what a match is to a nuclear bomb.
It's an absurd mischaracterization!"

It's Tradition!

It started in 2003. I had been sick for over a year and then had a hysterectomy just weeks before Thanksgiving. I was stuck on the couch while the family took over the job of cooking Thanksgiving dinner.

While the preparations were going on, Chris sat down and we started holding the camera up and taking pictures sitting together. It was a fun for us both and It helped me keep my mind of not being in the kitchen.

We've done it every Thanksgiving since!!

This year, was the first year since 2003 that I did anything more than make the gravy (my family says I'm the only one who can make the gravy) :-) But Chris and I found a few moments to keep up our yearly tradition - though, it's amazing to see how old we've both gotten in 5 years!!!

Today, I was very thankful for my family. Very Very Thankful for each one of them - Bill, and Marie, and Ellen and Chris!

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving too!
