On Friday morning we went over to my mom and dad’s house for a BIG thanksgiving get together. Kristin and Rob came down from Northern California, as did Rob’s sister and her family, and her in-law’s joined us from Claremont. And of course there was Bridget and Jon and Jon’s mom, and us! We divied up the dishes, which made it great on everyone, but it also made for a very busy kitchen!
While everyone was cooking, the boys played outside. They golfed for awhile.
Then they tesed out the safety net on Maw and Pop’s pool.
Then they hunted pirates.
And, finally, they practiced their kung fu moves with Pop.
Back in the house, people cooked, and my sis smiled.
Here’s the tablescape my Dad designed. Sandra Lee would be so proud.
Almost done cookin’!
Caden helped carve the turkey again.
Finally, time to eat! Jon ate his green veggies, what a big boy!
Bridget, Kristin, and Josh did some tongue tricks.
The Brownells 🙂
The funniest family members
After dinner, the kiddos watched Madagascar.
And the adults sang Christmas carols. It was totally corny, but sometimes it’s fun to be corny!
Before the night was over, Jacob had become a ladies man! She couldn’t keep her hands off him!
Thanksgiving was so much fun this year! It was great having two! Can’t wait for Christmas!
