We were all set to head to Iowa for Thanksgiving to visit Shannon's parents when his mom came down with a terrible chest cold. We stayed home instead. Thanksgiving Eve the kids decided to be awake in the middle of the night so we had cheese and crackers at 2:30am. We all slept in a little and I made pancakes. I thought they would nap quite a while after breakfast but they decided they wanted to watch the last half hour of the parade. They loved the music and danced around the living room. Then the real excitement came - the National Dog Show! They pulled their little rocking chairs to the center of the room and kept saying "woof woof woof woof"!
Although we didn't have anything fancy to eat or special to do, it was nice to spend a day down as a family. We haven't had that in a while.
A few days later, my mom came to visit and brought some pumpkin pie leftovers from my aunt Robyn. The kids seemed to really enjoy it...I think they had a little pie with their Cool Whip!
