No one told me where to look, ha! At least Eric and Mia are smiling good!
I couldn't even fit everyone in to the photo! So much family. So much food. So much happiness!
Feast your eyes on 18 1/2 pies (someone couldn't wait to dig in, HA!)
We spent Thanksgiving with the Brinkerhoff's this year and we couldn't have asked for a better holiday break with them! We got to visit with family that we don't get to see often (including meeting 2 exchange students from China who are in Utah for college), the food was finger lickin' good and the dessert was oh SO delish! You see... Eric's family has this thing where they shoot for having more pies than adults. This was a pretty small Thanksgiving with only 18 1/2 pies (and yes, they outnumbered the adults!) so you can imagine how crazy it gets when more family are able to make it! To be honest, I'm not even sure why they bother with the traditional meal when all anyone really wants is the pie, ha ha! I'm not even kidding! Much to every one's dismay, I really don't care for pie! Give me a slice of lemon meringue and I'm good. But this year I got to have my lemon meringue, some raspberry chocolate cheesecake that was too die for, and a heath/Dulce De Leche concoction that I've craved every day since! My belly was all kinds of happy :)
My favorite part of the holiday weekend was soaking up our time with family. It's always the BEST when Eric has work off (we haven't been able to enjoy a long holiday break in years!) and Mia and I couldn't get enough! Spending quality time with my little family + Eric's family is just what we needed! I hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving!
I had to leave you with one outtake :) It's always an adventure trying to get a family photo!
