Some of our Thanksgiving Fun...

As most families do, we take turns at our extended families for Thanksgiving. This year we were down in Indiana and Ohio with Sep's family for Thanksgiving. Sep did something he's been wanting to do for a few years now...he got to duck hunt while we were there. He hunted with his brother, Johnnie as well as his Uncle Dale. They had a ball! Enjoy...
They took Dad's boat out to taxi them to and fro...
Their kill from the first morning...Uncle Dale sporting the black beanie and Johnnie, yes he's texting, with the racoon furred cap!Sep got a HUGE mallard their last day out.After dinner at Mause's on Thursday we went to Sep's Dad's house. For those of you who do NOT know, Papaw Red Truck was in a bad accident the first of November. His left leg went through the floor of the dumptruck he was driving. Broken femur, knee, tibia, fibia and shattered ankle and many breaks in his foot. And a laceration on his head. We were VERY thankful that as awful as his injuries are, they are completely recoverable. They immediately worked on his ankle and then this past Wed prior to Thanksgiving they reconstructed his knee. Here Papaw is showing Tucker his 'new' pins since we last saw him...Tucker's paying pretty close attention, maybe we have a future Dr on our hands, eh?While Daddy was in the back with some of the guys Toby was LOVING this wig...we took it off before Daddy came back in. But we had a good laugh out of it!After eating we enjoyed a movie together, 'Wild America' with Jonathan Taylor Thomas. The boys have seen it already, usually while in the truck, but with Papaw's big screen and surround sound it gave Tucker a bit more excitiment! Here's Toby having a turn on Papaw's chair WITH WHEELS!!!And, Tucker's turn...and one of his many animated faces when the bears were jumping around and growling....it was so hilarious! He LOVED the thrill of the movie! Tucker snuck in some cuddle time with Ms Gail.Then, the boys serenaded us on the piano...
And, at the end of the night, a picture with Papaw Red Truck and Ms Gail.
