We had a total blast this Thanksgiving. We went down past Tucson, AZ to visit my brother's family. All of my siblings came and it was super fun. We'll let the pictures tell of our adventures:
We can't seem to get together without taking pictures. We went to an old Mission nearby and took some cute ones. This is the unedited version, in the final version we'll have all the kids looking and smiling.
Eric & Jenny: Parker, Caleb, Maren & Macey
Scott & Cecilie
Mom & Dad
Jake & Melissa: Rushton & Baby #2
The happy grandparents! The grandkids are:
Rushton (22mos), Caleb (5), Macey (16mos), Maren (3), Parker (6)
Our family photo. Scott was in his element, I was in dismay.
Rushton jamming pretzels into Scott's head; both were throughly entertained.
And as Melissa pointed out in the comments, my Dad's bandaged hand is in the background. He feel while hiking the day before and ended up fracturing a bone. Considering his 'injury' last year we think he escaped Thanksgiving basically unharmed.
Thanksgiving morning my mom got out supplies to make candy turkeys. Parker worked really hard to get his just right.
Maren perhaps enjoyed the marshmallows better than the activity.
Caleb helped Scott make a clock tower for the turkeys.
Maren was quite the little cook. She helped Laura make some tasty lemon meringue pies.
The Thanksgiving party.
Cute little Macey Mae.
Can you see which activity was the favorite? Jake brought a rocket launcher and the boys LOVED it. (And I do mean ALL the boys, regardless of age.)
The easiest way to keep track of all the kids.
