My mom has always gone all out for Thanksgiving, with so many different dishes, you can hardly fit samplings of everything on one plate: turkey, mashed potatoes, candied yams, pineapple & cheese, jell-o salad, carrots & cauliflower, pomegranate salad, green salad, crescent rolls, & stuffing. And of course for dessert, she makes so many different kinds of pie: raselberry, pumpkin, apple, chocolate, coconut, banana, & then bread pudding by special request.

Dennis & Gail came up for the celebration.
My dad carved the turkey.
Will fed his cousin, Carter, in the high chair.

Scott had to work a 48-hour shift the 2 days before Thanksgiving. He was exhausted when he got home.
Trying to force-feed Will some turkey. I think he's going to be a picky eater.
Will is officially walking.
After dinner, we took a break down by the trampoline. My dad opted for the cement slide rather than taking the stairs down.
It was so much fun watching Will jump on his knees & walk on the tramp - he had really great balance!

Jumping with Mama
Will loves the swing.
Aren't the leaves beautiful?

My brother, Brad, has a thing about forcing his kids to learn their abs at a young age. Wes was very serious about keeping his body straight.

Nothing says "fun" like a napkin.
