Thanksgiving + Family = Shenanigans
Family is a single word, with many different meanings. People have many ways of defining a family and what being a part of a family means to them. Families differ in terms of economic, cultural, social, and many other facets, but what every family has in common is that the people who call it a family are making clear that those people are important in some way to the person calling them his/her family.
This past Thanksgiving, like every Thanksgiving before, the menu was set, the tables and chairs were set, and ofcourse the desserts with plentiful! What set this Thanksgiving apart from the past three Holiday feasts was the visit of our brother Kenny. He relocated to Orlando, Florida in 2012 and although three years doesn't seem long, his one-man-band, quickly expanded into a family of his own. He came with his two beautiful daughters, Emma & Jada along with his girlfriend Tanya.
Every time we get together, whether it's for a birthday celebration, random holiday or simply a "food/drinks" get together be sure that Titi Elizabeth is ready to snap some pics.
Yadeliz & A'zalia are always smile ready for some action!
This right here is our show stopper, aspiring model (or so I say) K'aandre. Naturally, I had to take more than one photo...
Sassy little Aniyra is always ready to be my muse. Quick poses and endless smiles live in this warm soul. I like to think she is just like her titi then again, her mom would want all the credit for this one!
Baby Jada shares a smile with her daddy and all of us watching in awww!
Papa and Mama are the King and Queen of this Wolf pack! They are the glue that hold us together, the guiding light and ofcourse the consciousness in our subconcsious... ♥
First time little miss Emma got to swing on a tire and let me tell you, her strength at only 1yr old is amazing! There was no way she was letting go that's for sure!
This 2nd generation is only 2/3 of our entire clan of offspring. It includes total of four handsome little fellas and seven sugar-coated little ladies! Something tells me it does not end here!
Meet the Burgos Family! ♥ Tanya, Emma, Kenneth & Jada ♥
Again, part of our crew were unavailable for this thankful day of thanks but we held down the fort quite nicely -- You may be able to choose your friends, your boss and maybe your coworkers but we can NEVER choose family. God gave them to us for a reason- Through laughter and even tears, there is no other set of crazies I rather be with!
The model of our family, my is Leli. Spunky, always smiling and ready for the camera!
The best photos are those that are unrehearsed, unposed and ALL natural! My neice A'zalia brings this photo to Life! Below: Princess Naelize was not able to spend her thanksgiving with us but she came just in time to snap a few pics for her Titi - Adorable!
At the end of all the food, jokes and gathering, I reflected on our lives and everyone in it. Those near and those far, those we see everyday and those we rarely see and I must say that without loved ones, where would we be? - Life is short, we cannot pretend to know it all - Don't let pride ruin what God meant for your life - Joy, Laughter & Love!
