Snapshots | Thanksgiving & Game Night

: : Our Game Night : :

My bro planned the activities for this game night, and they included a tic-tac-toe tournament and raffle tickets.  He made up some awesome honorary prizes.  For example, one lucky person was addressed as "Your Royal Highness" for the entire evening. *wink*

Merlin enjoyed playing with Laura's ponytail...

: : Jenny's Game Night : :

We started off with a neat game that combined Catch Phrase with Gestures.  Everyone wrote down on separate slips of paper a person, a place, and a thing.  The papers went into the container, the group was divided into two teams, and everyone took turns drawing out a slip and using words or gestures to help their team to guess the word.  They had a minute to guess as many words as possible.  Great fun!

You know Rob and Molly are there when you see turtle bread... *grin*

: : Thanksgiving : :

Traditions dictates that we go to my Grandparent's house for Thanksgiving.  So, to Grandmother's house, we went!

My Grandpa cooked all of the food this year...which was nice.  Really nice.  And soooo tasty!!

My mom and dad. :)  My mom is doing so much better now that's she's beginning to recover from Lyme Disease.  It's been a long tunnel, but there's definitely light at the end.  Praise the Lord for His healing and faithfulness!

    I am so glad to see your dear Mom doing much better. I remember the first time I came up to Idaho to see the Hat Band, I was sitting in the auditorium and your parents were about to pass by when they stopped right in front of me and introduced themselves to me. I shook their hands and I still don't know how they knew I was there!
