Thanksgiving was Rockin

We went to my sister Tina's house. This was the first time since I got my own place that I haven't hosted Thanksgiving. Tina is pleased that she has her own house now, so I was glad to take a break and support that. It was yumtastic, and I only wish I'd taken pictures of the feast before everyone busted into it.

This is me with my beautiful sisters. Lyzi's on the left, me center, and Tina is on the right. We all get along swimmingly now that we're grown and not living together.

Tina's boyfriend, Adam, keeps his drums at his buddy's house across the street, where they hold band practice. So Eden had never seen them before. She ran and immediately jumped on them. We heard her from the kitchen, and I asked, "Is that Eden?" My mom said, "No, I think Adam's showing her how," and then Adam walked in from a different room. She was just a natural!

She tore it up, let me tell you. I know I'm biased, but she blew all our minds. That's a three year old who can hold a beat. Josh is convinced she's a savant (minus the idiot, of course). Eden hopped up there and played for *hours*, singing, "Fire...fire on the mountain...fire...fire on the mountain..." Apparently those are the only words she knows, but it was still cute. Especially since, when she finished up, she'd cry out (all proud-like), "Please welcome to the stage, Keller Williams!"

That's my girl.

She requested that I go to the car and get her cd, so she could actually sing along with the words. She did a great job.

And sissy snuck in a turn on drums...

Although she spent most of the time doing what Ivy does best: grooving

Here's a bonus picture of Lyz:

She takes great pictures. Seriously, you should see her MySpace Ho shots. She's not a ho, of course, but that's what I call those do-it-yourself MySpace photos. Lyz takes spectacular ones. I apparently don't.

Here is Tina trying to entice me to do the chicken dance to Eden's beautiful concert. Unfortunately, I was laughing too hard and had to pass. It was much better in motion.

A fun time was had by all. And I realized that, despite the fact that I share Tina's half-mexican blood while Lyz does not, I'm the whitest of my siblings. I will be trying a tanning bed soon, methinks.

Oh, you definitely should. I forget you miss out on those. Your work is something weird, huh?

Well thanks for the comments and hugs! I always love those. :)

What great pictures! You're all so beautiful. Eden and Ivy are just adorable.

Thank you so much!

I'm glad to hear from you! I was just thinking of you yesterday. I've kept you on my reiki list. I hope you've found it helpful.

Thank you so much! Hopefully it will be pictures of you, next, if I can get my computer to stay on long enough to load them to flickr!

Go Eden!
Thanks for putting these up.
They're great.

Thank you! What an apt and slamdacious icon.
Dec. 5th, 2006 09:24 pm (UTC)
I do make an effort to be apt in my iconitude.

I try to, too. It's a noble and creative quest. Sometimes I fear I'm too subtle.

Sometimes I think you live inside my brain.

Thank you! It was a blast. She wants a drum set for Christmas, but that's a gift you just can't hide. We might compromise on bongos for now.

We did surprise the kids w/ drums last year, and they were astounded - fascinated - wondering where we had hidden them (Santa is ancient history around here). In the garage attic! shhhhhh.....

They used them for exactly one week. If you can make it up to MD, you're welcome to the set! We bought them second-hand from someone who had the same experience. Pass it on....

Re: drums
Oh, awesome! If only I could make it to MD. :( Thanks for the offer, though! Only a week? That sucks, but at least you got them second hand. Maybe I'll look around and see if I can find any more local.

Thank you for stopping by! I love your username. :-}

That's awesome. I'm glad you had such a fun thanksgiving!
Dec. 4th, 2006 06:54 pm (UTC)
Thank you! It was loads of fun. Can't wait for Christmas now...

Great shots, thanks for posting them.
Dec. 5th, 2006 05:48 am (UTC)
Thank you so very much! I'm glad you like them. I think the last one and Ivy overwhelmed by the drums are my favorites. :)
Dec. 5th, 2006 02:21 pm (UTC)
But she has such a great look for a drummer! the wild red hair, the face, completely consumed by the moment. She's a natural!
Dec. 5th, 2006 04:22 pm (UTC)
Oh, you mean Eden. Thank you! We're going to try to get her some sort of drum for Christmas, but I think I'll hold off on the huge set until she's older. Hopefully. I'm afraid Josh wants it as much as she does.

So so cute. I love the microphone pic the most. *hugs*
Dec. 5th, 2006 05:49 am (UTC)
Thank you! She's a little ham-bone. I'm pretty sure she gets that from me.

Thanks! They're definitely something special, that's for sure.
