First up…Thanksgiving at my sister and brother-in-law’s house! Mark, myself, our three kiddos and my parents spent Thanksgiving at Amber and Steve’s this past year and it was so much fun! It was nice that we were all together and able to pull it off! So…while Amber was cooking up a storm in the kitchen, I began to set-up my “photo shoot” in their formal living room and then I realized that I had forgotten my tripod. Have no fear, though….I made one…out of aluminum foil!! I rigged the foil up like a tripod and steadied my camera on their stair’s hand railing! I quickly called everyone in and ‘summoned’ them to their places — while the kids whined and complained about it! Mark and I ‘nicely‘ explained…”that they better sit there and smile with the biggest grins on their face…or else!” Haha! It worked — besides having to drag Grady into it at the last minute before the shutter went off because he refused to have his picture taken! We even managed to get Steve & Amber’s dog, Bruno in the picture! The only problem we have now is that my sister is pregnant with their first baby, so this picture is only good until April when we have to do this all over again with the newest member of our family (who will bring on a whole new level of difficulty)! I cannot wait!!
Here it is! My family…
