Thanksgiving weekend with my family :) {mt. pleasant tx, family photographer}

November 26, 2012

This past Thanksgiving weekend was so nice; that’s just the best way toΒ describeΒ it :).
On Thanksgiving Day, some of mom’s family came over for the day. Before it got dark, we took a few family portraits outside :). Here’s my parents whom I love :D.
And here’s my grandparents (mom’s parents) whom I love as well :D.
Papa and Mamie :D.
Haha, and here’s my cute sister in law, Emily :D.
Here’s all of us!
And here’s my family :D. I like how Jay is holding my elbow. Haha :D.
After most everyone went back in, we stayed outside and I took some pictures of Daniel and Emily for fun. Hehe :D.
Lovely :D.
Happy brother :D.
Emily was drinking this coke and I was inspired to take a few pictures of her and Daniel with it :D.
Emily makes some of the best faces. Hehe :D.
Daniel too. Haha :D.
My siblings :D.
The next day, my cousin Cara, her two sons, and my other cousin’s son dropped by the house to visit and play :D. Here’s Dad with Rhett :).
And here’s Keller! He had never jumped in a leaf pile before, so I showed him how to rake it up and then jump in it (or jump over it as he discovered he liked better later. Hehe :D).
Oh, I also showed him how to fall backwards in it :D.
There’s their beautiful mamma: my cousin Cara :D. Who is pregnant with their third boy!
We had a blanket outside to enjoy the day on :).
His middle name isn’t “Rocket” for nothing :D.
After they left, I had some fun in the pile too. Hehe :D.
Our beloved Junior :). She’s the queen ;).
And our sweet Buddy :).
Jay really likes holding the cats. Hehe :D.
Found a cricket! Looks like he’s reading “Motorola” Haha.
Then Saturday, we went to visit my Dad’s younger sister and her family in Longview (where Daniel and Emily live!) :). We took some pictures outside while the light was still pretty :). Here’s Daniel being my test subject. Hehe :).
While we were waiting for everyone to make their way outside, Daniel took some pictures of us girls :D.
Here’s my cousin Jordan’s little girl Greer!
She’s cute :D.
And here’s my pretty cousin herself! πŸ˜€
Love love love πŸ˜€
Here’s her husband Taylor :D.
Then my cousins Jacob and Christian joined the group :).
And here’s the Stringer family! (plus the Bledsoes πŸ™‚ ).
Then we got one of all of us :D.
Praise the Lord for such a relaxing and enjoyable weekend :).
With a smile,

    Okay, so I've read your blog for a couple of years and don't know if I've EVER commented. πŸ™‚ I just have to ask, in the last few photos, is that a knife clipped in your pocket? If so, that takes you from really awesome, so pretty much my best friend, you just don't know it yet. Haha. Anyways, I LOVE your pictures. Always. All of them. πŸ™‚
