Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone out there in cyberspace! Check out the awesome hat I made in daycare. Cool, huh?
We had a wonderful day today. We all went to Great-Grammy Mary's house for dinner and to celebrate all that we are thankful for. Mimi and Pop-Pop were there and so were Uncle Jon, Aunt Jenn, Cousin Jack, Jack's Po-Po and Yee-Yee Shari, Tutu, Sir, Auntie Nora, Great-Grandma Betty, and friends Terry and Dele. Whew, it was a full house!
Here I am with Dada. His birthday is tomorrow. He's going to be 35 but don't tell anyone. He is my bestest buddy!
It was a lovely day today so we all sat outside while we waited for dinner to be ready. Here I am with Sir on the porch swing. Wheeee...
Here I am with Tutu. She gave me lots of horsey rides...
Here's Jack with Aunt Nora. I think he likes her cuz he was flirting with her all day. Silly, boy!
Then Jack and I decided to form a band. Jack loved the drums and I favored the maracas...
Then Jack switched to the flute. He really can blow...
Then Uncle Jon joined our group but I think there was some creative spat between Jack and Jon regarding the flute so we had to break up. And I was so looking forward to taking our band on the road. Oh well...

Here's a cute little video of some of our rehearsal...we had such potential!
Then it was time for dinner. Mama bought us boys a really cool hat to wear. Jack didn't like his too much so Aunt Jenn wore it instead...
Here I am in my hat. I'm a pilgrim...
Jack could not WAIT to dig into dinner, He kept saying "big chicken" and even managed to score a whole turkey leg. Lucky...

After dinner, we celebrated Mimi's birthday, which is today! We got her this neat cake. When you blow on it, the candle goes out. None of us could figure out how it worked. Check out this video...you won't believe your eyes!
But all good things have to come to an end. Here we are all clean and ready to go home for the night. One last hug for Mimi to wish her a happy birthday! Wow, what a day...
Hope you all had something to be thankful for. I sure did. I'm thankful for good times, family, friends and of course Yo Gabba Gabba. Well we are off to spend the weekend in La Quinta with Tutu and Sir. It's our first visit of the season! Stay tuned...
