We had a great Thanksgiving with all the Floyd crew.  We head to Tipton Oklahoma where all of Kory's mom's siblings and families meet up.  I think at the peak of the weekend there were 45 people there.  Most of the crew we only see every other Thanksgiving so it is such a great time to catch up and enjoy each other!  Its yet another time that I'm so thankful to have married into such a wonderful Godly and FUN family!  

Kory's mom, Tye, Clint, Sayler and Hayven all came from Montana so that was REALLY great.  We missed Wes and Sydni...maybe next time.  

Sayler was holding Jaylie within minutes of us getting there.  Sweet girls.  

Uncle Clint and Uncle Tye.  Lots of these pictures are of Jaylie meeting family for the first time. 

Hayven, q, and Sayler playing in the leaves.  This "smile" of Quinn's was killing me.  He would look at the girls and how they were smiling and then would do this. I think he thought his smile looked like theirs.  Not so much, Q.  

klp had fun in the rocks...why are rocks so great?

These are a couple of Kory's cousin's daughters (did ya get that?) Judith and Jaylee holding Jaylie.  Yes we doubled up on the name Jaylie.  Couldn't help it.  Kanyon kept calling Jaylee Floyd "Big baby Jaylie" haha.  

Phillips cousins....

The gals.  j must've been feeling pouty. 

Is this cuteness or what??????

Q loves any chance to hold his baby sister

Hayven being a big girl...too bad Jaylie was being a big BABY and crying! 

This cracks me up.  

Cousin Heather with her daughter Hannah and Sayler. As you can see, there were plenty of willing arms for Jaylie June.  

Aunt Geneva and Uncle John. They are SAINTS.  Its their house that we invade and they make wonderful food, great accommodations for everyone and are the most gracious of hosts.  

Leslee and her turkey platter....I took the picture before the turkey's face was done. Leslee was the lucky one that Jaylie decided to throw up on EVERY TIME SHE HELD HER.  J isn't even a spitter upper, but she was when Leslee held her.  ha.  

Everyone outside shelling pecans

Cousins Wes, Drake, and Hanna with Kan Man.  All of my kids were in HEAVEN the whole week with the fun and so sweet playmates! 

Uncle Tye and June (as he calls her) having a nice chat.  You'd be amazed to see this bachelor with babies and kids...he just knows what to do.  Even with the tiny babies.  Pretty great.

Caleb ringing the famous dinner bell.  

The "Phillips kid table" 

I HAD to take another picture when I realized Tye was sitting there too. 

Kory's Aunt and Uncle live near and used to work for Tipton Children's home.  There was a "cottage" with about 9 rooms and several bathrooms where most of us stayed. It was fun and klp is still talking about the "hotel".  We were right next door to Clint and his girls and they had so much fun at night.  My kids are ruining this cute picture, but I just love this group right here.  Makes my heart so happy.  

Sweet sweet Sayler read the boys a story one night

The next picture I took was of Kanyon BALLING his eyes out when the story was over and Sayler had to leave.  He loves her so much.  He kissed her on the lips and she graciously smiled and then discretely wiped the slobber off her face. ha!

I somehow stopped taking pictures 2 days into the week.  Bummer.  We had a GREAT time and even the travel wasn't too bad.  It took 7 hours to get there and 8 to get home.  I was pleasantly surprised with how good the boys did.  Happy Thanksgiving!
