Glimpses of my Thanksgiving

{the best picture of the family we could get considering the horrible photo conditions. I think half of us are either squinting or fixing our hair}

{12 cousins. One for every month of the year =) }

{ my lovely aunt audrey making her famous roast chicken. I could go for some right about now}
{my cousins trisha and ashley insisted on making a box of Funfetti to help further induce our food comas}

{uncle jim pre-carving the turkey}
{my homemade pumpkin pie that I will make again and again}
{our famous pumpkin rolls. The recipe is a family secret ;) }
{our FEAST}
{walking off all those calories}

I decided to take a little break from my finals misery to post these photos from Thanksgiving. I feel so lucky to have spent the entire day with my family. Since everyone is grown up now, it's been getting harder and harder to get the family together, but no matter how much time has passed, it always seems like we've never been apart. The Santiago family definitely knows how to party. We never fail to have a good time ;) I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones. I'm already looking forward to Christmas!!
