Hmmm. At the rate we are going, this “three part update” might turn out to be a continuing series!
If you recall from the last post, we had left off with Mike’s birthday – which was three weeks ago now! And we are back to that old cliché – time fly’s when you’re having fun (or is it time’s fun when you’re having flies – I never can remember…). The next day was Thanksgiving…
Thanksgiving certainly was special this year. The holiday’s are time for celebrating with family. Sure – technically this was Mike’s 2nd Thanksgiving. But last year, we had just brought him home from the hospital. As “brand new parents” (ahhh – those were the days), we were having trouble keeping up with AM and PM – we certainly had no idea what day of the week it was.
And with our current job “situation”, any time that we get to spend together as a family means so much to us! And being able to spend five whole days together – it was the first time we were able to spend five days in a row for over 7 months – it really was something to cherish.
Mike’s “Nan” had come in the day before. And we had one more visitor joining us. After some successful visits to the “eye doctor”, Mike’s “Grandpa Lee” was cleared to make the trip to K-town! So he hoped in the car Thursday morning and headed our way.
We had a wonderful time with some fabulous food. A really wonderful “long” weekend and a great way to officially kick off the holiday season! And have no worries if you weren’t able to make it to our house this year. We plan on having Thanksgiving dinner at our house again next year! It’ll be a “double party” since Mike’s birthday will be on Thanksgiving next year. Come and join us!!!
Mike and Nan checking out the “Black Friday” adds. Mike is already picking out toys!
We fixed so much food – there’s not an inch of counter space to spare!

Is this stuff done yet?
Mike is suited up and ready to eat!
Everybody’s happy after a full belly!!!
