Thankful

Yesterday, I had my first Thanksgiving at Lara and Talon's place in Virginia. Thanks for inviting us! Yes, we had to cross a state line in order to find friends with which to have Thanksgiving. Lara and Talon and their friends were very nice and put up with me. Lara's cats weren't quite as happy. I managed to get one by the scruff. Apparently cats don't like it when babies attack them. Hum... The doggies at the park don't seem to mind.

We, of course, don't have any pictures. Daddy had all the food ready on time, but I wasn't ready. In all the rush to get me, my toys, my jacket, etc, etc out the door, Mommy forgot the camera. So no pictures of me eating turkey. No pictures of me stealing Mommy's drum stick while she tried (key word: tried!) to play the drums for the video game Rock Band - she was really bad... for those who know the game: she had to get saved twice. (In her defense, she did have only one drum stick for half of the song.) So instead of cute Thanksgiving pictures, here's some other fall related pictures and generally cute pictures for your enjoyment.



Grandma Ai came out to visit last weekend and we played in the leaves. She made me wear shoes, which I hated... though my feet didn't get wet or cold which was nice. (BTW I now hate shoes a little less than last week.)



G'a ma also got me a birthday present (that I like) - Tow Mater Ride on. I love it!! I push the (annoying) buttons every morning. I now even dance when I push the button "Its time for music!" Though I haven't learned my ABCs yet (another button). I also love it when daddy pushes me around really fast. I'm thankful for G'a ma... And for Daddy...



And Mommy...



And all of my stuffed animals. :-)



Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

What a special first Thanksgiving! I know each one from this day forward will be even better as you master the art of eating turkey. By the way, everyone "pulls the necks of kittens" (and puppies too) when they are young. Practice. Maybe someone will get you your own puppy in the future.

I'm so glad you're wearing your shoes outside and your hood now. I understand mittens are really hard to get on, so we'll leave that for later, huh! Sorry to be the mean G'a ma and force those shoes on you. I'm glad I'm back in Cali - it's C O L D there!

Your pictures give my mommy hope that there is a light at the end of the eating/pooping/screaming/(sporadic) sleeping tunnel. My first Thanksgiving wasn't nearly as exciting!
