I’m a little behind on our blog updates, mostly because I haven’t spent as much time in my office or at my home computer(s) as I used to.  Of course, everyone knows the reason for that and I’m sure they’re just fine with it.  😉

So I’m trying to get back up to speed as quickly as possible and I’m starting with our Thanksgiving update.

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, and the 2008 edition absolutely did not disappoint!  The festivities actually started quite a bit early as Chris decided it was time for a new tradition, the Thanksgiving Throwdown / Iron Chef (a tribute to Bobby Flay’s Food Network shows).  This year, the target of the Throwdown / Iron Chef competition was… cranberries!  So Chris and Mel set out to one up each other with cranberry recipes.  Trash talking started early and never relented; the stage was set.  In the end there could be only one victor and Chris won the day with his very impressive Cranberry Salsa.

After the judges rendered their decision and we ate all of the evidence, it was time to head to our second Thanksgiving stop of the day.  As usual, our second stop turned out to be quite a bit more subdued than our first as we spent the rest of the day relaxing, talking and hanging out with family… while they all hung out with Bree.  😉

As always, all of the pictures in the gallery below are on our private Flickr feed.  If you would like access to the pictures, with the ability to get them in digital or print format, check out my previous post with instructions on how to get access.

Bree is now more than 10 weeks old and there have been hundreds of pictures taken of her by us… and many more by other people… and most of the time people want to actually see those pictures at some point.  So today, since I was home, I set out to get all of our pictures uploaded, categorized and tagged for easy searching.  That way, anyone who wanted pictures that we had taken could easily get them.  And by get them I mean you can:

  • Search all of the pictures
  • View them in categories
  • See any size, up to and including the original hugemongous size straight from the camera
  • Get prints of any pictures you like
  • Turn the pictures into wallpapers for your computer

Sounds great, right?  Well, there’s a catch.  You have to do a little to get a lot in this case, which means you have to have a Flickr account and get in touch with me on Flickr so I can give you permission to see the pictures.

There’s a couple of ways we can make that happen.  If you don’t already have a Flickr account, I can invite you directly by using your e-mail address.  So if you want to be invited send Mel or me an e-mail and I’ll get your invite sent out soon.

If you already have a Flickr account, even better!  Just send me a Flickr message to ask that I give you permission to see the pictures (and videos).  If your username isn’t something obvious that I’ll easily recognize, let me know who you are… otherwise I may just assume you’re another one of those crazed Taylor Hicks fans looking for my pictures of Taylor Hicks playing with The Allman Brothers Band here a while back.

In order to whet your appetite and hopefully entice more of our family and friends to get on Flickr, I’m including a gallery of some of the pictures we have uploaded.  You can get all of these, in high quality surround sound, once you’ve signed up for Flickr and gotten added as our friend.  Neat, huh?
