We had a fun Thanksgiving holiday! Hayden’s Grandma Goodwin (Nanny) was here with her friend Dave, and we did our usual routine of going to Grandpaman and Grandma G’s on Thanksgiving Day and Grandma and Grandpa’s on the following day. Hayden was a pretty well behaved boy during both events, although he did find it hard to sit at the table for too long at Grandpaman’s house. He was starving by the time we sat down to eat, so in order to keep him from going crazy we were feeding him as the dishes were still going around. There were 19 people there (!), and by the time everyone’s plates had food piled high and we’d said our thanks and cheers, he was just about done eating. Luckily, the way the room was arranged he could not get out of the dining room because people were blocking the exits, so he stayed near enough that we didn’t have to run after him too much. My cousin Mandy and her parents, Aunt Marilyn and Uncle Bill, came down from Chicago as well as Grandma G’s brother and his family and her aunt and uncle. Add to that the five of us and Grandma G’s parents, and it was certainly a full house!
Grandma’s was fun, too, and Hayden had a great time as always playing with his cousins. There was a kid’s table set up, so he got to sit off with his cousins for dinner. He did a good job with that. Jesse and Robby actually finished their food much faster than Hayden, so John sat with him for a while as he felt badly he was sitting by himself. 😉
