Krazy Thornburg Girl's Strike Again

Sierra Vista small town fun is quite different then the fun us girls have up in the big cities we now live in. Coming back home to Sierra Vista gives us girls small town fever, to do the crazy things we used to do down here for kicks. We decided to toilet paper our good friends the Mitchell's. However not the traditional toilet papering. We are too old for that according to my sister Merri=) We grabbed a roll of toilet paper, and wrote a note, and all piled into my sister mini van.
Let me try and paint you a picture...
Tiffany's van is full with 3 car seats, so Tiffany was our get-a-way driver, I hopped in the front seat, and Merri jumped on my lap. Natalie was sitting behind us in one of the kids car seats=). So off we drove to the Mitchell's house. We pulled up to there house without pulling into there driveway, because we noticed someone out front there house in the dark with a dog. So instead of speeding off, Tiffany stays parked in front of the house with the lights on. After at least 30 seconds, she shuts off the head lights, and says "do you think anyone saw us?" LOL. We were all laughing so hard. Then she takes off and we go around the block. We come back to there house and pull into the half circle drive way. Merri hops out and runs up to their door with the note and the toilet paper, sits it down as someone inside turns on the light and opens the door with Merri right there. She turned and ran back to the van with me screaming "Merri hurry run faster" So much for us being sneaky. We must be the worst group of slap-happy toilet paperers out there.
Tiffany, Katie, Natalie, Merri, and our note...

Krowded: Thanksgiving Time W/ The Entire Family

We were packed into my parents house like sardines packed in a can. LOL. I would not have changed a single thing about our time together. The entire family was together again, and this never happens. What a wonderful thing I am so very thankful for at this time of year.
Here is cute little Maggie running around
Jimmy stopped by to wish me and my family a happy Thanksgiving. We have been the best of friends since Junior High.
Me, Jimmy, and Kade
Jimmy and my Mom. He is the son she never got to have.
There is this little pond with a waterfall in my parents backyard, and the kids have an impossible time not throwing everything that is not bolted down into it (rocks, toys, quail statues, etc...). So here is Uncle Roger fishing everything out before Pop finds his pond full of foreign objects=).
Yummy Turkey
Briggs trying to be helpful.
Grandma and Kade watching our Thanksgiving dinner cook
Kade and I celebrating Thanksgiving a day late, so our entire family could be together and also help cook together.
Maggie fell asleep at the table while eating. How cute are the little faces she makes, even while sleeping.
Kade was running and tripped, catching his face on the wooden edge of my parents glider/rocker. He had a nice shiner for our family pictures.
Check out that nice black eye

Natalie, Justin, and I took all the kids for a little offroading truck ride. Gotta love small town fun. Justin drove while Nat and I sat in the back with the kids.
Michael, Kade, Me, Maggie, Natalie, Briggs, and Ryan.
Poor Maggie with a runny nose poking her head out the rear window.
Ryan, Kade, and Michael on the fun little dirt road.
I love Kade's new picture pose.
We handed Michael the camera and these are the best two pictures we got. Thanks for your help little buddy.

We stopped along the way and fed some horses. Man are we cool fun aunts, uncles, and Moms.
Kade being brave by the horses.
Then we got home and Kade helped Grandma Thornburg vaccum.
Then Saturday morning Bro. Chipman came over and took family pictures for us. Here are some we shot right before ourselves.

After family pictures, Pop took all of the grandkids out to McDonald' to eat and play. What an awesome Pop!!!
Fun at McDonald's
All 6 of the Grandkids piled into Pop and Grandma's jacuzzi tub and had a blast.

Then Kade helped scoop up icecream for our family home evening treat.
We all had a blast being together again. Love you guys to the moon and back!!!
