We had a great Thanksgiving this year.  We invited Rob's aunt and uncle and their kids, his Grandma, and his brother Duncan.  Rob's aunt invited her friends and their three daughters.  It was a lot of people, but tons of fun!  The kids were in heaven with all of the people to show off to and get attention from.  Sadie learned how to play Uno with them so we have already played two games of it this morning...and I'm sure there will be more later.  :)

We had tons of food so that wasn't a problem.  It was all delicious too!  Then after dinner we played speed scrabble (so fun!) and Uno and the friend of Aunt Bonita played us some violin pieces.  He is very talented and it was so fun to listen to.  Although, Emery might disagree...more on that later.

I really need a new camera!  I just looked at all these pictures and every one of them is blurry!

 This was from Sadie's kindergarten class.  They made those vests out of paper!  They had a feast and got to dress up like this.  So fun.  She loves school!

 Here are Sadie and Zac chowing down on their drumsticks.  Rob was pretty sad that they got these since he loves the dark meat.  :)  When Zac was done with his he tried to snag it to finish it off, but Sadie wanted it.  Poor Rob...

 We had three tables:  kids table, my craft table and our regular dinner table.  It was a little bit of a tight squeeze, but we made it work.  :)

 Full house!  I should have taken a picture of all of the was so yummy!

 Zac finished eating and patiently waited for Rob to finish eating so he could play chess.  Rob is so proud that Zac is interested in chess!

 Speed scrabble.

 Enjoying some beautiful violin music.

 The violinist.  He was really really good.

 This is Emery being comforted by Rob after the first song he played scared her half to death.  We didn't really warn her that he was going to play the violin and it was pretty loud.  She was over playing in the corner by herself and when he was done playing the fiddler on the roof we heard her making some sounds and she was hiding and had a huge frown on her face.  She was holding in her tears.  Poor girl.  I bet if she was sitting with one of us when he started playing she would have been fine.  But now when we ask her about it she says "violin plays beautiful music."  ha ha.

 Emery loved great grandma!  

 She did dances for her and showed her tons of toys.  

All the kids with great grandma.  We really should get together more than we do.  They don't live too far away.  

This is the song that freaked Emery out.  ha ha.

We had a great Thanksgiving and we are so glad everyone could come.  It was so fun.  We are so thankful for all of our blessings.  We have a wonderful family, awesome friends, a beautiful home, Rob likes his job....I could go on and on.  Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
