Thanksgiving and Beyond

Thanksgiving was great this year.  Since my parents moved to Boise we weren't sure how the whole holiday thing would work, but Erika (Adam's sister) was tired of doing the "Thanksgiving Shuffle" every year so her and Chris invited over all of the Warr's and anyone's "other side" of the family that lives in town.  It was a big crowd, but a fun one!


I had to post this one of sweet little Evie.  She was posing for me while I fixed some settings on my camera.


Penny and my Dad filling up on appetizers before the big dinner.  Penny loved the olives on her "thumbs"...she thinks all of her fingers are called thumbs.


Penny and Ruby....and Ruby's tongue!


Here are all of the cousins on the Warr side...plus a couple of extra's.  The two who aren't our cousins are Erika's nieces from the Griffin side.


Silly faces!


Our across the street neighbors have a little Christmas Tree Farm and they invited us over to cut one down.  Here is the one we chose.


Evie wanted to try her hand at the saw.


It was a family effort carrying the tree home.  Evie loves the lights on the tree now and wants them on all day long.  She also rearranges the ornaments often.


We made gingerbread houses for FHE this week.  The girls are really proud of themselves...and so is Adam!


Penny didn't help so much as she ate candy.


Evie was very particular and careful in her placement of the candy.


Evie had to do a little sampling herself.


Adam and Penny's finished product.


Mine and Evie's house.


My parents invited the girls over to make gingerbread men.  Penny thought the flour on the table was for the eating.  She quickly learned otherwise.


Here they are in action.


Once again, eating more than helping!

Funny little girls!


Evie did really well cutting stuff out.


Decorating and eating!  Thanks for the fun afternoon Grandma!

You are such a fun mom. Truman has been wanting to make a gingerbread house. We might have to use your graham cracker idea.

We might have to come visit again this summer. We will be only 5 1/2 hours away. We are moving to Yakima, WA in 3 weeks.
