Thanksgiving 2011

Well I have to tell you that I love pictures. In the past I havent been good about putting them on my blog because it was a pain and I couldnt comment after each one easily. Thankfully Blogger has updated and now I can. So this is a picture post. 

Sorry I had to delete the pics off my blog, I have decided to keep my blog public no matter how many hateful comments I get. If I made my blog private it would defeat the purpose so instead I will just delete the pictures and refrain from using names in attempt to keep things safe for us. 
Me and the girls made Pumkin cheese cake from real pumpkins. They are to young to carve pumpkins at Halloween so I let them help me clean this one. 

Lily climbed up on her sisters chair all by herself. TODAY IS HER FIRST BIRTHDAY!

Every year at Thanksgiving we put up our Christmas decorations. Papi always helps put up the tree and I do the ornaments with them. 

Alana took this. Im making Deviled Eggs. Not sure why Im making the turtle neck. lol

Alana wanted to take a picture of our Thanksgiving decorations. lol

Papi was off on Thursday and I wasnt so he did the Turkey. He did a great job. 

Only one of the five or six people we invited showed up but we still had a lot to be Thankful for

This year it was Joslins turn for the Angel. 

Yum!!! We had mashed sweat potatoes, green bean caserol, rolls, gravy, deviled eggs , the turkey and the cheese cake. 

Lily started walking with the assist of her toy the day before her birthday!

THE WISH BONE. Here I am explaining it to them. 

Joslin ended up winning. The bone was a little wet I guess because they had to practically wrestle over it to get it to break. 

There you go folks yet another normal part of my life in Mexico. We missed having more family around but all together it was another great Thanksgiving.


  1. Looks like it was a great day. I think part of getting to a "normal" life here is realizing that you can still do the same things as if you were in the States. For me, for the first year or so of me living here I concentrated too much on where we were. Once I just started living and doing "normal" everyday things, things just felt more natural. Glad to see you have gotten to that place.

  2. And it looked like a Blessed Thanksgiving, I missed you all even though I was in the middle of a lot of people. Love you all soooooo much, but God loves you so much more. Love, Mom

  3. Looks like you guys had a great Holiday.Great photos. Happy Birthday Lily!!
