Jayson's family does themed Thanksgiving events. This year was "Old West."
(kids were excited they got to wear their Halloween costumes again). We basically made all the costumes ourselves.
Our little posse- Calamity Jane, Jesse James, Texas Jack, and Lily Olay.
There were games for the kids and adults. Ambree loved the horse race and Grandma let her keep her lucky horse at the end. She sleeps with it! For dinner we had BBQ, corn bread, salad, and Root beer.
Here is our Saloon piano player.
Here we are at the Root Beer bar of the Saloon. All the adult card games were played in the Saloon that we decorated. The winners of each circle got to participate in a shoot out at high noon.

Here are the finalists. We also had an amazing talent show to top off the evening. Jayson sang a cowboy song with his 7 brothers and I sang, "He shouldn't, Hadn't-a,Oughtn't-a Swang Me" from The Great Race. It was very fun, but the kids were exhausted (and the mom!) after the long eventful day.

How fun! We just got your Christmas card. You have such a cute family! I was confused by Jayson's favorite thing until I saw this post. You make a cute saloon girl!
