Hey everyone - Ashton here. My mom asked me to do a guest post on Thanksgiving since she's having a hard time keeping up on this blog, so here we go. (Oh, and if you want to read about Halloween, my mom finally posted Eliza's post about that here.)
Thanksgiving this year was pretty awesome. We spent it at my grandparents' house in Park City. The Carvers (my second cousins) came, too, which was fun because I rarely see them. Some neighbors from Mexico also came. They were really nice. We ate the usual Thanksgiving things - potatoes, turkey, gravy, corn, pie, etc. The food tasted great, and we still have leftovers.
These are some awesome people.
And here we are with my mom's high school picture. Nice hair, huh?

The beautifully set table - Grammie knows how to make things perfect.
People lining up to dig in!

they used to play together all the time when they were little girls.

A big ol' gorilla. Watched him watch us. Then watched him picking his nose and eating it until that got too gross.
Thanksgiving this year was one of the best ever. I had so much fun, and I got to see my second cousins. Thanks Grammie and Grandfather!
To end, here's a video Grandfather made - all about our thankful list and shows lots of the prep and cousins and everything:
