Thanksgiving 2014

This year we had a very special Thanksgiving.  We just moved into our new house two days ago and my family from WA came to visit.  We were so excited to be able to welcome them into our new house.  We even have room for guest now! 
 The weather was nice enough to play outside!!
 My dad raked the leaves into paths for the kids to run around in. 
 My mom brought the girls some dress up clothes.....Ila May was in heaven. 
 Legos, legos and more legos.
 This is my darling nephew, Trey.  He's my older brother's little boy. 
 We have a tradition of doing a scavenger hunt on Thanksgiving.  The kids look for this funny little stuffed toy turkey named Strut. Strut leaves the kids notes all over the place with hints on where he is.  
 This year the first note was at the front door.
 Uncle Todd was the official note reader.  
 They went up the stars, down the stairs then up again and down again.....finally they found Strut. 
 He was waiting for them on the deck!
 Trey was so excited running all over the place.
 Silas and Grammie-goo looked for Strut together.....along with Lucy. 
 Turkey time!
 The cousins played and played.
 After dinner the kids wanted to play outside some more.  We are really enjoying our large yard.
 Loved this picture of my dad doing dishes after a wonderful Thanksgiving meal. 
 Levi found a good climbing tree and spent a lot of time there. 
 This is the next day, again out in the backyard.  
My brother brought their tow dogs, here's is Abram who had a blast with the kids.
