giving thanks

We took the non-traditional route for Thanksgiving this year. We met up with our Richmond "family" at Mimi's Cafe, most of us adults donning our ugliest sweaters.
Highlights: Josh Furniss in the red, lady's sweater, and Josh Miles still being willing to come even though he broke his collarbone that morning at the Turkey Bowl. Thank goodness for Lortab.
Perfect time for Doug to grow a creepy mustache, right?



The only time I spent in the kitchen was when Doug and I made the ugliest pumpkin pie of our baking careers. It was great to be free of the cooking and the cleaning, and it was a nice chill day... perfect for introducing Addy to turkey and counting our many blessings.

And you really thought that last picture needing no explanation?! Looks like a fun (minus the broken collarbone) low-stress Thanksgiving. and thank you for sharing Josh's sweater with us. That is fantastic.

This was so much fun! We love our Richmond Family :) You guys are hilarious!! It was pretty funny walking into the restaurant with all our HOT sweaters and watching people stare at us, lol. When I saw what sweater Josh got, I knew it would be funny, laughed the whole time we were getting ready to go, haha. I loved Doug's mustache too, pretty hilarious. Fun memories!

This warms my heart. So much in fact, its something I'd like to start doing annually. And that pic of just your little family is the funniest/creepiest pic I've ever seen. The turtle neck totally completes it.

The mustache and sweater combo is quite perfect!
