Thanksgiving 2009

We've had such a marvelous Thanksgiving weekend, and I gained 4 extra pounds just to prove it. We're so thankful for family, especially this time of year. I'm particularly grateful for my cute nieces and all their hugs and kisses and fashion sense.And they are super grateful for their cell phones :) Caught yaI'm thankful for these fine rugged gentlemen who carve the turkeys, take the pictures, sneak taste tests of the food-to make sure it's safe of course, and buy the popcorn at the movies. And I'm incredibly thankful for these beautiful women who make the pies, and the gravy and the sweet potato "brownies"-hence the 4lbs. I'm so lucky to have a wonderful mom and sisters who give me unconditional love and support.I'm also thankful for this little munchkin who endured no less than 4 hours of me pinching her chubby thighs, kissing her chubby cheeks, and blowing raspberries on her chubby stomach. She's the spitting image of her mom at this age, and I couldn't help but feel like I was 8 years old again and "babysitting."PS-I know that my pictures are grainy/pixelated. What I don't know is how to fix it. Blogger and I are not seeing eye-to-eye on this.

when u post a picture, check its HTML code, and replace the S400 by S800, and u will see the clarity in ur photos.im not sure if it will work in new blogposts, but yes in old format, definitely works!!

I bet most thanksgivings across america had teenagers waiting/texting/slouching at the table eh?

Rush, I have been changing the code to s800. However, it still looks pixelated. Any other suggestions?

Thanks!!
