Turkey Day

On Thanksgiving Day, the kids made some place cards for the table.  Aunt Anneli led the pack.  

 Papa and Ben carved the turkeys.

 The kids under 12 sat at the bar.  We had 11 kids under 12.  

 The rest of the adults and teenagers/college kids sat at the long table.  We had 20 at the table.  31 people in all!  Great Grandpa and Great Grandma Daw were there too.
 After, the kids scattered, some of the girls played under the Christmas tree, people cleaned up the kitchen, and some of us supplied the music.  :)

Wednesday Family Fun

We got into Jerome late Tuesday night.  We left after I taught a couple of piano lessons and stopped in Kaysville for dinner.  Wednesday was filled with food prep, kid entertaining, and visiting.  Here's my kids at the Barn.  If I didn't know where they were, chances were they were over playing in the gym.  

Here is a picture of the lunch crew that day.  I just everyone sitting around the bar eating.  It makes my heart happy.  

 We broke the dry bread for Grandma Del.  There were 6 pans of dried bread, and it filled 4 HUGE bowls.  
 Bella loves Mikesell!

 Grandma Del bought a new clock in Missouri a couple weeks ago, and the kids (and adults) were enthralled with it!  The face opens up and spins around while it sings songs and has a little spinning thing with crystals at the bottom too.  It was lovely!
 Dani, Dave, Mom, Dad and Lyss came that night.  Dave defended his ice cream with his "mean Momma Bear" face.  Again, sitting around the bar, eating food, and chatting.  It was my favorite!
 See, told you even the adults stared at the clock when it chimed.  Mom and Uncle Ben watching it chime.
 We had so much stuffing, that we didn't have bowls big enough to fit it in!  We stuck it in 2 big garbage bags, and put it in the cooler.  :)  We're cool like that!  
Oh so many more Thanksgiving weekend pictures coming your way!!!

Pre-Thanksgiving Fun

Josh took the big 3 to the BYU game with Grammie and Pops.  It was snowing pretty good that night! 

 Thomas had to disguise a turkey for Thanksgiving week so it didn't get eaten.  He disguised his as a Lego guy.  Loved it!  

 Sophie uses stamps like they are make up.  Lovely.
 Talking to Aunt Jar Bear on Skype :)  Always a treat!

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

Hi All!  We are back from a lovely weekend filled with food, fun, family and memories!  I couldn't wait to get to blogging about it, but I have apparently (again) run out of Google Storage.  Geeze!  So I have upgraded!  But it may take a couple days for it to let me start adding pictures again.  But when I do, there will be a lot!  :)  We are enjoying this time of the year, counting our blessings, spending time with family, and soaking up the sun outside when we can!  Hopefully, I'll be back to adding pictures tomorrow!  Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving, and are enjoying this Christmas Season!

Saturday Snow Day

Saturday morning, we woke up to MORE snow!!!  We bundled right up and headed out to play!  I just love these snow pictures!

 We packed in the car and headed to find a sledding hill.

 I love how they're eating the snow off their gloves.
