Because I've left a lot of people who have participated in my life lately out of my blog.
We made the rounds for Thanksgiving, big-time. Which makes sense for us, because that is what we are most thankful for - these connections we have to our families and friends. So on Thanksgiving we went to MILs for the standard spread:
On Friday we grazed leftovers at ~L~s while the kids ran in and out of the house in full-play mode:

I have some pretty decent pictures of our placenta lab, but not everyone wants to see that (classmates of mine, I'll email them out).
