Ahhhhh. Thanksgiving. It was such a bittersweet holiday this year. With my grandma being sick and knowing that this is most likely her last Thanksgiving was really hard. It was an emotional day. I am very thankful that she is still here. Her mission here in this life isn't quite done yet. It was a very Spanish Thanksgiving. :) There was lots of music playing and lots of food. We Latin people like to get our groove on!

And what's a party without dancing?

My uncle Ignacio (Nacho)

(My cute brother Lance)

My grandma loves to dance so as a tribute to her, all the boys and men in the family got up and had one last dance with her.

Uncle Javi

My aunt Mercedes (Mechi), my grandma (Abuelita) and my cute mom all dancing their little hearts away.

My kiddos and Abuelita. Isn't she beautiful?

There was a lot of watching the dances,

Lots of tears,

Lots of smiles from her

and her,

and last but not least, there was a lot of this.

**My camera really sucked.
The batteries were just about shot.

I hate it when I forget my nice camera!
