Thanksgiving 2009

'Twas the night before Thanksgiving and all the girls went for pedicures. Sweetie Peach and Kitty got penguins painted on their toenails. Thanks Mimi for treating us! Afterwards the kids got to each pick out a new Christmas tree ornament and then we went out to dinner (thanks Papa!).

Right before the feast Uncle Jeff treated us to his famous version of "Choppin' Broccoli" (a la Saturday Night Live). Here you can see Kitty thought it was hilariously funny (which it is).

Patch before heading to the buffet table.

Kitty and her fare.

After the Spiers' feast, we headed over to the Irvine extended family celebration where Steve and his brother Tom shot off a rocket. The parachute malfunctioned and the rocket plummeted into someone's back yard. We hope they considered it a gift from the Thanksgiving Turkey up above.

Also over the weekend was my first book signing. Here I am with the kids by my table. Please note the egg shell blue sweater chosen to match the cover of my new book (yes, I am totally cheesy enough to do that!). Thanks to all of you who came and supported me--as well as to Seagull Book and Tape in Mesa for hosting the event.

I hope you all had a marvelous Thanksgiving as well!

Scripture of the Day: D&C 59:15-19


  1. Rebecca, how do I email you? I think I deleted your email address. Did you contact Kerri about her win?

  2. I love that you guys just shot off rockets!

  3. Kristina, I have not e-mailed her because I did not know her e-mail address. If you have it, please e-mail me at rebecca (at) irvinemail (dot) org. Thanks! R.

  4. What a great Thanksgiving. I completely forgot about your book signing. I am the lamest friend ever! I will make it to the next one. I am so sorry.
