Thanksgiving 2014: Cold Turkey

CRW_6824 CRW_6841Hey, Happy Thanksgiving. Minnesota had a cold one. I did some very light research, and it possibly the coldest Thanksgiving in MN since the 30’s. We started the day at Alan’s Uncle’s house, sharing in some good times and catching up with that side of the family, then raced towards my parents house for the 59th (!) Royce Thanksgiving. We had to stop by our house first though because I forgot the camera. I almost couldn’t document ANY of this.

By the way, you like that clever title? Get it because it was really cold yesterday.

There doesn’t seem to be any stopping the baby boom in my family. I don’t think there’s been a time in the last 3 years (at least) that a Royce cousin has not been expecting.

Unfortunately we didn’t have all the 3rd generation there, hopefully next year, where there will be even more.

Tomorrow it’s ON with Christmas.
It’s so on.

BTW, if you, like me, enjoy constantly looking to the past, you can see how my photo skills (and indeed my editing) have improved since a year ago Here.
