We had Thanksgiving Saturday with the boys and their families. Started with the traditional Strawberry Crepes in the morning. Turkey and pie in the late afternoon and evening. Vicki made some homemade cranberry sauce and got some really really good frozen corn that Trenton loved (and surprisingly he was a big fan of the cranberries as well).
Also, right after dinner he was coming around the table and pointed at me and with very soft "p's" said "Papa". First time. And only time, so far. But he got it right. He's bursting with almost words.
Kevin and Marken brought a Wii and we played a bit with that. Trenton actually got interested in the bowling game when he saw how the remote makes things happen on the screen. If he'd learn to use the button at the same time, he could probably actually bowl himself. He has the swinging motion down.
We lined up for our Christmas picture, and I got to use my new LightSphere that Megan recoomended to me (Thanks, Megan!).
Sunday Kevin and Marken left for St. Louis -- Kevin had a small job he needed to get to. I went out the same time Brian and Kristin did to get a tree. Got a nice one. $80!!! Is it really that nice? Well, it is pretty nice. A beautiful Noble Fir.
Got the lights up on it last night.
Tonight's Rob and Kathy's party, and this weekend will be a whirlwind of tree decorating, babysitting, cookie baking, candy making ... let the Christmas Music roll!!!! (I hold out until about this time for the most part, sneaking a few in only here and there.)
