Thanksgiving Break!

Thanksgiving break was such a nice relief.  MR.P and I went to Seaside FL with my entire family.  Growing up we went every summer.  But eventually we got too large and stopped going.  Plus, the more people, the harder it is to coordinate everyone's schedules.  Anyway, Thanksgiving was the perfect time since we all had time off.  MR.P and I left around 6:30 am and got there around 12:30.  It was perfect timing.  We went and ate at the outdoor hamburger/chicken place called Pickles.  We like that place so much we ate there twice!   Then walked around the shops and enjoyed the start of our vacation. 

(Waiting for our food)

Once we got back everyone else started arriving!  Let the fun begin!  We walked down to the beach for a little stroll and some fun!

MR.P, me, my brother-in-law, and my brother

My cute parents

My mom and I.  How stylish is she?  So cute with her little scarf!

Me and 2 of my sisters with baby Lizzie :)

Then the babies playing in the sand!  This was the only day it was warm enough to really enjoy the sand.  That didn't stop those girls though!

We haven't had a family picture taken in years so we decided to get a good one.  We decided Seaside shirts were the way to go.  We helped the Seaside store out A TON that week!!!  So fun to have a picture with everyone!

Then we took family pictures.

The only Pelletiers left at home...great pic guys!
Sister #1 family
Sister #2 family - Gracie didn't feel like smiling!
Sister #3 family
And our oh so lovely Christmas card pic :)  We like to do funny instead of serious!

My parents with all 8 of their granddaughters!  Soo precious!

And what would picture time be without a little pantsing!  We have to pick on our brother a little since he's so tall!

So that is our Thanksgiving in a nutshell.  I didn't do any crafts with my nieces so I don't have any pics to share of that.  But I'll leave you with my favorite shot of the week.  I just love it! 

Anyway, hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with family and food :)  We sure did!

What lovely photographs. You all look like you had a great time. Eight granddaughters - are they waiting for you to give them a grandson I wonder!! Thanks for sharing your photos - wish it was warm here in Wales - it's pouring down and freezing cold.

Okay WHOA! how does Laura have a daughter that old? I feel so behind the times with just having a tiny tyke!


All your nieces are to-die-for-cute. Seriously cute.

I think it is too much that you "P" girls are continuing the trend of having all girls, too...but you and Rachel can certainly change that :)

My mom was sincerely hoping for a grandSON this round but we told her she'll have to keep waiting. At least she can commiserate with your mom!
