The Last Thanksgiving

I didn't mean to keep you hanging after my last post. I'm okay! I'm just back down here in Texas with my family for the holidays. I'll be back up to my studio next week. Yesterday marked the official last Thanksgiving dinner for this year. I have several that I have to attend since my family is so large. My family is absolutely strange in every way possible. I've posted our family picture below so you can see what a funky group we are. (I'm rolling my eyes even as I type this.) We took this group photo after the "guests" left, so it's just my grandparents and all their kids and grand kids. Believe it or not though I can't wait to get back to work. I just don't like sitting around all day. Well... maybe one or two days, but then I can't take it anymore. I have to put my hands into something. I'd prefer to create something, but I don't have all of my creative gadgets here with me. Later this evening my step-mother and I are going to paint Christmas ornaments. I'm not a very accomplished painter though. Perhaps I can bury my creations in the boughs of the tree.

Oh I love large wild family gatherings. It loud, fun, everyone gets a turn to be abused/shown love. And while the same story may be told over and over, it never gets old.

Your family looks like fun! How blessed are you to have a crazy family when some people (cough cough my husband's family) are very stiff and formal. I'm not sure how he ended up so goofy and fun. I didn't get to go to Bama as planned - Kat got a job at the PX and worked the whole weekend.
Hope to see you when you get back!
Come over and play!

That looks like a raucous group you've got there! But so much fun! I feel lucky that our family gatherings resemble this photo. Never a dull moment! Happy Holidays!
