Thanksgiving summarized...

We had a daily schedule...


Us girls went and got our nails done...


While the boys played basketball...


The horses were ridden everyday...


Even the young ones learned to cantor....



We ate at the Creamery diner...


And had a talent show...
Andrew was the MC. He wore a different hat in between introductions



Madey linked toes for her talent. 


The cousin twins did a synchronized routine that was perfectly appropriate for their inseparable week. 


Amy's girls did a dance to the Lion King song. Amazing!


We sang along to the Ukulele. 




Dad read 'Twas the Night Before Christmas' in his cajun voice. 


We sat around and visited--a ton. TV was a non factor.



Except when it came to sports--LSU sports...



We ate generously...



I don't think I've ever heard my mom say to take shoes off when you come in the house. But someone started a trend that everyone followed. I kind of liked it. 


We took long walks on the levee...


Uncle Craig came up with an intense scavenger hunt around the neighborhood. 


The Olympic games involved hitting a gold ball over the river. 


I think Andrew went to the theater three times. I wasn't up for the late nighters. But I could hang with these guys.


And night games...


Spending the holiday with family was quite a success. Another great memory made. Love them!

Clawson Cousins...

This is a bit of a photo dump of this past week. I have so many photos that I lifted off my aunts. This post is more just of the people. More action shots later.







Family of 7 girls. Shelby, the oldest, is married to Curtis. 



These girls were inseparable all week. 











Although I look horrid, I had to post cause my auntie looks so great.
