Giving Thanks and Eating Us Some Turkey

Thanksgiving this year was mellow and fun. We went to Jake's folks house and tried to get there early enough to help out, but Connie was so organized that there wasn't much left to do! She cooked a great meal with such yummy gravy. I think that was Parker's favorite part, too. He was even willing to try some new things. He tried stuffing and sweet potatoes and fruit salad with whipped cream, but he wouldn't touch the cranberry sauce. He probably would have just spit it out anyway!

Last year he didn't want to nap on Thanksgiving, and this year was no different. I was hoping the turkey would help him get sleepy, but he almost always fights napping when all of us are together. I think on Christmas we may not bother even trying! He's always more of a grump after having a nap anyway.

Parker spent the night at Grandma and Grandpa's so we could have a break and he could have some fun. The next day, Connie and Dan took him to the mall and took pictures by the big Christmas tree like they did last year (wish I had some photos of last year to share). It's a new special tradition they're starting with him! How fun. Here are some awesome pics they took.
