We Were Adopted!

As the time got closer to Turkey Day, Dana and I were starting to realize that the plans we had weren't going to follow through, and we weren't going to have anything do that day.  Jen and Carlos heard of our lack of plans and decided to adopt us into Carlos's family Thanksgiving.  We took them up on our offer and had a wonderful time.  Our day started with Jen and Los stopping by our house to say hi to Rocky and hang out for a bit.  As you can see in the picture below, Carlos planned his day by dressing in the same colors at Rocky (now that's love!)

We then proceeded to Carlos's Aunt's house where we were welcomed with open arms by everyone.  The house was beautiful, overlooking a canyon.  People were scattered everywhere, talking, drinking wine, watching footbl, and of course, eating.  Dinner was super scrumptious, with tons of delicious sides, turkey, and ham, and a large array of desserts to finish everything off.  In order to make room for everything, we took a few breaks, where we took advantage of the beautiful view by taking some pictures.

And, once my belt could no longer fit around my waist, it was time for us to head home and recline our chairs in comfy pajamas and talk about how wonderful our Thanksgiving was.  Dana and I are so very thankful for the wonderful life we've been given and all this time that we have had to share with each other.  We are thankful for our loving, healthy families, our supportive, touching friends, and for all the family who welcomed us into their traditional Thanksgiving dinner this year.  We keep you all close to our hearts and love you so much.
