Giving thanks we're there and back

For Thanksgiving this year we followed the standard plan and headed up to Aunt Debbie’s house. We got off to a late start because we’re just slow people and because Mom took Corwin out for a Thanksgiving Day Mile Run. Mom left him in the dust but was almost run in to the ground by Keith who was also there. That wouldn’t have been a problem except Corwin took his usual 90+ minutes to go upstairs and shower.

Both of the formerly cute and little cousins (Tara and Dana) were there, along with Grandma. Tara brought her husband Josh and baby Brady so that for the first time in a long time diapers had to be changed but they didn’t belong to one of our children. The passing of an era…

We had a nice dinner, although the kids didn’t eat much having snacked on various relish trays pretty much from the time we arrived until dinner. Corwin had also discovered a tray of M&Ms which he consumed at a rapid pace despite multiple parental admonishments. Still, after a relaxing evening, the kids didn’t complain of hunger before bed. So it was a good day.
