Family Game Night

Today we had Kevin's immediate family and Kevin's Uncles family to dinner. Amazingly we fit 16 people around one table (made from 4 tables placed together) in our dinning/living room. I made turkey and everyone else brought the sides. It was so fun to have everyone together eating and laughing. After dinner we played Apples to Apples, which is one of our favorites. Because I am a procrastinator and had a pretty busy week, I hadn't taken any photos for this weeks entry, so I pulled out the camera and took some shots of everyone playing. Right as I was about to put the camera away I saw the discard pile behind Kevin and decided it might make an interesting still life. Just as I was pressing the shutter, Kevin reached around and placed more cards on the pile. I think it turned out pretty cool and was my favorite from the bunch. I always find it interesting that my favorite photos are usually either the first or the last photos I take during a "shooting". Let me know what you think.
