All of these family pictures are a byproduct of spending 5 days with my family, something that doesn't happen often enough for any of us, scattered as we are around the country. Angela had the fortitude to rent us a house on beautiful Oak Island, NC for a week. We got there when we could, left when we had to, and had Thanksgiving on Wednesday instead of Thursday. (It didn't make us any less thankful.) My siblings are my best friends and I admire them all. Add our incredible Mom, Dad, and Grandfather, then a bunch of fearless lovable kids into the mix and you have a rollicking, emotional, charade-playing, ocean-skipping, shell seeking good time. I wish everyone was as lucky as I feel.
