Like every year before this one my family gathers at my parents house. As you arrive you see my mother and little sister Breanne dressed in aprons running around stirring this and cutting that and not soon later the house will fill with loud voices and small laughter of the children running and playing while the adults sit and talk.
and before we can eat my mother makes sure that the colors of fall surround the table... the forks and the knifes are aliened perfectly... the food is spread out across the buffet table so when the time comes we need to not worry about a thing.
When it comes to the turkey the last couple of years it has been prepared by my little sister and she takes pride in how moist and delicious it is... she even makes sure that no one touches it before she knows that it is in fact ready to be eaten.

and of course as the time comes to eat the turkey my dad is there to cut the perfect pieces...
We talk and laugh make fun of each other and tell stories about what has been going on with us even though we all saw each other the week prier.
we go back for second... thirds... fourths even fifths until our pants are tight and our bellies are full.
As this thanksgiving comes to a close I know that the one thing I am so grateful for is my family.
they have been there through the ups the downs the I hate yous the I loves you the I need you and the simple just be there times.
with out them my life would be nothing but the daily mundane routine which would not be a life at all in my eyes. I love that we are so close that we make sure to see each other on a weekly bases.
So this thanksgiving I just want to make sure that my family knows that I love 'em... love them so much... every single one of them.
