Connie, Penny, Aly, Randy, and Vicki
Randy is the brother that is closest in age to Kevin. They are a year apart. We spend Thanksgiving weekend at their house. We wouldn't have it any other way...I hope Penny feels the same way!
Heading over to Bob's house to prepare for our dinner on Thursday. We meet and mingle, while the other's finish their food assignments. We have already met that morning for a big breakfast at the church, the first gathering of the weekend.
Vicki, Lauren, and a friend she brought. (Plus little Henry!)
Hazel, Parry, Randy, and Bob (sister-in-law, and all brothers to Kevin)
Tibi, Michaela, Landon, Connie, and Levi
(plus mommies Victoria and Dana)
Jeff, Tibi (big Tibi), Rachel, Audrey, and Joe (Rachel's husband)
Marnie, Parry, Penny, and Melissa
Katie, Rachel, Jensen, Natalie, and Jorgen
Kevin's only sister, Teressa. She is the youngest in the family, after 7 boys!
Randon (looking a little scruffy), and his new wife, Kylee
Jonah took more vegetables on his plate than anything else. He enjoyed playing with his red pepper and mixing his jello with it!
Now we're full and can't move!!
But we are happy!
Evidently, no more pictures - but that night we had family night (missionary reports, family additions announced, family history stories, etc.) On Friday, we met at Bob's house instead of the park because it was so cold. We ate lunch, shot off rockets, had a treasure hunt for the toddlers and young kids, and ate Aunt Linda's toffee! Yum... Then we hung around, some went shopping, until meeting at the temple for the Christmas lighting of the grounds, then back to Bob's for our traditional Canneloni/Breadsticks (all homemade) dinner and Silly Song Night. Our family rocked (of course!) with an awesome personalized family version of "Bust a Move". Check out Connie's blog (down the sidebar) for a "live version". It's probably about the only rap song that I will ever enjoy listening to because it turned out so funny...AND TRUE!
Until next year...
