Thanksgiving in Medford

We left Meford last Tuesday and Wednesday most people had to work, so we took the opportunity to have a family day. The best part of the family day was the fact we were complete; Jeremiah, his brother and mom moved back to Medford this summer so we were able to get lots of time with him and actually have true family time. We went up to Ashland on Wednesday, it is one of my favorite places to spend a day... a cute little town, that has charm and fun shops, restaurants and a great park.

One of my favorite shops in Paddington's which is fully decked out with Christmas decorations this time of year. Here is Syrah in their "silver" section... after this photo I forgot I even had a camera!

A group shot outside the Chocolate Factory. The bear has been a family photo opportunity each year we make it to Ashland. This year the bear was inside; we asked the owners why and they said it was a "city ordinance" that it could no longer be outside. They told us to take him outside for the photo and we were grateful... a big bear like that needs hugs and photos!

At Lithia park the boys found a huge rock to climb. The problem... no way down but to jump!!!

On Thanksgiving we went to Jake & Jaime's house (Bill's brother & sister-in-law). Jaime did an amazing job with the food. I was so busy playing with the kids and visiting I hardly took any photos, but I grabbed a very few. Again, the highlight for us was that for the first time we were able to spend Thanksgiving with Jeremiah!!

The only picture I have of Sadie and McKayla and McKayla was on the move as you can see!!

Koen and Syrah were playing with the kitchen stuff for quite some time!!!

Friday we spend some more time together as a family and Jeremiah's brother Ceth joined us. It was fun to go to the park together and let the kids play!!! They all get along so well and Ceth is a really good kid, we were glad he could spend the day with us too.

We had some great photos taken at the park!
Sadie, Syrah, Jeremiah & Ceth

I just love this picture... This is Penny, she is the sweetest dog and I have a similar picture of Sadie several years ago. Penny is a great family dog and wonderful with the kids!

Koen & Uncle Billy; they had such a good time playing together and we hope that we are able to see the kids more often - they are growing up so fast!!

We did our best to take a family photo with Grandpa Bill & Grandma Cindy; after several tries this one turned out pretty good!!! This was our last night in Medford and it was good night! It went by too fast!
