Thanksgiving Fun!

This Thanksgiving we went to my parents house. It was a fun & too short of a visit as usual. Although after the 13.5 hour drive yesterday all I can say is it is nice to be home and out of the car. We didn't actually celebrate a traditional Thanksgiving on Thursday because my brother, the chef, was cooking for about 250 people! Instead we went to my Aunt Laura's house & had a fun Thanksgiving of mexi food & ritas!! We did our traditional turkey & all the trimmings Thanksgiving on Saturday! Here are the pics:

On the way down to Texas Tuesday night we were able to stop off & get a few shots of this amazing sunset:

Saturday night, our Thanksgiving...where do I start?

Marcus & Emily (Marcus being goofy & Emily looking pretty):

Group Hug/crazies:

Nat & Marcus wanted to have some fun so they built a potato gun! By the time it was completed it was dark, so Emily had the brilliant idea of the ever so fun glow stick. So basically we were shooting glowing green potatoes hundreds of feet into the air....ahh what fun!

The gun:

The green glowing juice a.k.a.: a glow stick:

Loading the potato:

We definitely made a racket, but it was glowing good time!

On the way home in New Mexico we saw the glowing orange moon rise at an incredible speed...this is the best I could do, doesn't really do it justice:

P.S.....These were taken from our front yard the Sunday before Thanksgiving, just liked them & wanted to share:
