We had the goods. Turkey, green bean casserole, candied yams, mashed potatoes, rolls, corn, stuffing, deviled eggs. It was a lot of good food. Despite the amazing food, it was having my entire family together that made it even better. The 6 Timmers hadn’t been together since the end of July before I went to Gulf Shores and the rest of the fam made the trek up to Golden, CO to move been into Mines!
So needless to say, Emily and I forced the boys to take a few pictures…

This year, we had quite the crowd at my parents house, so we ended up eating Thanksgiving dinner in the living room watching the Texans go into overtime. It was very tense. I always forget to mention how much we love the Texans because the Packers are the number 1 team in the Timmer family. However, we totally root for the Texans, as long as they aren’t playing the Packers! Yes, we’re brainwashed. Thanks Dad 🙂 As you can see below, when the Texans actually won, the crowd went wild!
The rest of Thanksgiving day was spent playing some super awesome games that my dad invented. We usually play ultimate frisbee, football or baseball, but the boys were injured this year. So we had to get creative. Dad set up a course where we had to hit a basketball with a baseball bat between our legs, facing backwards into a small box on the other side of the yard. Make sense? No. Didn’t think so. Just go with it. The number of times you hit the ball was your first score. Just like golf, the lower the better. Unless your name is Amy Gougler. The second task was to hit a golf ball with a hokey stick around the back of the pool to the other fence and into a flower pot. The number of hits added with the previous number was your final score. I came in 7th out of 8. WINNING!
As always the day after Thanksgiving was devoted to decorating the house. Unfortunately, Momma had to work, so Emily and I got things started once the boys took everything out of the attic. Here’s our beautiful Christmas tree!
I hope y’all had a wonderful long weekend! This is only the first half of mine! Long weekends really are the best, especially around the holidays! Happy Monday y’all!
