I couldn't just pick one...

After looking through all the images from the wedding, I thought it would be fun to put together a slideshow of a "few" of my favorites...Enjoy!

Thanksgiving Leftovers....

Ty has full-blown pink-eye.

I thought I did...but nothing like poor Ty:(

Instead, I threw out my back....BAD.


Lifting an oddly shaped microwave that weighs about 60 pounds while trying to talk on the phone.

Darn my obsessive need to double-task!!!!

We're a pathetic couple over here today.

Thanksgiving, Pink-Eye, and the Rhino

This year, Ty and I made the trek (along with Ty's mom, Lynette, who flew in from Oregon) to New Mexico to visit Ty's brother and family in New Mexico for Thanksgiving. Despite the long drive-time back and forth, the trip was great! It was the traditional Thanksgiving: Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, Green Bean Casserole, a Peach/Raspberry pie...and a side-dish of Pink-Eye. It's like I always say - Can't be a holiday without some Pink-Eye:) Just kidding! Our nephew, Carson, woke up with it one morning and then proceeded to pass it along to far the rest of us have managed to walk away without being infected, and hopefully it stays that way!

Anyhow - I am bad and didn't take as many pictures as I would have hoped, but did manage to capture a few...

Lynette (before the attack of Pink-Eye) as we hit the road, trying to get a pic with Sir can tell he was so interested in having his picture taken:

That's more like it...all ready to go!

I thought the next two pics were funny, cause Ty and Raleigh almost have the same facial father, like son...except in this case, I guess it's like owner, like pug??

See what I mean...hahaha...

And now for the the newest addition to the Jelinek family, Troy and Tracy's family pet bulldog, Quincy...I swear he walks like a rhinoceros cause he's so big and cumbersome, and he's only 5 months old! I can't imagine what he'll be like full-grown!

Our night out in Sante Fe, we went to the acclaimed Tomasita's...where we had to wait for an HOUR to be seated...the food was so-so, but they had a great deal on drinks, particularly their Sangria, which was amazing! Ty and Troy opted for Corona's instead:

Tracy and I knew better...note the full carafe of Sangria in the background:

The whole gang...I can't believe this is the only group-type photo I manage to get the whole weekend? *Sigh* Better than nothing, I guess!

And last, but definitely not least, here are my hands trying to push the dog "cousins" in for a picture together, they were not feeling it...

Haha...this was the best I could do! Aren't they cute?

And that does I said, I wasn't on the photo-taking train this time around...I'll do better next time, I promise:) Can't wait to see pictures and posts from everyone else of their Thanksgivings! Hope you all had a wonderful day...can you believe we're only 24 days away from Christmas now? Sometimes it's hard for me to get in the spirit when it's still over 75 degrees outside... but I've been watching Elf and White Christmas, lighting Spruce-scented candles, and listening to 99.9 (the "holiday" station) non-stop, so I think I'm almost there!!!

Yeah, it's kind of like that...

After the long-ride back from spending Thanksgiving in New Mexico, I went out to check the mail, knowing it would be over-flowing with ads for Black Friday and such...and much to my surprise there was a package from our wedding photographer, Ben Quillinan, inside. Excitedly, I tore open the package to find a pretty little red box, inside the pretty box was an even prettier red leather case with a picture of Ty and I from our wedding day on the front...and the gift inside was even better...Can you guess what it was???

Our wedding DVD! All the digital files are officially ours and I can hardly contain my excitement:) It's funny how even though our wedding was over 1.5 years ago the pictures still manage to get me so excited! As I looked through some of the digital files, I saw this picture, and I couldn't help but think I must look something like this as I look at our photos...

Yeah, it's definitely kind of like that...
