BUT, before all things Christmas come all things Turkey. Here's a little review of our Turkey Day with Hubs' family:
The day started with Tom the Blue Heron paying us a visit. He comes around periodically to hunt frogs in our creek, and he is so named because one day Sweets and I were watching him out the window and I asked him what the heron's name was and Sweets said "Tom!" I suspect this was because Thomas the Train was on TV at the time ;) Tom is awesome, we love it when he stops by!
Then we headed over to GiGi's house (Hubs' grandma) for the day. How grown-up does Sweetie Pea look in his baby argyle? I could squish him he looked so cute.
While the ladies worked in the kitchen, Sweets mingled with the menfolk and read some books with Uncle B.
And then...the moment I had been waiting for! Sweetie Pea's first Thanksgiving dinner! I had visions of him cramming his little mouth with turkey and mashed potatoes and maybe even cranberry sauce. And what do you think he ate? This?
Ha ha ha. No.
He ate this:
Yeah, turkey dinner FAIL. He wouldn't touch any of it. Oh well. Maybe next year.
And then we shook off our turkey comas to take this family picture in honor of Hubs' amazing cousin E, who was home for the holiday on leave from the United States Naval Academy. Go E!
Sweets was already in bed. He had a big day!
Onward to Christmas - I can't wait!
