Tuesday was the last day of school for both kids before Thanksgiving break.
We headed down to my parents on Thursday for Thanksgiving with my family.
First up - getting my parent's Christmas photo with all 7 grandchildren. Which is basically the equivalent of getting 7 cats to do a pyramid.
Just the grandkids
Our typical photo success...
Gaines & Marrell
After the photo shoot, the kids changed into their Thanksgiving clothes and worked on destroying my parents house.
A fan favorite - the hammock swing
Hollon meeting Mae Stanley for the first time

There was lots of fighting going on

Then later that afternoon, all of the kids went out to jump on the trampoline
And a little football
Playing with the candy machine in the play room
|Hollon's face was the face I made when I found out how much candy they had eaten|
Holding Mae Stanley was another crowd favorite

Friday morning, we got up and went to Oak Mountain state park. Robbie & Jake were going on a bike ride and Hollon & I were going to the playground. Robbie was taking Jake on one of the family friendly mountain bike trails. It was Jake's first mountain bike ride.
|Hollon was NOT pleased that she didn't get a bike|
She was all smiles though, once she saw the playground. Especially the swings & slides, her favorites.
After their ride (they rode for over 3 miles!), they joined us at the playground
After the park, we headed over to Robbie's parents to celebrate Thanksgiving with their family. His sister and her family were down from Chattanooga.
Hollon was not amused to share her favorite seat with Sam the dog
Playing in the fountain
Cousins! Jake (8), Hollon (2) & Jackson (14)

Later that evening, we all played Heads Up
It was a fabulous Thanksgiving holiday!
