Happy Thanksgiving...(belated)

This Thanksgiving holiday we celebrated on Wednesday (the day before the actual holiday). We all went to my Sister-in-law's house and chomped and chomped and chomped. Angel and my Brother-n-law, Steve, both fried turkeys.
It was nice to be with family. There was a feeling of "something's missing" because there was.
Grandma Imelda isn't there for the holiday seasons anymore and I think we all felt that.
The day after, we packed up the kids (as usual) and took off to the beach to do some much needed fishing (as usual). This time, we booked an awesome room for 4 days and 3 nights. It had a separate room which consisted of the 2 queen beds and a TV in that room. There was a living room and a full kitchen and dining room.
WE WERE CHILLIN!!

Dom automatically made himself comfortable and I was jealous!

Miah was anxious to set up my laptop and get started harvesting my crops!
(ok, so she was coerced a little bit)


Angel sat in the chairs and didn't want to get up. I sat in mine and didn't want to get up either! Truth be told...we stayed in that night and just enjoyed being around each other.

The next day, we took the kids to a secluded place (which almost forced me to slam Angel's truck into 4 wheel drive). I swear, where Angel took us is where dead bodies usually end up. No Joke. It was eerie!
Miah was in a kick-boxing mood and decided to pretend to attack everyone.


Devyn was ready to fish!


There's Miah with a sneak attack on Dominique.


Dom hates taking pictures but we have a rule. He has to smile for any picture I want because otherwise I will throw a fit!


Miah was in such a loving mood. She was always hugging the boys.

I don't know what's up with Devyn's crazy smile but I still love this picture! They all look so happy.

The next day was another fishing expedition. This time we went to a more public fishing pier (that we will never go on again because the cost of just bringing our poles on the pier was outrageous).




Angel was prepared with his SUPER-ULTRA-MEGA fanny pack and his off roading ice chest.

In the distance was a pirate ship that took customers on cruises. It shot gun powder out of a cannon that made this loud BOOM!

It was windy that day and we were afraid that Miah's hat would fly off.


Daddy helping Miah set up her pole so she can start bringing home the grub. Everyone has to start earning their keep around here!


Devyn knows what to do...if he wants to eat tonight!


I'm not a professional but I love when I catch a fish.


ANY FISH! (I happened to be the only one to catch something at that time)

Dom is setting up his pole.



Miah stopped fishing first and then Devyn followed suit. We were supposed to go to the beach so that they could play in the sand but it was getting late and colder so we had to go straight back to the room.
We enjoyed ourselves there and it was a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend.
Thanks to our cousin CYN (<--click here) who house sat and fed the pets for us while we were gone. That alone took a load off of my mind.
NOW.....
We got the Christmas tree up.
What is it about this tree that causes this reaction???

That is a copy cat (get it?....copy cat) of last year's tree episode. (<--click here)

THIS SECTION IS DEDICATED TO MY MOM!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!
I'M GLAD YOU GOT THE BIRTHDAY GIFT I SENT. I HOPE YOU GET A CHANCE TO PIG OUT!

I would kill for one of these. Of course, in my household, I would only manage to get a grape and the kids would tear the rest of it up!
That's it for now folks. I will keep you updated when my lazy ass kicks into gear!
Have a good one!

MomTJ: For some reason the cats always climb in the tree and sit there. Onyx has all of the ornaments all over the house.
I like catching any kind of fish. Even the tiny ones. Angel says it's not fishing
