Thanksgiving 2016

For all things lost in 2016 we have gained much more- three grandkids just to top the list.

The problem with eating multiple helpings is others getting done first and grabbing a camera, lol...

The young'un on the on the right is one of those "acquired" grandkids, Aaron.

A very tasty spread, thanks to Laurie and Jessica.  And maybe KC.  I just brought the turkey home, bought dessert, and took out the trash.  And THAT was heavy enough I almost had to have another plateful at 11 PM!

Me and Aaron invented the night's entertainment- rolling cars off a flat surface and down the steps.  Three generations combining to annoy the ladies...

The idea was simple:  Hit the floor, one point.  Hit a pillow, 2 points.  Between the pillow, five points.  No points for doggies.

Later, Scrappy and Aaron meet in brief, pitched battle.  Again, the ladies "spoiled the fun".

Grandma and Peanut share a quiet moment... well, HE was quiet...

They make a perfect couple... perfectly weird.  NOTE:  Key word for the evening was "ball sack."  Best not to ask.


  1. Sounds like you had a good Thanksgiving

    1. Hard not to when you have a family to be thankful for.

  2. Chris:
    That's one of the things I like about you and give the "middle finger salute" to
    (well, that and probably because Laurie has to clock IN on Thanksgiving and Black Friday, right?)
    Just had a feeling.
    Anyway, nothing wrong with messing about with small cars...great pastime.
    We don't have that much planned at all.
    More about that as the week wears on.

    Glad you all had a good time.
    (better have had cake or pie, too)

    1. Yep, Laurie's on until Monday...

      The cars were a blast!

  3. I bet you made Aaron's day with the car game!! YOu're an awesome grandpa!! Bonus grandkids are the best- i am one and the feeling of another family loving me and treating me as one of them is priceless. Happy Thanksgiving to you and Laurie and Scrappy friend.

    1. I hope we did... poor guy goes through a lot- his dad is not a reputable father figure.
