It is not often you get the five sisters ALL together in one shot. Last time, it was 10/10/10, Brenda's wedding. Before that? I'm pretty sure it was my wedding; 09/15/2002. We're just never available at one time! This year, we were all together for Thanksgiving. We were only missing one adult nephew and one spouse.
There was WAY too much food; it was a little ridiculous. Tons of meats and tons of dessert. I made a quick cake too.
Guess who took some home? No one! It's all in my fridge! Anyone wanting a snack? Come on over.

We decided to go outside and take family pictures. As I set up the tripod, I started taking random test shots. This picture below was totally candid. They had no idea I was taking pictures. It looks like some men's ad.

The "good" family pictures are on the previous post here.
We decided to take a shot of the five sisters. I went to the formal living room a.k.a. the piano room to set up. The lighting is minimal in the room so I decided to mess with the shutter speed.

Two sisters and dad/Nellie left that evening, while two sisters spent the night with their kids and hubbies. It was a truly fun day. I am thankful we were together.
