You know how when someone has a new baby or a new pet, and they keep wanting to show you pictures of it? And you know how you politely 'oooooo' and 'ahhhhhh'? You know, right?
I'm basically that obnoxious person with a new camera. I'm taking far too many pictures, and will show anyone who will oblige me. I can't help it though, I'm just THAT excited about my camera.
So you can only imagine me with it on Thanksgiving.....
Trying to capture my moms table setting...(all the girls get an ornament from Williamsburg, and a tin of her homemade fudge)
And the food.
All the glorious food!
Hands down, my favorite meal of the year!
And how good does this bird look?
Paul is the MAN.
And he makes a great turkey.
Besides food, there are two other F's that make up Thanksgiving.....
Football of course.
Anywhere you looked, a game was on.
And the last F is of course family.
Honestly, there's no description needed for these pictures.
It's just our family
Doing our family thing.
All the while I was practicing with my camera settings
On any willing participant
Or any unknowing soul.
I'll always remember this Thanksgiving as the one with the new camera.
Just as I'll always remember my mother and her gloves. Oh, those gloves.
Thank you mom for our holiday traditions.
And thank you dad for the traditional 'round the table photograph. As much as we moan about it, I think it's pretty awesome.
Thanksgiving 2012, brought to you by the letter F and my new camera.
