Boy did I have a wonderful Thanksgiving! I actually got four Thanksgivings. That’s not bad for my first time! The Sunday before Thanksgiving one of Mommy and Daddy’s friends, Hollie, had some friends over for a Thanksgiving meal while watching the Colts game. (Speaking of which, what is going on with Adam Viniteri? When did he become such a lame-o kicker?) Then on Tuesday my day care had a Thanksgiving lunch and parents could come have lunch with their kids. Mommy and Daddy came to the lunch and they sat in the infant room with me and ate their meal. It was funny because they had to sit in these little kid chairs at a little kid table. So silly! Then Thursday was real Thanksgiving and we went to Grandpaman’s and Grandma G’s. Mommy’s cousin Mandy came to celebrate Thanksgiving with us. I love when she comes to visit because she has these fun nursery rhymes that she sings to me. She brought all these photos of Mommy’s and her grandparents when they were young adults. They had a great time looking through them all with Grandpaman and hearing stories about what my great grandparents were like. It turns out my mommy looks a lot like my great grandma! Mandy gave Mommy a beautiful picture of Great Grandma Harfst that she is going to scan in and put on this site soon so you can be the judge. Daddy thinks Great Grandma Harfst was a hottie!
So back to all my Thanksgivings… Friday we went to Grandma and Grandpa Hammond’s for my final Thanksgiving. I got to see my cousins Jesse and Robby and my aunts and uncles. I had a lot of fun. It won’t be long before I am causing all kinds of trouble with my big cousins!
Mommy’s friend Emily is in town from San Francisco, so last Monday she and Daddy went out to dinner with her, Reena, Sunil, Tom, and Tracy. I stayed home and Grandpaman and Grandma G came over. Mommy put me to sleep before she left, and I stayed asleep for about 45 minutes. Then I woke up and it was time to PARTY! Oh, they tried everything to get me to go back to sleep, but I laughed at their feeble attempts. They thought I was going to sleep when I had my grandparents over?! That is far to exciting for sleep! We hung out; I made sure they didn’t steal anything. It was the best!
This weekend we put up the Christmas tree and decorations. I love looking at the twinkly lights on the Christmas tree. Mommy says I have to be really good so Santa brings me lots of presents. I said to her, ‘Mommy, haven’t you been paying attention? I’ve been the best baby for nearly 4 months now!’ Sheesh — what is she like! 😛
