The For-Real Thanksgiving

Greg, Kate and Colin arrived just before noon today and made our Thanksgiving holiday a true celebration. Thanksgiving at my parents' house has finally arrived.

I'm not really sure if there is a cuter munchkin pair than Colin and Elaina. Especially at the age they are now, they are near celebrity status in one another's eyes. From the moment Colin stepped in the door, he hung his arms around Elaina in a friendly hug and said, "Laina! I'm so glad to see you! You're a girl!" (Just in case something had changed since the last time he had seen her.) So funny and so entertaining.
Aside from my sweet cheeked baby boy feeling miserable, rotten and crummy with a horrible, heart-wrenching cough, Colin and Elaina had a great time running loose throughout the house and enjoying being together. Despite the fact that neither kid had an afternoon nap, Kate and I were wagering whose munchkin was going to crack first. We hit a snag early on with them remembering to share and decided to take a little rest in front of the TV. Other than that, both kids made it through thee day with hardly an incident.
They staged this video break all by themselves.
So, how about less talk and more pictures? They pretty much sum up the excitement of our day and everything we are thankful for.

The following clip will demonstrate exactly why 2 year-olds are not allowed to decorate Christmas trees by themselves.
How is this for cute?
Or, wait, is this one cuter?

Hope everyone had a wonderfully, delicious holiday!

How much fun is that??? I wish I'd though to tape Harper with my cousins. . . But soon enough we'll have two kiddos to play together. Looks like you all had a great time!
