Happy Thanksgiving

November 28, 2009

It is good to be home after a trip–a good trip north to visit Christer’s aunts.  Our Thanksgiving, as has been the custom over the past several years, included card games with the aunts, catching up on family news, cafeteria turkey dinner, and getting our cable fix late at night in the guest house.  Bringing along a baby meant working around some naps and some crazy wake-up times (6, 5, and 4am on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, respectively), but he also provided the entertainment.  Mealtimes were a blast–here Turtle is putting on a show for the women at the nursing home where one aunt lives.  He would walk up and down the aisles, practicing his baby steps and chatting with the women.  The meals at the convent were similarly well-received.

For Turtle’s part, he enjoyed himself thoroughly in these playgrounds full of walkers (things to push!) wheel chairs (things to push with wheels!) and grandmotherly women who kept giving him candy and applesauce.
