We had another great, big, dual-family Thanksgiving out at my parents' farm in southern MN this year! David and I are lucky enough to have two families that live close enough together, and like each other enough, to get together to celebrate Thanksgiving as one big, crazy group! In between prepping food (I made two pecan pies and this amazing raspberry butter upside-down cake, with homemade whipped cream, of course!), opening many bottles of wine, watching football and Gopher basketball, and playing a couple rounds of Pandemic, we managed to sneak in some family photos for this year's Christmas card. Too bad the hubby is currently sporting a 'stashe and a shaved head for Movember - oh well, we're just going to have to work with it. Here are a few shots from the day - hope you had as wonderful of a time as we did!

 Mom miscounted how many people were coming...dad and uncle Jon ended up eating on barstools by the kitchen counter!
 The long table...two pictures because it sat 14!

 David and his uncle Mark, smoking cigars outside.
 Taylor's "turkeys," which Mia kept asking for (at first, we thought she actually wanted more turkey meat...but no, she quickly corrected me by saying that she wanted the ones with OREOS)!
We even got to spend part of the weekend with our good friends, Laura and Gabe, back up in the cities - we managed to sneak off to the last Gopher football game of the regular season, but left at half-time due to the cold!
