Thanksgiving 2014

Unfortunately our Thanksgiving started at 6:00 AM, which felt like 5:00 AM to us Californians. 

But things turned around after the sun came up and some coffee was consumed.

We had a really great meal...though I guess I shouldn't be the reviewer of the meal considering that I was a little congested and therefore didn't taste much. Somehow that didn't stop me from having seconds.

After lunch and some naps, we headed outside for an activity. The first step of which was to get the guys in shower caps. Playing football optional.

We then covered the shower caps with shaving cream:

Then all of the girls lined up with their partner (June and Kai were partners) and threw cheese balls at them which they had to 'catch' on their heads. Just like our forefathers used to do.

JP and Alison won by a few, so I naturally assume they've been practicing or are currently on steroids. June and Kai got in last because June didn't want to throw a single one of her cheese balls because she wanted to eat them. Eat them all. So we all dumped some on Kai's head so he didn't feel entirely shafted by his partner.

Christmas leggings made their appearance!

Then we all got in the hot tub! Well, Bennett didn't. And the kids just went in the (freezing) pool, but you know what I mean.

We have a lot to be thankful for this year, and one of those things was getting to be together for Thanksgiving! It was a great holiday!

  1. I'm so glad you documented the famous Shower cap/Cheese ball game. The guys looked great in the pictures! I also loved the picture of all the kids on the couch all cuddled up and June and Kai on the pool lounge chairs while they were looking at the stars. Great memories, Julie! Anonymous Mom
