Family Thanksgiving-ness etc.

Yep, it's a little late - but better late than never! The whole E family was together for Thanksgiving this year! It was the first time we've all been together since my parents left on their mission. I love when my family gets together! It's always so much fun and there is never a dull moment with all the kids and the children. ;) We got together friday afternoon for the delicious dinner - mmmmmmm. And then it was play time and hanging out with the fam. It was so nice to see everyone! The weather was awesome too! A little on the chilly side, but just right to play in.

On Friday, we had our family reunion. We met in the morning for breakfast and then spent the morning playing games and decorating squares for a family flag. We had a Wii bowling tournament where my 8-year-old niece blew everyone out of the water with a score of 198! Her little 5-year-old brother came in second place with 193! They were awesome! I have never gotten that high on Wii bowling! Their family took the tournament by storm! We had sandwiches for lunch and then played a getting-to-know-you game.

Then it was time for the scavenger hunt! We split up in teams and then went at it. It was so fun! For those who know the E-family, you know that we are competitive. It was a photograph one where we needed to take a picture of our team at the place where the photo clue was taken. We got 2nd place! Yeah!

We then headed to the church to play some games! We played glow-in-the-dark games with glow-stick necklaces. It was a lot of fun! We also played some basketball games.

After the games at the church we chilled at the house and hung out until it was dinner time. Then we had family skit time. Ha ha! It was awesome! We were given a bag of props and had to do a skit to show what we had been up to all year. I loved the creativity! Then it was board game time! It was such a fun couple of days! You can check out all our photos here (I can't choose just a couple to put on here):

We love our family!
