Our Thanksgiving Table

We hosted Thanksgiving this year for Roberts family. All of his brothers and Sister and Mom came down to Arizona for the event.  Every body cooked lots!! All I made was the turkey and the rolls. Some great cooks are in his family. Favorite: Peppermint Chocolate Log Roll. Yum!

First event was swimming and Hotdogs and Marshmallows. Love Arizona's warm weather! 
(Max was eventually banned from using a skewer. )

 All of Robs family roasting marshmallows at our club house

Cousin Lucy

Dane, Sam, and James at the Lego store

 James and Sam pulled out a small tree and got my pumpkins off the porch to make a 'tree stand' then they decorated the tree with lights and legos.
We found them making their pretend christmas. They were embarrassed and told us to go away. I loved seeing them pretend together and using their creativity.
