We got the best surprise last weekend - Yaya Julie, Aunt Misty and Cousin Caulder flew out for a quick visit. The best part: Caulder came right in and the kids picked up playing exactly where they left off in the summer. I think it's safe to say these guys are best buddies!
It was Aunt Misty's first visit to Oklahoma, so we showed her all the sights!
We showed off our sweet gas station, "Pops." Yep, that's about as exciting as it gets in Oklahoma. The local gas station is a novelty. Kolby took this awesome picture of June drinking from the giant pop statue.
The kids decorated cookies with Yaya. I accidentally ate 8 cookies. And then I got sick in the middle of the night. Smart, right? Don't judge me!
We spent a Sunday afternoon at the park, too. But the weekend went by much too fast and they had to go home so Tukker, Cole and Grandpa Babe didn't get too jealous. We hated to see them go.
Then came Turkey Day! I had to throw in this picture of June's incognito turkey she made for school. The kids had to make a "turkey with dressing" to keep it safe from the thanksgiving day slaughter. June made hers into a sumo wrestler. I don't think you want to mess with this bad boy.
The turkey was Kolby's baby this year. He brined it over night and got up very early to roast it.
Here's the finished product. Now that's a nice bird!
We had a lovely, laid-back Thanksgiving at our friends' house. The "other" Johnsons. Steph was the ultimate hostess - she made these cute matching Indian- girl outfits for the girls to wear. She knows them so well, dress-ups are a must for these divas.
Steph and Jess - slaving away in our aprons. We're so grown-up!
And here's the boys' club: Spencer, Kolby and baby Luke.
We ate so much that we had to spend the afternoon playing the Wii from the comfort of the couch. Who knew you could golf and play tennis while sitting down?
It was a wonderful family day and I didn't forget to say my prayers at night and thank Heavenly Father for all the blessings he gives to me.
