Two Thanksgivings - Of Nieces And Nephews

My family was having Thanksgiving in Queens this year, while Lisa's was in the usual place in the north Bronx. Stupid me waited until the last minute to decide that renting a car was preferable to riding the subway back and forth all day long, but alas EVERY SINGLE rental place was all sold out. Luckily, we were able to borrow my sister-in-law's car for the day, and despite horrific traffic tie-ups in Queens, the day went smoothly. I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving!

This is Lisa's sister's son, Chandler. He's only 16 months old, but he looks bigger for his age. I believe he's 28 lbs. He was really happy to see his auntie, and every time the warning light lit up on my camera, he startled giggling hysterically. I swear, every single picture of his looks like this one! Afterwards, he spent most of the night running around and kicking his ball around and soaking in all the attention he was getting from all the ladies in attendance. Definitely a ladies' man, this one.

Lisa's brother and his girlfriend just had a baby this year. Her name is Ariana, and she's 6 months old. She's also the darling of any get-together. I mean, look at those cheeks! She's the chubbiest and most well-behaved baby I've ever seen. Every single woman there was trying to steal her and keep her for themselves all night. Even Chandler gets excited when his baby cousin shows up. He went running straight up to her and gave a big kiss. Then he pointed at Ariana and said: "Baby!" It was too cute.

She was loving my camera. She kept grabbing it and stuffing it in her mouth. It must be baby drool-proof, though, as it still works. Yay!

Lisa kept getting Ariana to smile all night. Here she was just fed, so she's extra happy. The babies in Lisa's family are generally well-padded, if you know what I mean. Which is how babies should be, no? :)

I just couldn't resist taking one last pic before she left for the night. Here Ariana is all decked out in a pink pea coat and matching hat. Stylin!

I think adult ladies should be well-padded too ;)

My sons and husband went and saw the Quantum of Solace and all enjoyed it, even though they said Bond killed a bunch of people. Good guys aren't supposed to kill people, I said. Remember Superman, Spidey and all those other greats. They said, "Oh,... he didn't really mean too." Yeah right.

So, I told them about Twilight, which is what me and the girls went to see. Luke, said, sounds more like a Highlander than a vampire story.

But hey, if we were all the same, life would be boring - no?

Well, I'm glad they liked QoS, killing or no killing. :)

And, hey, Highlander is my favorite movie and tv franchise of all time! How dare he sully its name by likening Twilight to it! (ha-ha)

Nah, in a way I agree. While watching Twilight, I did think that some of the angst Edward displayed was very reminiscent of a lot of what Duncan and Connor went through in Highlander. That specific theme -- the emotional cost of Immortality -- was the biggest drawing point to Highlander for me. No joke.
