yummy in my tummy

thanksgiving was yummy as always.  i always love having family around, it just makes the holidays that much more enjoyable.  we had "the Germans" here for thanksgiving along with my sister's family and little brother and the usual gang.  my cousins and i spent most of friday passing time waiting for my sister to get here - we didn't eat until saturday - so we went out shopping on black friday, but not really to shop, just to pass time.  grabbed some sushi and custard.  had a good ol' time... we didn't "do" a lot over the weekend but always have such a good time spending it with family.  the dinner on saturday was delicious and we played some scrabble... it always goes by too fast!  took a bunch of silly pictures and just really enjoyed each other.  of course, i didn't get a lot of pictures, cause my sister was around, but here are a couple:

no, i'm jorel

i really like halloween.  last night was no exception.  jorel dressed up as thomas the tank engine - surprised?! - i was a girl from the 70's.  we went over to the sis's house and did trick-or-treating with the cousins.  the kids had a great time and got lots of candies.  
a funny moment through the night was when jorel would go up to the door and the people would ask him if he was thomas, he would say "no, i'm jorel."  the first couple of times he said it pretty nicely, but about the last 10 minutes when someone would ask, he was a little more angry.  it was so funny.  i've been laughing about it ALL day!
i'll just show you the pictures now :)

 such fun cousins!

 mom took these pictures of our cute little fam - above is how we normally are, but below we are cooperating... i know, aren't we darling?
