Thanksgiving

Yes, it's January and I'm putting up our Thanksgiving pictures.  We'll actually start the week before Thanksgiving, when Hailey's school hosted their annual Thanksgiving day feast.  This year we invited Jammy and Papa to come and they were able to make it!

Surprise! Hailey didn't know they would be coming!
Thanksgiving this year was with the Torno side of the family. For some reason I never remember to take pictures when the family is all together, but I did grab my camera when some of the guys and kids decided to play football after the meal.  I wish I had brought sporty clothes so I could play too!

They even let Hailey play until she had enough :)
Trey (white shirt on the left), one of Steve's cousins, was an all-star with the kids. He kept them entertained outside in the afternoon, and even softly tackled them playing tag. Tyson was also obsessed with Uncle Tim and Aunt Dorthy's dog, Star.   I wish I had taken a picture of him with her.  She was in the garage, and he would stay out there with her, talk to her, and keep her company as much as he could.

They had a lot of fun.

Grandpa set up this slot car track in the garage... always awesome!

Tyson had a huge milestone on this trip - he went hunting with Daddy and Grandpa, and they got a nice 9 point buck!  He was in the blind with Daddy, who said he was an all-star. They brought the iPad because they didn't know how Tyson would do, but he never picked it up or asked for it.  Daddy said he was really into it, very quiet, and on the lookout until they saw their buck!

Full camo including war paint! Beautiful buck!

Grandma always has bath crayons for the kids.
I also got to shoot handguns for the first time! We went to Sharp Shooter, which is just around the corner from Grandma and Grandpa's house. They even had black friday deals going, and we didn't have to pay a lane fee and got half off ammo.  I shot a few different 9mm Glock's and Shane's .40.  I loved it once I got my sound cancelling headphones on right.

Might be a new must-do on every trip there...

Thanksgiving was fun, we got to stay for 5 days. We even got to go see the new Hunger Games: Catching Fire movie one night!
