This will be a blog about the Pilgrims.
Okay, that’s not true. This is about Thanksgiving this year, which was the first for my darling nephew Camden.
Mostly just photos, this was a pretty uneventful Thanksgiving.
Here is the beautiful table my mother set (and the beautiful girl my sister made!)
Two of my favorite children:
And we wanted one good picture of the little guy on his first Thanksgiving.
Very cute, and two seconds later he grabbed the camera. Then he’d crawl away. As a full-fledged crawler, it’s so hard to get him to sit for a photo. Never had this problem with Arionna.
So my sister suggested I hold him.
Again, cute, but not the photo we were looking for.
Well, that’s pretty darling, but a little blurry around the edges.
And after that…I almost stopped. I figured they don’t get much cuter than that. But he was suddenly being cooperative, so…
Oh my. Holding the orange pumpkin and sitting and smiling? Yep, that’s the money shot. Such a cutie.
He was a HUGE fan of Thanksgiving dinner. He ate everything we put in front of him, didn’t flinch. The boy loves to eat. He just loves food…so long as he can feed himself. He just kept shoveling it in, over and over.
Later, Arionna made a Christmas Countdown Chain with Grandma and Uncle Zack. She gets so excited each morning to wake up and tear off the ring, getting her one day closer to Christmas.
Finally, just before Simon arrived and chaos ensued, we wanted one nice picture of Cam with his GiGi. We have a couple pics, but nothing really nice.
I definitely think that qualifies. Even she is slightly smiling.
I hope your Thanksgiving was beautiful and that you were grateful for the things you have. I’m grateful, among other things, for you, my wonderful blog readers.
