THANKSGIVING

Thanksgiving is the one Holiday that really makes sense to me. Giving Thanks for everything we have been blessed with this past year...I always wanted to have a Thanksgiving where everyone grew something and then brought to the feast. Even the turkey! I'm especially grateful for Family. Here's a recap of the Holiday...
First what is Thanksgiving without an Indian and a Pilgrim?















Steve...



Enjoying the FEAST...












Sari swallowed the whole turkey...
Turkey is a natural sleeping tonic so to wake us up we played some games...
Like Guesstures....



This is Felippe...he's from Brazil...
The cat was thirsty...

The GIANT playroom was a big hit. Just about everyone took a turn at gymnastics!
The Bar...



Jousting on the Beam...


Halo addicts kept it up all night...
And then there was the springboard....




We also had KAREOKE with wigs on.
We played SARDINES. It was so much fun in the Swartz House because it's so
big and there are so many hidey holes. Ever seen 12 people in one shower?
I have tons of pics and obviously can't post them all. Needless to say
We had tons of fun! Thanks to the Swartz' for their hospitality in sharing
their home.

Wow, that sounds like so much fun!! I don't know if I would've had the energy for it all...I like to just lay down afterwards...eat some more food...lay down...repeat process. I'm gonna hafta visit the Swartz place one of these days, sounds awesome!

Oh I love your pics! I didn't get any of the feasting. I like your angle on the springboard too.

What a fun Thanksgiving! I think it gets better and better every year!

I sure feel like I ate the whole turkey. It was a great day though and we had a blast.

Ha ha. I have been bragging about this to all of my friends. I LOVED playing sardines. I think that the last time we played it was in WA when the power went out. Terry hid in our chimney!
