Hank and Max were excited to meet the dog.

Aaron with all three boys.

Amy taking a break from making a relish plate to get Jasper happy again.

The boys played.

Jasper got parked on the kitchen counter in a bumbo while we peeled, chopped, boiled, and baked.

Doesn't look like this should have taken hours of preparation but it did. Anyway I had the help of my daughters and we enjoyed the process. The food was yummy. Traditional Thanksgiving fare is always a treat.

Resting after eating.

A few years ago we started the tradition of making a craft after the Thanksgiving meal. They guys are watching football and the girls are being crafty. This year it was cute little half-pint jars of french pears sauce that we made and decorated for gift giving.

The finished product.

On Friday I took the girls to a Christmas Bazaar followed by lunch at a neat place we discovered in Umpqua called the Lighthouse Bakery. We had a good time and left the big boys at home.

Amy snapped pictures of the Grovers for a possible Christmas card photo.

Not an easy task to get a picture of three active little boys at the same time. They are in motion!

  1. Some really good pictures Mom! The house looks really good, and probably was perfect for having people over. The boys hovering around the dog is a classic picture, i really like it. Interestingly instead of the boys groaning on the carpet post-meal it looked the women were the ones to do this.
