The Day after Thanksgiving

Look, it's snowing! Okay, I realize you can't see it, but it was seriously snowing the day after Thanksgiving in Ohio. It was Aaron's first snowfall and I was so, so, so excited! So I took this picture to always remember the first time I showed my son snow. Of course, it would be hard to remember it from this picture, but don't focus on that, I know what it is.

The day after Thanksgiving we went to my Mom's and celebrated with Grandma Beth and Grandpa Mike. I didn't actually take any pictures of Grandma Beth or Grandpa Mike, but these pictures were all taken at their house. Since neither of them could hold Aaron, I just took pictures of Aaron playing with all the toys they had for him.

Aaron loved his toys. He even let Grandpa Mike play with him. But not that Evil Grandma Beth. Seriously, y'all, I wish you could have seen our son. He had these very cool toys that he loved. One had blocks and one had stars. He was trying to put the blocks in the star toy and it wasn't working, so Grandma Beth (who is a teacher) tried to show him what to do. Oh my goodness! He pushed both of the toys under the table and then sat in front of them so she couldn't get to them! It was a trip! We are blessed that Grandma thought it was funny!

This is a picture at the dinner table. Grandma made all of Mama's favorites and it was so yummy! If we hadn't been leaving the next day, I would have taken them with me! So, so good! And we really had a very good time. Aaron was just so sweet (as long as no one tried to hold him) and it was very enjoyable. It was fun to watch him playing with his grandpa. And it was really neat to see him so into his new toys. He was very comfortable. We spent the day at Mom's and then in the evening I went to meet my friend Jenn who I don't see nearly enough. Aaron stayed at Dad's with Grandma Sheri, Grandpa Tom and Daddy. It sounds like he was very entertaining as he enjoyed his new Barn Toy. Speaking of that, Grandma and Grandpa had to ship Aaron's presents to us and they came today! I am very excited to pull out that Barn! I'll take lots of pictures of him enjoying it.

You'd think I'd know that YOUR SON would want to do it HIS WAY even if it's not exactly working like it was meant to work!!! All that mattered to him was that he was enjoying it his way. It was actually one of the highlights of the day, seeing that independent spirit in my grandson as he took his toys a safe distance from me!It was funny and I still laugh every time I think of it!
