Thanksgiving in NC

We drove a pleasant 6 and a half hours to North Carolina, Thanksgiving morning.  No traffic, everyone was already to their destination, I suppose?  The kids were splendid.

We got to Stephen's Mom's in time to eat the lovely dinner she cooked for us!  Then we just kind of leisurely hung out, played and talked.

The next morning, she made the "official" Thanksgiving dinner.  Stephen's Dad, twin sister, Charity, her boyfriend and her 4 kids came.  The kids had a wonderful time with their cousins.  We really need to get out there to see them more!

Here's Nana with half her grandkids...

And Papa w/ half of his....

Stephen & kids with his Dad...

The next day we went to the annual family reunion of all the descendants of Stephen's great-grandfather.  I only took a few pics...don't know how that happened!...

Iris likes her Papa...ALOT!....and Uncle Ray's pretty cool too ;)

Here's Stephen's Dad's twin brother, Bruce and their brother, Ray.

After that, we went and hung out with Stephen's wonderful cousin Joey and his wonderful wife, Tammy and their kids.  It was so much fun, but once pictures???  What's wrong with me?

Anyway, it was lovely and we miss them all, already!
