A Very Bowen Thanksgiving.

Four generations met up at Lake Tenkiller, Oklahoma for a good old-fashioned Thanksgiving house party. There were 27 people all told: Grandma Jo; Jerry & Patty, Kimberly, Lindsey & Matthew; Brenda, Audra, Megan, Krissi & David; Sandy & Bobby, Kerry & Kit, Brett, Lexie & Kylie; Janet & Larry, Sarah & Andy, Gracie & Garret, and the three of us - David, Katrina and Hueston. We had a great time introducing Hueston to everyone (Kim, Lindsey and Matt were the only ones who'd met him before), eating a lot, and making lots of noise. David even got in a couple of games of Scrabble.

The drives there and back were blessedly peaceful.

Six bedrooms (I think) and three bathrooms.

Grandma Jo meets Hueston Parker.

There was lots of singing (video coming in a separate post).

The great-grands:
Garret, Lexie, Brett, Kylie, Gracie, and Hueston

Garret tries to rescue David from the leaf pile smackdown.

The three of us got out for a walk after our big Thanksgiving lunch on Friday. Hooray for the Ergo! This was David's first time to wear it.

New hat.

Hueston laughed for 20 minutes at Lindsey and this box of Tootsie Pops.

We didn't manage to get everyone into a family picture (wrangling 27 people is hard!), but hey, maybe we'll do it again!
