Family Thanksgiving 2014- Mason, Jessica & Alene -John, Libby, Ashlee & Mikayla - Denver & Bree - Sam, Heidi, Carlee, Preston, Audrey & Cole.
Sam and Heidi were so gracious to host Thanksgiving at their home this year.
Theme- gold and silver with a touch of woodland.
The kids table-
The children helped create the kids table-
The food was fabulous- Sam smoked the turkey and made pies, Heidi made rolls and a million other little things, each of the families came with something to share.
After eating the girls worked on a craft...tradition.
We made toe warmers- 2 pieces of fabric 8x10 one side was felt- trim- and rice to fill.
20 lbs of rice later. Carlee warmed her's up right away. (2-3 minutes in the microwave for hours of warmth)
After the crafting-
Let the games begin! (Family Thanksgiving competition tradition.)
Sam and Heidi came up with a few relay activities-
- shoot the ball off the tee
- suck up M&M's
- pick up marshmallows with chopsticks.
(see Denver's hand...he was so kind to hold Brees hair back)
Mason and Jessica took first place. =)
Strawberry, pecan and pumpkin!
Thank you Sam and Heidi for hosting- and thank you family for all you do!
What a blessing you are in my life!
The girls all went home with a few fun things- Smells of Christmas. rice toe warmer- (I guess the boys get to keep the competition gift cards. =)
and this Christmas Breakfast box- sharing this idea on Monday....stop by then.
More just for fun pictures-
We all have gymnastic bars in our bark yard right? =)
The kids/adults spent some time on this- Carlee challenged her Mother to a rope climbing contest- Carlee made it to the top in 8 seconds....beating her Mother just by a couple seconds....On the other hand her Dad made it to the top in 4 second....using just his hands no legs.
