Thanksgiving with Grandma and Grandpa T

We traveled to Fergus Falls this past week to see Grandma and Grandpa T!  We headed to Paul's Grandma's house on Thursday to celebrate Thanksgiving and then had fun hanging out at Grandma and Grandpa's house the rest of the weekend.  We had so much fun with them!  Here are a few pictures...
Paul cutting the ham and Grandpa T making gravy (with their blaze orange hats from hunting that morning :) )

Father and Son

Hanging out/waiting for dinner

Kids--Javonte, Morgan, Wyatt, Jackson, Lilly, Colton

Summer loved watching Bailey make friendship bracelets and has been wearing the one Bailey made for her all the time :)

Playing cars

Colton ready to eat!

Summer sat by Jackson (born on the same day, same age)

Lilly organized "motorcycle races" for Summer and Jackson in Gee-Gee Sandy's basement

Ladies Table

Grandpa and Colton playing cars

Colton loved Grandma and Grandpa's ride-on lion...and the ROAR when he pressed the lion's nose

Playing cars with Grandpa

More cars with Grandpa

Cars with Grandma and Daddy

Cars with Grandma and Summer (no joke, this kid spent most his whole time playing cars....)

Colton and Grandpa watching the birds at the birdfeeders

Love Colton's profile...

Grandma and Summer making sugar cookies

Summer loved it.

Rolling the dough

Frosting the cookies

Grandpa and Summer played doll house

Reading with Grandma

Hey, we match!

Grandma made play dough for the kids...

And had a super cool play dough "candy maker" for them to play with

Grandma had stuff to make a hand print ornament with the kids.  Summer helped grandma mix up the dough.  Then they rolled it out and pressed in a hand print.  After they dried the kids painted them.  Super fun!

Kids watching Grandpa and Daddy shoot clays (target practice)

Paul teaching was actually a lot of fun!
 I didn't shoot moving targets like the guys did... Grandpa set up the clay pigeon on an old water jug so I could practice shooting stationary objects first.  Grandpa took this video of me and I think it is super funny how long I take "setting up my shot" for a stationary object ;).  The kick-back is pretty funny too!

Javonte giving Colton a ride :)


Playing Sequence for Kids

Summer made the pepperoni crescent rolls all by herself--she loved helping Grandma in the kitchen :)

Wearing Grandpa's hunting hat

Bath time!
 During bathtime, Paul had Christian kid's music (Pandora) playing from his phone (like he usually does) and everyone started singing along.  At that moment I just felt SO blessed to have Christian grandparents on both sides, that love our kids and set such good examples for them.  Unfortunately I only caught the end of one of the songs on my phone in this next video, but I think the harmony is pretty fun.

Painting their handprint ornament crafts

Colton did great for his first time painting!

Summer loved it!

Summer cuddled up next to Javonte while Javonte was watching football :)  so sweet!  It was evident that she loved hanging out with her Uncle this weekend, as she would look for him everytime she couldn't find him, as well as talk his ear off ;)

Summer and Grandpa

We love you Grandma and Grandpa T!

Looks like tons of fun. I love the picture of Summer wearing Grandpa's hunting hat!

Jill said...

Looks like a ton of fun. Grandpa and Grandma T. sure have a lot of fun toys and activities. Is it me or do Paul and Stuart look identical from the back and side? Yikes! Can't tell which is which sometimes. :)
