Thanksgiving: November 25, 2010

Highlights from today: (click here for pictures)

  • Everyone must have been excited about the holiday this morning since they were all up before 7.  The kids played in the den with all of their toys while Robby ran and Tara cooked.
  • Next it was time to get ready for our first Thanksgiving meal at Grannymom and Grandpa’s house.  Josh and Zach arrived shortly after we did and the boys couldn’t have been more excited. 
  • As we were eating, Robby and Uncle Les offered Anderson a dollar to eat his green beans.  Reagan decided to take her Dad up on the challenge and gobbled hers down (gagging briefly) and then reached to grab his 5 dollar bill!  Anderson decided that he should also eat his and quickly finished his
  • After playing and eating and even eating some more, Grannymom had a painting project for the kids.  They boys painted lizards and Reagan had a heart to paint.  Then Reagan opened her birthday present from Josh and Zach.  It was princess paper dolls and she loved it.  We played with it all afternoon and even took it to Nonna’s to play more
  • Campbell eventually fell asleep and took her nap in Grannymom’s room and Graham fell asleep while sitting on Grannymom’s lap.  When they started pulling food back out, we said our goodbyes and headed to Nonna’s house
  • Nonna and Pops were waiting on us and the kids were hungry again.  After eating supper, Campbell, Graham and Campbell ate as much jello as they could get their hands on.  Pops had to feed Campbell and she would still be sitting there eating jello if he would have kept feeding her
  • The kids played more after supper while we made our shopping plan for tomorrow.  Next it was time for home and bed.
  • I forgot to mention the other night about Anderson and his medicine.  I had given him some Benadryl and pulled the stopper in the sink while he finished his medicine.  When I returned, the stopper had been opened and there was medicine in the sink.  I immediately poured him more and watched him drink it.  He turned up the cup and guzzled it all and then I started wondering if maybe he had drank some or most of his other medicine because he knew it would taste good the second time and didn’t hesitate. 
  • Needless to say, after two doses of Benadryl he slept well that night.  So well that he woke up and told Mom that he was hot and sweaty.  He said he was so sweaty that even his underwear was sweaty.  Mom quickly realized it wasn’t sweat-he vehemently disagreed but Mom did insist he change his clothes.  Where was Dad during all of this?  Sleeping in Anderson’s wet bed-Dad thought it was just damp from our sweaty boy-it wasn’t sweat!
