Hi. My name is Sarah and I blog...once every three months or so that is. =)
Thanksgiving was at my parents' house this year and it was lovely (as always).
This year we had two new attendees:

Matt Wilkins, my sister's fiancee. It feels like he's been part of the family for quite awhile and we're all very excited to have him for many more Thanksgivings to come. =)

Matt and Liz

...And Stophy. Or Chris McCaffery, as those who haven't known him since he was a baby call him. He is our cousin and we all agreed that we wish we could just keep him for every holiday. Especially Jackson. Jackson was very impressed by Stoph's abilities to rake huge piles of leaves and then to hide in them, as well as his sword fighting. He was pretty devastated to learn that Stoph would not be coming to Christmas.

Stoph and I.
This is the table. We had a gazillion people this year. I don't remember the exact number, but a lot. Becky and I set the table, but really we just put things where mom tells us to. Mom can out Martha Stewart Martha Stewart on Thanksgiving any year.


The Beautiful Pierson Family: Danny, Anne, and my precious nephew, Luke.

Stoph and Becky played football. Or at least did a great job of faking it for this photo.

Dad made and then carved the turkey. He looked a little scary...uh, intense.
Oh, hey to my ADORABLE mom and baby Chase.
Jackson, Chase, and Gigi.
Post dinner we had a rousing game of spoons. Just like the Murphy reunions of ole.
Mom was pretty excited about her win!
My baby sister and I. Cheers.

Ending the night with sparklers and fireworks! Naturally. =)

2010 was a year that was easy to be thankful for. God has given us so very much and it's hard to imagine wanting anything more.
