Thanksgiving 2012!

Hello all! My apologies for being away so long....technical issues with the blog prevented me from updating after Halloween, and then things just got so busy with the upcoming (and now past!) holidays, that I just didn't have time to catch up....well here I am again!

Where to start!? Well...since it's been awhile, why not just jump right into anothe rholiday directly from Halloween...Thanksgiving!

We traveled to Connecticut to visit both sides of the family, once again...the drive was actually pretty decent, considering we left kind of late. There was lots of cars  on the road, but we got to read books, play iPod games, and listen to music. We also got to plug in the DVD player, and watch some movies, which is always nice. :-)

This trip was a bit different, since my Uncle Mat and Aunt Mallory let us use their place for the weekend. They were away for the holiday, so we got to have a little place all to ourselves this time! We had a lot of fun watching TV, relaxing, and it was nice having a little home base right in between all of our family and friend visits. Thanks, guys!!!

First we stopped off at Gramma Debbie's for is typical, I am told that the food was delicious, but I skipped the traditional Thanksgiving fare, instead feasting on my usual staples...

 I got to see my cousins and play with them a lot, which is always fun....

we went straight to the big bed, and jumped around like crazy people!!
Uncle Steve joined in, and no matter what we did, we couldn't get a non-blurry shot of Brae! She was just moving too fast!!
In the evening, we went to Gramma Mindy's for dinner, and got to see lots of Mom's side of the family! My cousin Hank was there, and I showed him a lot of the toys that Gramma Mindy had for me to play with...
I had made a centerpiece at school out of a box and a pine cone....this is the centerpiece making an appearance at Gramma Mindy's (though it traveled well, and it also made an appearance at the table at Gramma Debbie's as well.)

 I think I did a pretty good job, and everyone was excited to have it on the table!
The evening culminated in a dance party where I showed off some of my moves to the One Direction song I like. Hank even got into the act, too!
We were both dancing up a storm, and I think everyone really enjoyed it!

They even let me do it a second time. How cool is that?!
The next day, Mom, Dad, Gramma Mindy and I all went shopping to get some supplies for our new cat that was coming to live with us a few days after Thanksgiving! We bought lots of great stuff to make her feel welcome (and to also prevent her from pooping all over the apartment) and afterwards we got to go out to lunch at Friendly's (Also the home of some amazing ice Mom noted, I ate my cone without it ever dripping...beat that!)

In addition to seeing some of Mom and Dad's friends, we spent some more time at Gramma Debbie's before we left, too...
I even performed an encore of my One Direction dance number, this time tapping Nick as my backup dancer...
It was a truly full Thanksgiving busy, but everything seemed to work out pretty well! Isn't it nice when that happens!?
