Thanksgiving 2011

For Thanksgiving this year, we headed to Jason’s aunt’s house (about an hour and a half(?) from us).  We did this two years ago also, and it’s really fun because Jason’s cousins have 2 little girls a little older than Russell, and his step-cousin has a son a year older than Russell.  It is definitely a bit crazy with all those kids running around!

The Thanksgiving chefs and hostesses, Aunt Nancy and Kathy:


The guys watching football and talking:



Poor little Meredith would.not.nap.ALL.DAY.  (Should I really say “poor Meredith,” or should I say “poor Mommy and Daddy?”)  She catnapped in the car for maybe 45 minutes total over the day.  I think the combination of too many people, unfamiliar place, lots of driving, and lots of commotion just got to her.  She was really good considering, but completely broke down around 5:30.  We went back to Jason’s parents house, where we stayed the weekend, and she was asleep by 6:30 and slept until 7 am.


Since we got to Nancy’s house around 12:30, we put Russell down for a nap immediately.  He did great – went right to sleep and slept for 2 hours.  But that meant he didn’t eat with all of us, since we ate at 2.  So here’s the kids’ table – minus sleeping Russell:


And then he woke up…I really like this picture of me and Russell even though it’s a phone pic!


We had a nice time with family!  Happy Thanksgiving – I’m ready for my favorite, Christmas!
