Thanksgiving - part 2

After our turkey dinner, my sister initiated a little project for us. She's so good at dreaming up fun stuff for people to do!

Our group picture with the finished scarecrow family! You have no idea how many times I tried to upload this today! This was the final attempt - I think Blogger knew it's days were limited with me :))

Larry and Bob built the father figure of the family.

I think this is my favourite picture of the whole afternoon! It really looks like a body on the bales, doesn't it?!!

This is the scarecrow family we ended up creating, the first time we've ever done a project like this. They are gracing the lawn at the end of my parent's driveway, bringing a smile to every neighbor that drives past, I'm sure!

What a crazy girl! I love the cattle that you can see in the background of this picture.

Ed, our nephew, is full of fun and always willing to participate in every adventure.

Jen and Jill can be quite the crazy pair!!

Leo is Jill's friend from university and he always brings a new perspective to our gathersings, especially because he's originally from Venezuela. There are so many things we take for granted that he's never experienced.

Jen - another of our beautiful nieces! She loves photography too - I think it's a genetic thing in our family :))

Our sisters portrait for this fall! I am so blessed to have this woman as my friend and supporter. We are the oldest and youngest in our family and have one more sister. (We love you, T!)


  1. She dreams up the most creative things. Great scarecrow family. I love seeing everyone get involved and the fun people have while doing it. I love your orange vest by the way. Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. What wonderful pictures! Your weekend sounds perfect!

  3. What a big, fun family you have and are blessed with.
