Rockin' Thanksgiving

As promised, I said I would post about Thanksgiving.  I had to wait for some more pictures, but as usual I didn't have my camera out nearly enough.  Most of the pictures that I got were of the gang playing Rock Band.  Cody and Lauren enjoyed this the most, although Garrett was right there with them.  And of course the boys liked being the singers, but only for one song.

My parents came down on Wed. and my mom jumped right in, making an apple pie.  I made the pumpkin and pecan.  My dad taught Kevin how to play Chinese Checkers and Kevin went to sleep that night starring at the game board, thinking of a strategy to play the next day.  The rest of the gang came down on Thanksgiving day.  We had more than enough food for everyone and the pies were delicious.  

Friday consisted of hanging out, playing more Rock Band, walking to the park and just being together.  My parents headed back up north on Saturday morning and the plan was then the rest of us were going to head to Ventura for the day.....but plans changed after hearing about how bad the traffic might be on Sunday and my brother and family all headed back up on Saturday afternoon to try and avoid being on the road for 10 hours.
Zach's ready to Rock the House!
Kevin found his old friend to snuggle with.....and he doesn't do this with many people.
Zach found a new jungle gym to climb on.

Thanks guys for a totally rockin' Thanksgiving!!  We miss you all already!

It looks and sounds like a good time was had by all. And how awesome that Kevie and Zach were able to be with their cousins in addition to Grandparent's, Aunt and Uncle. Love ya, Susan

Oh, Tasha it looks like you all had such a great time. I am so glad your family was with you on Thanksgiving. The pictures say it all. Thank you for posting them. That way we could be "a fly on the wall" so to speak.
Love Sandy & Joe
