Sure, thanksgivng and holidays in general aren't my cup of tea but I love an excuse to take a day of work to spend with family!
We would take something old and tired and common — coffee — and weave a sense of romance and community around it. We would rediscover the mystique and charm that had swirled around coffee throughout the centuries.

after staying up until 2am & getting up at 7 to get everything going my sister & I decided we earned a coffee break before everyone woke up and started to arrive.
This was the highlight of the holiday for us!
In order to get a photo of the adults my niece took some photos for us but each of cut someone out so unfortunately my parents didn't make the cut but these are 3 of my sibilings & spouse's.
Yummy thanksgiving dinner… my favorites are turkey, mashed potatoes & gravy and stuffing.
My stepfather just about to carve teh turkey. (its an iconic photo & I wanted to be sure not to miss it this year)
When my parents come into town they always bring a bunch of veggies & meats from the farm and I'm pretty sure this squash weighs as much as my nephew!
I helped my littlest nephew (soon to be second youngest nephew get ready & he just couldn't not wear his little dragon costume, I certainly wasn't going to stop him, I mean seriously how adorable.
The weather here in utah was perfect we spent most the time outside.
A highlight of our family get togethers is the conversation. it varies from politics, reminiscing, books, movies and of course there is plenty of teasing!
Right now its hard to say where I will be for the holidays next year, I only know I'll be here in Utah until April but after that I just don't know, maybe I'll be here for the holidays, but thats not really the goal… it would be nice to spend another summer here though
