Actual Thanksgiving Day was spent with my parents, Uncle Dwight, James, Aunt Donna & Uncle Dennis, and (of course!) MawMaw & PawPaw. We had a great time visiting with them. Elijah quickly learned to saw "MawMAW", "PawPAW", and "Donna." He even passed out our Christmas treats to everyone.
There were a few Christmas surprises for Elijah too during our visit. The first hit was a dancing, singing, spasmodic Christmas dog. You press its paw and off it goes. Elijah loved dancing to it and getting us to dance with him. Some uncles were happy to just watch the dancing action. [Not pictured] MawMaw and PawPaw got down with Elijah and the singing Christmas dog quite a few times.
While not a dancer, Grandpa did get down on the floor to build large block towers.
We worked our way through several Yahtzee cards during this trip. PawPaw apparently had his roll a little off because he didn't win every game! MawMaw was proud to Yahtzee on ones several times, much to Eric's chagrin.
Other highlights of the trip included going for a long walk with Uncle Dwight, walking with Mom, getting our hands on a Phil & Ted's stroller (and the ridiculous poop episode that ensued there), and a delicious Cracker Barrel dinner. Lord willing, we'll be back again real soon~:-)
