Thanksgiving morning started at a bright and early 6:30 (guess who chose that time).
We spent the morning up until 10:00 playing and watching A Garfield Thanksgiving.
I put Noah down for a nap at 10:00 because I wasn't sure how the day would go. He ended up sleeping until 12:00.

Me and my handsome boy. I meant to have someone take a family picture of us but I forgot.

Here is the shirt I made for Noah based off of a pinterest post. Thanks again Amy for mailing it (yes I made it at her house on Saturday and then left without it.) Here's the front.

and here's the back.
For lunch Noah started out only wanting to eat strawberries (he's a bit obsessed with them) but they eventually ran out and luckily he ate some homeade macaroni and cheese that Jason's mom had made. It really was delicious. Everyone else stuffed themselves with the usual Thanksgiving foods. YUM!
Then the game nazi (Jason) started up the family games.

Here is Noah eating a frozen banana pop that Serena made covered in chocolate.

He really liked them and was covered in chocolate.

Dinner time. He ate macaroni again. :)
We made it back home at around 8:00, gave Noah a quick bath, and put him in Christmas jammies he inherited from someone to celebrate the official start of the Christmas season!
I just want to say how thankful I am for all of my family on both sides. I really love them all and feel so blessed to have such good relationships with everyone.

This morning Noah decided to "snuggle" with Tessa. He LOVES her.

With it being officially the Christmas season I really want to start putting up Christmas decorations but I have to write a talk for church on Sunday and so that will just have to wait. I've been putting it off and now since we have "Thanksmas" tomorrow with Jason's Aunt and her family I really only have today to work on it. Am I starting to feel anxiety about it....yep. :)
I started to brainstorm on paper ideas for my talk but it got confiscated by someone.

Maybe he'll come up with something good. :)

During breakfast I decided to go ahead and show Noah Christmas Eve on Sesame Street.

Then I decided to head to Walmart to buy the game for the game gift exchange for tomorrow. Unfortunatly, I forgot to get a few things so I have to go back later. I don't want to. :)

Getting pictures of my boy has become super hard.
So my talk.....yes I have some ideas. No, it's nowhere near being done. Am I still procrastinating? Yep. Why? I don't know.
But, that does mean I posted about Thanksgiving and made your day right? My job here is finished!

Looks like you had a good Thanksgiving! Noah is getting so big and such a cutie! Jesse and I had to speak on Sunday as well. Hope your talk went well. :)
