Adam and I spend every other Thanksgiving with the Gurrs, or Quists. Since this is an "odd" year, we were scheduled to have Thanksgiving dinner with the Gurrs this year. A list of things came up in the Gurr family, (work schedules, knee surgery, out of state visit scheduling conflicts etc..) that made it impossible for all of us to get together for Thanksgiving. We realized that we could all get together on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, and since we seem to have the most available carpeted floor space for sleeping on, everyone decided to come up here to Taylor for our "Thanksgiving reunion".
Family members started arriving on Monday and by Monday night we had 27 Gurrs settled in. We spent Monday night visiting and Reminicing. We had a blast laughing at hilarious Gurr memories. Adam's sister Stacey presented Mom and Dad with a beautiful book of memories and testimonies written by all of their children. It was so fun to laugh together as the stories were told.
Tuesday was filled with buggy rides, Rook games, a Tresure hunt, and "Gurr Games".
Aunt Celeste organized the Gurr games. We had fun running three legged races, having sack races and tossing eggs. I didn't win any of the events ( I know, shocker right!?) but every one was kind enough to let me get the coveted Almond Roca prize. Thanks guys.
We had a wonderful feast, thanks to all of the talented Gurr women and their amazing cooking skills. Also thanks to the guys, who got the kids out of the way by taking them on a buggy ride.
We were sad when it was time to say goodbye to everyone. I'm already looking foreword to another Gurr reunion.
I'm now ready to decorate for Christmas! Yipee! LET THE CHRISTMAS SEASON BEGIN!!!!
