Thanksgiving weekend

Every year we go repelling thanksgiving morning with Trent's family. My camera's battery was charging, so I don't have pictures. We all got in on the fun though. Trent harnessed Tucker up and rigged him to himself and took him down with him. Charlotte got to swing on the rope too and had a good time playing in the dirt and pushing her dump truck.

This year I hosted Thanksgiving at my house with my siblings and their families. We had a tasty spread. It was really fun to have everyone together hanging out and eating.

The day after Thanksgiving I got up for "Black Friday" and scored some deals at ToysRUs (after waiting 2 hours). Then we put up the Christmas tree. While I was in the attic, I got down the baby saucer.
After that I picked up 2 of Lindy's girls to spend the afternoon with us. They were great and Tucker spent the whole day playing outside with "girlfriends". Then we headed to a get together with my Dad's side of the family at a church.
Saturday was mostly cleaning and hanging out with Henry and Charlotte while Tucker played outside again Trent worked on various projects and then when shooting with his brother Blake. Then we joined Blake and Andrea and Ashlyn for dinner at Red Robin.

It was a nice, exhausting holiday weekend.

I like how 1/2 the kids are looking at one camera, and 1/2 are looking at the other. I'm sure every single picture will look like that.

I'm glad you had a great Thanksgiving.

Is that your brother with the beard? He's hot- in a Grizzly Adams sort of way.

Awwww...such fun! I am glad you had a fun Thanksgiving! Too bad I woke up at 5 to go do some Black Friday shopping and no one would go with me. It was worthless. haha!
