Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.  It's easy to guess the obvious reason (the food) but really, I love just having everyone gathered around the table. For almost everyone, it's the official beginning of the holiday season... and a terrific way to kick off the greatest time of the year.  Over the last few years, I've been trying to focus on blessings and the positive things in my life... and thanksgiving is the perfect holiday to keep that focus. This is a group shot of our gang for 2010.  As usual, it takes hours to prepare the food and only about 4 minutes to consume it.  Then we sat around and complained that we ate too much.  We had Leroy's brother and sister and their families as well as my brother Craig and his wife Kim. Craig and Kim will be moving back to Utah next week so this was an appropriate send off for them.
