There are so many things to be thankful for but I think my most precious 'things' came for dinner today. We were missing Trevor, Cassie, Ellis and Alaire because they got to make Thanksgiving memories with all the Oakes is Boston this year. We will get to spend time with them in December for Christmas.
Proche and Isaiah were all smiles. I think Isaiah has grown a few inches since I saw him last.
Pappy teaching Sam how to watch Sports Center on his first Thanksgiving!
Funny but Pappy usually looks like this when he watches Sports Center.
The dogs got to spend some quality time together outside while we were eating dinner. They are such moochers. Looks like Maddie had a good time rolling in something. She just earned herself a little bath.
Bryce getting his carving lesson like he does every year. Actually I think he is the taste tester.
Stick a fork in us I think we are done.
Aunt Sarah took Isaiah out to see The Girls.
I know...girlie pink chicken shoes don't really seem like something he should be wearing. But none of the others were big enough...chicken shoes are a must. You should have seen Sarah's.
This is some serious business.
And look what he found in the nesting box...a green egg!
Uncle Bryce feelin' the love.
The official Sam's First Thanksgiving Family Photo. I think he opened his eyes once.
I saw a picture posted on FB by one of my Lower Terrace families (Laura Dale, it was your picture) of a Blessings Tablecloth. The idea is that each year whoever sits around your Thanksgiving table gets to sign the tablecloth with the things they are thankful for. I used one of Mark's Mom's tablecloths that I inherited. I think it is going to be something that I will cherish. I will probably get it out for Christmas also.
