Golly geez whillikers! We enjoyed our family’s Thanksgiving dinner with our two son’s families last Saturday! Several little adorable Chauvins running around, fishing, playing on the hammock, enjoying Bo and Peep Duck and eating Thanksgiving dinner!
Bo and Peep are used to peace and quiet and the only people around them are two old folks who walk slowly. I can’t imagine what they thought when the active little children invaded their quiet life! They were waddling around A LOT more than usual! They are not flying ducks but they can fly a few feet. I expected to see some of that with the little folks chasing them but they just waddled around and squawked and quacked! Before our family Thanksgiving, Roy added some flat stepping stones in front of their cage because as he said: “their little short legs have trouble climbing into their cage.” Isn’t that the sweetest thing!
Our sweet grandpuppy, Misty’s little baby dog, Samson was the star of the day. Everyone wanted to hold his cute cuddly self! He’s never been held so much and by the end of the day, he was sound asleep in his mama’s arms! In most of the photos below, if you see children, you also see Samson!
This little girl does not stop unless you ask to take her picture!
Our oldest son spent some time fishing with his son. They both caught a lot of fish.
This is what I dreamed of when we created our picnic area! Everyone was having fun and I got to spend some quality time with my oldest granddaughter.
The hammock turned out to be a lot of entertainment for the little girls. You can see the holes starting in this first picture. Nothing tore, the strings just moved apart and the girls loved it!
Madisyn is in the hammock with her sweet brother Samson.
Then all four girls crawled in there with Samson the strings really started to separate, still nothing broke but you can see in the second picture below how their body parts and even heads came through. Their mama and I were sitting at the table right next to the hammock and she kept a good eye on all that.
This was Roy and I after everyone went home! I don’t think we moved from there for over two hours!
A memorable family Thanksgiving gathering in the books and lots of love shared with all! Most families are celebrating on the traditional Thanksgiving day. I hope you and your families have many memorable moments together! We’ll be spending the day watching Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, cooking and eating more Thanksgiving food and watching the Saints play football in the evening!
