A Thankful Thanksgiving

Today is one of the happiest days for me all year...because why?  I get to spend it with the people I love...

My parents and my Uncle and Aunt

My new Mom and in loving memory of D...Daddy

My beautiful and ever so classy sister-in-law

My wonderful and silly brother-in-law

My spoiled baby

My other spoiled baby

Today is my dad's 60th birthday.  It fell on Thanksgiving day, which is a great excuse to party extra hard!  This was from a couple of years ago...but his favorite gift he can get is alcohol...whiskey to be exact.  Here he is admiring our gift to him a couple years back.

My dad's lived through the Chinese Revolution, he's been sent down by the Chinese government in his teens to work on farm lands, he's come to the US with nothing in his pocket and now he's living the American dream with WHISKEY!!!  And what is he missing?  A good working television set.  And this year, for his 60th, that is his birthday present to us.  A new flat screen HDTV! :)  Happy Birthday Dad!  I can't wait till you open up your presents.  

And of course, the person I love the most is my hubby.  This is our first Thanksgiving as a married couple!  Kisses and hugs to my baby!  The picture above was taken at our work event back when we first met in 2007! :) we've....aged...ahem....and grown together.  Love you!

To all my readers, have a wonderful Thanksgiving!  I am truly thankful for all your's really what keeps me going with this little blog of mine.  :)

Now...gobble's time to eat!
