. . . for Lauren and Lauren: How to have a good Thanksgiving

November 26, 2012

How to have a good Thanksgiving


1. Don't waste any time taking an outfit picture.  Consider a family picture even better.

dress: old navy   necklace: carolineg  boots: dsw 

2. Chase your niece and nephew around to try to get a picture with them.

3. Once you catch them don't give up.  Even if they cover their eyes or don't look at the camera.

4. Count your self very lucky when you finally get a good one.

5. And even luckier when they jump into your pictures without being forced.

6. Take at least one picture of your meal.

7.  Do lots of sitting around, watching episode after episode of Friends or admiring a fire and Christmas decorations.

8. Be so thankful that Christmas is four weeks away and you get to do it all over again!

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I'm with you: Why bother with an "outfit post" when you have to include a few extra accessories?

Turkey (left gut) - mom
Yams (right gut) - sister
Apple pie - grandma

...etc
...etc
etc

Looks like a wonderful day for you and your family!
