Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone had a very happy and blessed Thanksgiving.  We spent our Thanksgiving at Andy and Mindy’s house.  It was so nice of them to offer to host this year since Mindy is now 38 weeks pregnant.  We were hoping that Baby C would make his/her appearance, but we’re still waiting.  We had a wonderful traditional turkey dinner with pumpkin swirl cheesecake for dessert that Mindy made; it was excellent.  After our Thanksgiving meal, we headed downtown to go to the Festival of Trees & Lights.  None of us have ever been before, so it was neat to see.  Right when we walked in the door, there was Santa Claus and a train.  Jaxson couldn’t decide what he wanted to go see first.  We stopped at “Ho Ho” first and Jaxson yelled “hi” to him.  I told him that he needed to go tell Santa what he wanted for Christmas.  So he ran up to him and stopped right in front and yelled “Choo Choo” then ran back to me.  The only way I could get him to sit on his lap was by bribing him with riding the train.  Once I said that, he ran right up there and sat right next to him.  Then it was off to the train, which he ended up riding three times.  Then we went to see all of the beautifully decorated Christmas trees.  Many of the businesses in town donate their time and money and decorate a Christmas tree and they go all out.  All of the money that they raise goes to the Blank Children’s Hospital.

“Mommy, I’ve said ‘cheese’ ten times already!”
“Please, please, please bring me a choo choo.”
“Hey Santa, give me some knucks.”
Jaxson’s favorite thing to do at night now is to eat ice cream in front of the fireplace.
