Thanksgiving 2011

This year for Thanksgiving we were in Hurricane with my side of the family!

Each year we alternate the Thanksgiving holiday between my side of the family and Kory's. Two years ago we were in Hurricane but we were missing my brother Matt as he was serving a mission in Penn. The last time our family was complete at Thanksgiving was in 2007, 4 years ago!

I think we all had a great time being together this past weekend. Everyone stayed for a few days so the kids had plenty of time to play with their cousins and us adults had plenty of time to sit around and visit. We did the black friday shopping together, the grandkids helped Grandpa set up all his Christmas decor outside, the Daddy's and Hunter went Paint Balling and Emily's favorite part of the week was to go carolling to her GG and GG Pa's house. When you've got 13 adults and 9 grandkids singing all at once we didn't sound to bad!This is Jamie and Elena. These two were born the same year Brayden was. We call these three the triplets! Folding there arms waiting so patiently for dinner.

We had plenty of food the entire week.
My borther,Travis brought his X-Box so there was plenty of video playing done by all the boys in the family!

Grandma had a Christmas craft ready for us do with our kids.

Madelyn did one side and Emily the other. Brayden was napping at the time and Hunter was having his turn on the X-Box.

So what is this Christmas craft?

Ta da.......

A toilet seat cover!

The first thing my kids did when we got home was to put our new and only toilet seat cover on!

Good Job, Grandma. It was great craft and the girls really enjoyed it.
