As usual, we started our holiday by gathering on Christmas Eve at my mothers house. The littlest one of all is  nearly 2 years old.  Since Tank-Tank is also the only real kid among us, all eyes tend to be on him.  Most of the night he was adorable and lovable.

This is my Thanksgiving ham. Luckily it tasted better than it looked. This year we ate at my mother's house. Tiger did a great job with the fried turkeys. In addition to the ususal suspects, Aunt BJ and Shane came up from SC and we were happy to see our cousins from Connecticut, Wendell and Beverly. And yes, that bad little boy was there falling out, in-between giving out hugs and juicy kisses. My mohter was right. The baddest kids are also the most adorable. That's how they get away with being so bad. *sigh*

But, I get it done.
