Thanksgiving: Nelson Style

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.

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!
