Thanksgiving was with the Picketts this year...and it was a smashing good time!  We decorated cookies, went to the zoo, jumped at Sky High, ate ridiculously good food, and enjoyed each other's company A LOT!
I only posted this picture because the look on Maren's face in the background is PRICELESS- clearly her excitement over cookie making (eating) comes from her mother!...although Kelly enjoys the eating part too...
So many fun things in a day = one tired Hailey!  Thanks for being her pillow aunt Mimi!!
This may have been Kelly's favorite part of our trip (or maybe a close second to snowboarding!!) Yes folks, Kelly is driving the backhoe!  Jake (the landscape Architect in the family) had a plan for my parents' yard that required some real muscle...good thing Kelly as there :)
Images from Sky High...
A basement with wall-to-wall trampolines would Perfect for Addison!!  So much energy dispensed!!
And now to the photo shoot pictures... Thanksgiving morning we all dressed up for family pics- but Papa tested his backdrop on the kids first.
And good little testers they were!
I guess some were better than others...
So sweet
Here's our best family shot!
And the happy couple...
Pickett Palooza!

And now to the important part of the holiday- deliciousness! Casey deep fried a turkey this year (check out pic at the end of the post!) and it was SO YUMMY!
Who doesn't love "the trick?"  Maren and Owen do!!

It rained almost everyday, but didn't dampen our spirits!!  We had a GREAT time! thanks family!! 
Happy Thanksgiving!!

looks like great times always with your FAM! i have to admit i'm a bit jealous. we still are the only family members on the east coast. it gets a bit lonesome to often. but, it is what it is!

happy for you to be all together especially during the holidays!
