Thanksgiving (a little late I know I know)

SO yes this post is a little late but better late then never!!
For thanksgiving this year we were obviously in hawaii and without our families. We were pretty sad at first considering its one of our favorite holidays (we both have a rather unhealthy relationship with food, hence our love of thanksgiving...) BUT thankfully we DO have family here. We discovered freshmen year four years ago that Alex's 3rd cousin Keith Pierce is a stake president here. He lives right here in Laie with his wife Deb, his daughter Hannah and her husband Dara, and Keiths dad Jack. And then his son John lives behind them with his wife Lindsey and there three BEAUTIFUL little boys. Keith and Deb are the most giving amazing people we've ever met and they invited us and three of our friends (Lauren, Steven and Clint) over for thanksgiving!!! So while the girls worked in the kitchen the boys did what? PLAY WII OF COURSE!!! :) (thats steven and dara playing wii in the picture, with Lauren laughing at them on the couch)
Who's this handsome man you ask??? Oh thats Keiths dad Jack (the one in the wheelchair) :)
Keith and Deb slaving away in there beautiful BIG kitchen. They have an amazing house (Keith designed and built it) that makes you feel like your back on the mainland, SO NICE!
And here's Hannah. This is Keiths youngest daughter who we love. She made a beautiful center piece complete with a pumpkin candle, it was awesome!!
Anyways, all in all it was an amazing thanksgiving. The food was delish, the decor was beautiful but mostly the company was amazing. We ate and talked for like 3 hours, it was so nice to just sit back and talk with family and friends that we are so thankful for. :)
