We had Peter going us this year so it was extra sweet. (At the table: Front looking at the camera is cousin Peter Casey, behind and left Trenton, moving right, Brock and Cyle on the far right.
This is pretty serious work you know. Everything needs to be just so.

Yes this is a picture of Aaron and Eric working on a puzzle?!. They spent hours. Debbie, Allison and I also helped. The little kids helped too. Yeah, it never got finished. But Kyson and a great time piling up all the pieces.
This is a picture of our "Rock Band" Terin on drums, Trent on the mic and Dylan on bass guitar. While Jake waits for his next turn. The boys had a good time while waiting for dinner. After breakfast the guys all went out shooting. When they got back to the house we took some family pictures. Allison was our photographer. I'm sure they will turn out great, but I can't wait to see. This will be our first family picture with the baby. EVERYONE in the Sherwood family was home this Thanksgiving.
This is a picture of the family dinner in the dining room. We had 24 adults and 12 kids! I don't know if you have ever tried to feed that many people in one house before, it is a house full. I hope everyone enjoyed to food and company. I thought it turned out great. And it only took 2 days to do all of the dishes. Not too bad.

Saturday Nov. 8th. It's Aaron's Birthday! He wanted to take the family riding. We went just out of Phoenix to the west I think to Box Canyon. It was beautiful. It was warm and sunny. Grandpa and Grandma Sherwood came and drove the Ranger. Brock road with them. Ron and his family also came, Ron drove his 4x4, I can't remember what he calls it? His daughter, Gena drove her green Tahoe. Mary and the kids rode with Gena, BRAVE. She is 16 and this was her first time out. She did great. Aaron, Cyle and I rode bikes and Trent kept right up on the Raptor. We had lunch up in the canyon. Climbed some rocks. Went threw some old abandoned homes. I didn't even wreck! Actually, nobody got hurt. A few scrapes was about all. We made it back to the trucks just before the sun went down. It was a long day, but it was a fun day with everyone. I think Aaron had a happy birthday. We stayed the rest of the weekend at mom and dad's in Maricopa. We went out with Brock and Maryanna, and Ron and Mary that night while Cyle was nice enough to watch the kids for us. Sunday we visited friends some more and mom bought stake for dinner and brought home cake and ice cream. What more could a guy want?
Trent dressed up as a Clown - "The crazy cousin of the Joker" Brock was a rabbit hunter. He was called GI-Joe a few times. Funny, he doesn't know who GI-Joe is?
And Kamryn was the little Cotton Tail that got away (from Brock, the rabbit hunter) There was a costume parade down town after school that we all joined in, and then we had all of the cousins that were in town over for a B-B-Q. The kids all had fun trick-or-treating. Cyle went with some friends, I think he was a bmx rider, he didn't even take a bag, he just ate it as he went along. Trent went with a friend and had lots of candy when he got home. Brock and Kamryn went to the trunk-or-treat that really wasn't. Not too many came this year. We had little Kyson with us and after the trunk-or-treat Uncle Aaron took the little boys around on the ranger. They had a bag of candy and frozen noses when they got home, I guess that is what you call success. Brittany came for her first visit home about 9 o'clock that night and was able to see the kids all dressed up. My treat for Halloween was getting to see her. It is so nice when the older kids come home. By 10:30 Brock was passed out on the floor next to his candy and Trent was crashed out on the couch. Like I said, it was fun.

The weather was beautiful. The water was clean and warm. The boat ran great. I don't know how it could have been better. We stayed at a hotel in Page. It is just so much nicer than camping. Cyle and Trent took their bikes and Brock had his scooter, so we found a couple of skate parks along the way. The best one ever is the one in Flagstaff. The one in Page was not set up for the younger boys. So, tomorrow Brittany and Terin are coming!!!
