Thanksgiving 2011

We stayed in Chicago again this year for Thanksgiving. Traveling to Georgia for both Thanksgiving and Christmas is just too hard with a toddler! This year we had Matt's mom and sister Jessica up for the week to celebrate with us! It was so nice to have them here - they kept me company while Matt was at work, watched Will while I ran errands and went to the doctor, and even went to the grocery store and made dinner for us! And they cooked the majority of the most delicious Thanksgiving dinner ever!

Will liked to help with the cooking! He loves to be a helper!

Will and Grandmama went to the park Thanksgiving morning, despite the very cold weather! Will had a ball!
Will liked to taste what we were cooking!

He gave Grandmama a taste too!
Will is good about giving kisses!
Our turkey!
Reading with Grandmama!

This year we had turkey, sage stuffing, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes and gravy, butternut squash and apple casserole, brussels sprouts, strawberry pretzel salad, and cranberry orange salad. And for dessert we had pumpkin cheesecake pie and coconut cream pie! It was a feast!

Will liked his turkey leg!
After dinner we watched Horton Hears a Who on tv, one of Will's favorite Dr. Suess books! He loved it!

It was such a fun Thanksgiving, and it was so much fun to have Jessica and Mrs. Dart here - Will cried when they left! He wanted to go on the airplane too:)
