Another Holiday Gobbled up...

Right before the Christmas commercials begin, and the Halloween Pumpkins have all rotted away...there is this small occasion known as "Thanksgiving". It falls on a Thursday.  So I hear.

For my family, I spare no expense in providing the finest materials for my assigned "stuffing" plate and "Auntie's Awesome ButterScotch Pies":

Please note the awesomeness of the added pumpkin flavored marshmallows.  That's right, pumpkin FLAVORED, not just Pumpkin shaped.  Like I said, I spare no expense.
Car loaded, I head over to my sister's house to find this crew patiently waiting for me:
 and when auntie arrives and turns on the camera...the fun begins:
The crafts are laid out to get the damn kids out of our hair to amuse the children:
They look amused, right?
 Others prefer to play dress up in their Aunties shoes (not mine! - too high for my back):
 While others prefer some friendly competition:

 Dinner was served promptly at whenever the hell we all managed to squeeze in at the table:
 After that, more fun in the sun with the kids and various implements:

 a friendly game of Dora Candyland is going on here:
 Camera Competitiveness:
 Time to help daddy make the whipped cream!
 Ah...the glory of the butterscotch pies can clearly be seen here:
 and as evidenced from this photo, they were ONCE AGAIN a big hit:

Others....not so lucky...
Finally, the day ends and the youngest is tricked into cleanup duty:
 and here we have the photo to wrap up the day:

What? No shots of DP? Was DP excluded from the celebration? And pumpkin flavored marshmallows is just wrong
