Thanksgiving Weekend

We went to Klamath Falls this past week to spend Thanksgiving at my parents house with my parents, my brother Bret & his wife Nikki and their 3 boys, and my sister Traci and her husband KC and their 6 kids visiting up from Southern California. It was such a great visit. We (I) took naps, played games, watched movies, talked, read, and just hung around the house the entire time.
The boys were in seventh heaven playing with the cousins all day. They bundled up and made a clubhouse outside, played trains, and a few marathon games of Risk. It was our first Thanksgiving with the newest additions to the family - Traci and KC's adopted boys Brad and Joey. What sweet boys they are and how lucky we are to have them as a part of our family now. We're especially excited because they're so close in age with our boys.
Saturday night we went to Uncle Don's and Aunt Ann's for a hot dog roast and bonfire. It was freezing cold, but so much fun to hang out with the Taucher side of the family (my mom's side).
The only down side to the wkend was the sad state of affairs for the Oregon Ducks' football team - they've literally gone from being the best team in the country to one of the worst due to a slew of season-ending injuries to key players. It was hard to watch for us Duck fans.
The pictures show: our family with my mom at the hot dog roast, Alisha and mom with some of the cousins baking in the kitchen, a cousin train led by engineer Tate and caboose Bayli, the "kids' table" at Thanksgiving (that's grape juice Brodie is holding up!), and finally me and Uncle Don at the bonfire.
Thanks Mom and Dad for hosting a great weekend, great food, and for raising a great family: 5 kids, 20 grandkids, and 49 years and 4 months of marriage. We are truly thankful for that!
