That I LOVE this time of year. Not even a sweet boys fever and stomach bug can dampen my Christmas cheer. He did break his momma's heart a bit though.
I am the momma that puts the Christmas tree up the first weekend in November; although I have an equal appreciation for Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving deserves its own special spotlight.
Crewe and I started off our Thanksgiving with him falling asleep in the car right as we were arriving, so momma sat in the car with him for an hour, reading a 1990 Victorian magazine, because there was nothing else to do.
There is something about having a baby that just makes you appreciate holidays, life, health, everyday events a little more. Even if it is sitting in the car for an hour waiting for him to wake up. I mean who wouldn't want to stare at that face.
Little man was a trooper through it all. He played, took pictures with cousins, conked out for a 2 hour nap, snuggled up close a lot (which I NEVER mind) and decided that Grandma might even be a close 2nd to mommy (which Grandma NEVER minds).
|I wanted a family picture and this is all I got. I'll take it.|
There is something about being in the middle of nowhere that just calms the spirit and makes you feel closer to God. Having family gathered close around drinking coffee and eating pie. The men watching football and shooting rifles out in the fields. Babies exploring their environment and being hugged and kissed on by everyone. Those are are all the things I am thankful for.
Crewe spent the remainder fo the holiday test driving some future professions he might be interested in. Night 1 consisted of a tow truck driver that bakes on the side and Night 2 was just a fire fighter.
We headed home today, Crewe and I took a 2 hour nap on the floor, followed by breakfast for dinner, a fire and Elf.
|Like I said, sweet boy was a little under the weather.|
I hope everyone had a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving!
