We enjoyed a cozy, relaxed Thanksgiving yesterday here in Virginia. We kept things pretty low-key and we liked it that way. It was nice having Chris around more and getting to spend time together as a family. Here’s how we spent our day.
Brendan really loved watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade, which surprised me at first. He had fun seeing all of the balloons and different floats, especially when a train float appeared. The boy loves his trains.
Brendan had some computer time with Chris. Brendan loves to go to the Starfall website and practice his letters.
Brendan attempted to help in the kitchen but ended up just playing with the camera’s remote feature. I had lost the remote several months ago and recently found it in my car when we cleaned it out, so I thought it would be fun to use it again. Brendan went a little nuts with it.
After a delicious dinner, we all relaxed by playing with Play-Doh. Brendan could do this all day.
We finally ended the night by playing Brendan’s favorite game on the Wii, MarioKart, since Brendan loves to race. He hold his own controller and plays along with us even though his isn’t on- but don’t tell Brendan that.
All in all, it was a fabulous day and we have so much leftover pie that we’ll be set for the next week. And now it’s time to get ready for Christmas!
