Grimmlins at Thanksgiving

We had a lovely day of Thanksgiving with the Grimms and the Roberts on Saturday at Todd and Amelia's home.

This was the theme of the day. And believe it or not, I did not take one picture. Amelia took the ones I am sharing below. I was having too much fun to get out my camera.

Here are my big grands...

Seems we cannot get a picture without bunny ears.  Isn't the fireplace beautiful. Todd did this himself, taking out an old wood burning stove insert that was there.  He is very talented.

Uncle Todd mugging for the camera. Elliott says Uncle Todd can fly Elliott on a Magic Carpet Ride...very high and around and around. None of the other kids like it so

Baylor Man was LOVING the swing.

And the two buddies.....more bunny ears.

I love to see the cousins all together having fun.  I am thankful that Amelia and Todd open-end their home to us for the day!

You have such a beautiful family, Arlene. Love the cousins being able to get together and have family fun. Loved the bunny ears, too. And the fireplace is AMAZING!

It is sad later when you realize you took no pictures, but honestly that is a sign that you were enjoying yourself too much to slow down. I love Baylor's look on the swing.
The fireplace is great. I wish I had those skills.
Blogger has definitely made things harder lately. IF you don't turn on the comments notification you get lots of spam and then the Safari update just really messed things up for me. IT is not compatible with Blogger at all. I see it on discussion boards, but no fix that has been mentioned has worked yet. I look at blogs on Safari, but then I go to Mozilla to comment. I like looking on Safari because you can see things better, but commenting is almost null and void for me there.

It looks like a lot of fun! I always liked getting right in the middle of the kids to play! And how nice that others are taking photos when you are busy! Happy Thanksgiving!

Oh Arlene, it looked like everyone was having a good time. I love that your grands are able to get together and develop close cousin relationships.

Looks like a wonderful early Thanksgiving celebration, Arlene--my your grandkids are really growing up quickly! I find myself taking fewer photos at family get-togethers these days, too. Time to let the younger generation take over :)

I've never seen a swing like that, but it does look like great fun! And that fireplace--what a beauty!

Always great to see grandkids making memories!!

That's a beautiful fireplace and beautiful grands too! I love Baylor on the swing!
My comments have been messed up this week again too.
PS - thanks so much for the sweet card. What a wonderful surprise in the mailbox. It's sitting out in our living room so I can enjoy it.

Those are some great photos! The kids are all growing up so fast (as they should.. but time could slow down a bit)! I so glad you had a wonderful family-filled celebration!

Mary said...

Great photos and it certainly appears everyone had a great time! The fireplace is outstanding!!
