. Obviously, I decided that instead of helping my dad, I'd take some pictures of the torture!
Here's my niece, posing with her favorite cousin. Isn't my brother's dog a cutie?!
My mother sure knows how to set a table. This picture doesn't do it justice.
The antipasto platter. I know - typical dagos, right!?
I HAD to take these next pictures, just to share the insanity. THIS is what the spread looked like AFTER we all ate!! My mother only knows how to cook for a minimum of 20 people. Too bad there were only 8 of us!
Um...yeah...that ham went completely UNTOUCHED.
As usual, my brother took a nap after dinner. Don't you love how he's hanging half off the couch so that the dog can snuggle with him?
My sissy and her youngest. So sweet!
How cute are these two?
At some point, my older niece ended up taking a nap right on the floor, alongside the dog.
These two really love each other. Can't you tell?
My Sissy and Me!!
Aw...my sissy loves me. :)
I hope you all had as wonderful a Thanksgiving as we did.
