A Cajun Thanksgiving

We travelled again for Thanksgiving… this year we were back in Louisiana. We stayed at Mom’s and ate TOO MUCH yummy food.
 
Noah wanted to help Sweetie cook – he knows that yams are part of his heritage! :)

The weather was SOOOOO nice that we spent most of our time outside. I was excited to smush this little face.

Aunt Holly had the same idea – and she went for two at once!

Gracie couldn’t let the boys steal all of the snuggles, so she did her best to make her rounds and entertain us all!

My little yeti brother was the official turkey fryer. I guess the beard increases his wisdom and skills, because he did an amazing job. That turkey was DEE-LICIOUS!

Turkey frying must be really hard, too, because he had to take a nap afterwards.

Michael decided that that was enough rest for one day, so he stole his Daddy’s hat.

Paw Paw came over to spend the day and sample the goodies.

He promised to come back the next day to boil us some seafood! YAY!

And boil he did. YUMMM! I got my fill of shrimp and crabs and I was in heaven!

Unfortunately, I had to share with this guy.

While Paw Paw was cooking, the boys played some football.

Go long!

Noah decided he was done…

because Aunt Holly had PIE! It was finger licking good, apparently!

The kids crashed at the end of the day, except for Noah, who spent some time curating his social media.

I was looking through pictures after we got home and I remembered that another little boy wore the same shirt for Thanksgiving back in 2007.
 
I knew I recognized those cheeks from somewhere!

Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone! Gobble, Gobble!
