Thanksgiving 2008


Here is just a glimpse of my favorite tradition ... Thanksgiving at my Grandma's house. This year everybody was together for the first time in a long time (except for Gary who showed up right after the family picture). If you click on this scene, you will see some funny expressions and lots of fun detail ... but just look at my Grandma (in the lovely blue shirt)! She's a babe!

I love going over to her house, I love her food, I love her soft, rust carpet. This picture is priceless to me because it not only encompasses our whole family, but it is presented in front of the home that has brought me nothing but good. I hope that I can be one smidgen of the Grandma that my Grandma has been to me!

ok, i am commenting on the header picture...i saw that one in action and it turned out fab! kudos to Gary the vigilante of the "hood" for tailing a suspicious dude who turned out to have "some issues..."
UROCK GARY, JUSTIN AND CYNTHIA AND BRANTLEY! we should have taken advantage of the time until the cops got there to give him a book of mormon...darn! where was my head?!

I know, isn't Grandma McKinnon (and her house) the best? Love that orange carpet.
