And seriously, I see where he gets it from. LOL!!! We had a great time, and honestly, Shane surprises me by willing to hang with a couple of old ladies and have a great time doing it.
That's why my boy is my favorite youngest son!

Sigh..........................It was a great time. Food, fun, friends.......Life is good.

is totally appropriate. The challenge was to do a layout on traditions so I chose the Murphy tradition of getting together on Thanksgiving - no matter what.
As the parents aged, the “3 girls” continued the tradition, rotating each year. And everyone brought a dish or three. And as their children and siblings grew older they brought a dish or three as well.
UNTIL 2009 *gasp* I know. A daughter stepped up and had the holiday at HER house.
Amy, Kathy’s daughter opened her house to all and sundry. And it was a blast. Because well, her and her husband have ALL the cool toys and enough room to keep the kidlets occupied. Which totally rocks. She did break tradition by NOT cooking the turkey at her house. Which can be forgiven because a. she really doesn’t cook, and b. did I mention they had all the cool toys to keep the kidlets occupied.
We did try to vote because of the cool toys that they host it every year. They could’ve been outvoted lol!! I’m looking into that.
However, with the advent of 2009 another change was made, in that 2010 Terry will not be celebrating with us, as we lost her early this year. It makes the holidays so different and she is missed. Another change that is happening much to everyone’s dismay, is that divorces are occurring which leaves gaps and the question who is going to step up to continue this tradition. However for right here and now. The Murphy tradition continues and we will be making it as long as we can.

- Do you burn candles in your home? If so, what is your favorite scent?
- What was the best vacation you can remember?
- If you have a wedding album, how often do you look at it? Where is it stored?
- What is the thing your treasure most about motherhood?
- What is your favorite day of the week and, why?
- Are you doing anything to be more "green" or earth-friendly?

So all that chirping, dipping and whirling went on and my camera sat on the desk. Sigh. I've tried stalking and capturing the birds to no avail in which case I've come to the conclusion I'm not a stalker (unless its the fedex man with scrapbook kits) or capturing so I decided that I'd just take pleasure in watching. And I did for awhile. But OMG! a challenge. Not above failing because
