Belated Thanksgiving Post

Well, finally here are some pics from our Thanksgiving travels. As usual, we split our San Antonio time between the Markham and Skloss families. We weren't there long but we got to spend a little time with everyone and Clay got to experience his first Thanksgiving (which he spent as the centerpiece in his bumbo seat at the Markham meal!)
My niece, Casey, came to visit for a couple of days before Thanksgiving and she was such a help. It's been so much fun to watch her grow and see what a neat girl she's become.

One thing that Casey was grateful for this Thanksgiving- now there's a new little girl for Aunt Brittany to put hairbows on so Casey doesn't have to wear them anymore!

One of my greatest joys has been spending time with my niece and nephew. Now, as a mother, it's watching my niece(s!) and nephew play with my son. Since Brittan and Clay are just five months apart, I look forward to many playdates with the two of them. Already, Clay thinks Brittan is so interesting. Every time he gets near her, he wants to eat her hands! So cute!

"Now, let me help you get her settled, Aunt Mandy..."

"How'd you get so little?"

Our first night in SA was with Mike's mom and dad. Clay loves his Nana and Papa and they were more than ready for him. Mike's mom had everything for Clay from a new bed with a new quilt and super soft blanket, a new mobile for his bed, baby Tylenol, pacifiers, and fun new toys! It's was a mom's dream to walk into a room with everything your child needs and I didn't even have to pack it or buy it! She even had treats and a new bed for Lindsay the dog! It was so nice to have everything ready and waiting for us so all we had to do was unpack and go to bed. Thanks Nana!

Nana & Papa couldn't wait to feed Clay

Aunt Jamie bought Clay some cool cowboy boots he wanted to show off

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I think Mike and I realized how many things we have to be thankful for. We were especially grateful for loving families and being able to share a special time as Clay's first Thanksgiving.

And finally, for the thing Clay was most grateful for this Thanksgiving:

His feast!
