We had a great Thanksgiving with Tim's dad and step-mom here from Springfield, MO. All 3 of my kids were here with 2 sons-in-law, 3 grandboys and 2 friends.
It started like this:
|Aaron thought his Grandpa Jasper might enjoy seeing his new hat.|
|Yes, Jasper liked it and described it as a 10 gallon hat on a 2 quart head. (or something like that)|
|On Thanksgiving morning we answered the door and found this. He resembled the rest of the people standing at our door demanding entrance....|
|What can I say? Yes they're related to us.|
|Now, speaking of crazy traditions. Thanksgiving at our house would not be the same without "the roll".|
One of the kids will say to Tim, "Dad, can I have a roll?" And this is what we get. It's been going on for more years than I can remember.
|Andrea and Patrick "got to" sit at the kid's table this year. So as usual I'm shooting tons of pictures (even though SHE'S the PHOTOGRAPHER http://www.amurphyphoto.com/). So she says, "Hey let's do a silly face". And guess who ends up being the silly one?|
|We had fun being tickled by Grandma Linda. Some of us seemed to enjoy it more than others. (He really DID like it...the picture just doesn't show it)|
|We also had lots of fun eating (and squeezing Wesley's thighs) I think Javier was practicing for when he gets his new baby daughter next month.|
|Need I say anything about this one? Fun, fun, fun!|
|Uncle Aaron gets his nose tweeked.|
|Aaron with Grandma Linda and Grandpa Jasper. Sigh....This will probably be Aaron's last Thanksgiving with us for a while. He goes to Marine Boot Camp in April.|
