Thanksgiving Number Two

On Saturday, we had Thanksgiving dinner number two at our house. We got to use our oh-so-pretty, new-to-us china for the first time (someday I'll have to share the story about how we got the china. It involves crazy auction bidding and Dairy Queen) and everything was so pretty! Yummy, too! Especially the Pioneer Woman sweet potatoes. Oh, man--they are SO scrumptious. I'm sure when we die, we'll find these sweet potatoes on the menu at the Pearly Gates Diner, and I don't even like sweet potatoes that much.

I'm actually in this picture, because my father-in-law, Mike, is a picture-taking fool. Well, he's not really a fool, he's actually a pretty intelligent guy, but he does take a lot of pictures. Whenever he's around, I really don't worry about picking my camera up much. I know I can just get copies from him. :) Thanks, Mike!Everybody except for Colter was looking at the camera! Oh, and yes, even though there is a Christmas tree in the corner, this was actually Thanksgiving dinner. You can't really see it because the picture is so tiny, but there was some fall decor in the middle of the table. My house had C.D.S. (Conflicting Decoration Syndrome) with a Christmas tree up and pumpkins on the porch.

Here's the annual Thanksgiving photograph. Mike always sets up the tripod and takes a family picture. As I was looking at this picture, I realized that my husband wore the same sweater last Thanksgiving! The picture of us on our sidebar is from Thanksgiving 2007, and John's wearing the same blue striped sweater! The silly guy.
