Words alone cannot fully express my thankfulness for having a houseful of family and friends. This was our first time hosting Thanksgiving, so I made a few pictures of the process. We had a wonderful time; sharing stories, sides and of course that delicious smoked turkey.

Any pictures of me were taken by my wonderful mother in law. Brownie points!
