Christmas and Thanksgiving breakfast at the Nickodemus house always means "Sticky Buns" more commonly known as Monkey Bread.
For our big Turkey dinner we enjoyed a fun mix of the Nickodemus and Wood family!
L-R: Neola, Uncle Steve, Aunt Becky, Me, Beckham, Graham, Josh, Lisa, John, Luke.
Thank you photo shop magic for getting everyone in the picture! (Lisa and I took turns taking a picture and then I used an automated Photoshop program to merge them.)
Josh and Luke
Becky brought a fun dinosaur activity and Beckham, who is mega into dinosaurs, was thrilled!
We had two gravy's this year! I made the usual Roux gravy with flour and butter.
Then, Aunt Becky showed me how to make a gluten/dairy free corn starch slurry gravy!
John and Aunt Becky
Of course there must be Pinochle.
John's creative score keeping
Beckham likes to be a dinosaur and has made the keen observation that dinosaurs don't wear clothes.
We played the Highlights Hidden Pictures app for a bit!
We were joined later by the third leg of the Wood Family, Stephanie, Mike, Eli and Gabe.
Here's we've depicted the great adventure of getting everyone to look and smile the same direction!
Gabe are getting old enough to enjoy the famous marble game! My mom AND Neola both had a set and both saved their sets for when kids come over!
we we're joined by all!
It was a great day of fun games and family!
The funny part is that my dad and Cheri were having Thanksgiving dinner with Cherri's son and family who are also the Woods!
