Thanksgiving this year was a pretty amazing day. It was tough to wake up at Granny Pat's house on Thanksgiving morning without her being there, but it was such a nice feeling to be there, reminded of how special she always made everyone feel on Thanksgiving (and every other day of the year). 

We woke up and had cinnamon rolls and watched the Thanksgiving Day parade. Pax loved the balloons. 
We had lots of time to get ready this year since we only had 2 Thanksgivings to make it to instead of 3. The boys looked adorable in their matching turkey shirts my mom and I made. 
We went to Aunt Jojo's house first where Porter got some baby love from Regan. 
It turned out to be a little too much baby love and he needed Granny V to comfort him.

Pax also got some baby love from Regan:
But he definitely liked it. 
They were fast friends and had a great time chasing each other around and tackling each other. 
I love these two:
Paxton always requests outside time as soon as we're done eating. It was a beautiful day so we agreed.

He loved jumping down the steps. I held my breath nervously each time but somehow we avoided a trip to the emergency room. 
We even squeezed in a family picture. 
After that we headed to Gramsy's house for our second meal. 

Pax got to sit in the youth chair...
...since someone took over his high chair this year. 
Porter loved his first Thanksgiving and had almost an entire roll and some mashed potatoes. Pax ate a roll and 3 pink arctic freezes!

The whole family:
After dinner, Gramsy started a new tradition with the boys. She let them open their first Christmas present which was matching reindeer jammies and the How the Grinch Stole Christmas movie!
Jared stayed with Paxton while we all went Black Friday shopping. We were joking that Porter got to hit the Black Friday sales while Paxton never has when Jared texted and said he found a deal he couldn't pass up and was taking Pax to the store. 

We met up and headed home with the boys in their Christmas jammies asleep in the backseat, Christmas music playing, full of good food. It was a perfect Thanksgiving. We are so thankful for our great marriage, our two sweet and healthy boys, our amazing families, and having everything we need.
