Zoe's First Thanksgiving - 11/27/08
It's official - Zoe's first Thanksgiving! We had a couple places to go - stop by the Hendrickson's so we can see the cousins, aunt, uncle and grandparents for a bit and then off to my cousin's house in West St Paul.
Zoe was able to nap and then we headed to the inlaws about 4pm. Zoe was quite happy to see her cousins and auntie Mary! We hung out and laughed for awhile and then headed to the cousins for some FOOD!
We got to my cousin Andrea's about 5pm and the whole family was already there. My grandma Bayer, all my aunts and uncles and cousins, my brother and Tanya, and my dad!
Zoe made herself right at home and found a spot at the little kids picnic table in the middle of the living room. It was so cute - she climbed on but kept slipping down! Too funny!
Dinner was so good - Zoe ate turkey, she tried real sweet potatoes - instead of the pureed version and she even got a little pumpkin mousse for dessert! Andrea and Cory did a great job with their first Thanksgiving at their house! Well done!
After dinner Zoe spent some time down in Elise's play room - can't wait until we can get something like that set up in our basement for Zoe. It will be so nice to be able to have a place of her own to play and not have to worry about her getting in to other stuff! She also found the cool Leap Frog magnet toy on the fridge - we will have to pick one of those up for her birthday or Christmas - she really enjoyed it!
When it was time to go she got some face time in with gpa Jim. She had a long day and didn't really make a peep the whole time until it was time to go - and it was very close to her bed time so you could even cut her some slack - we got lucky with this little one - she is so good when we are out and about! She is getting louder - but good!
It was a great day - a great first Thanksgiving and it makes me so excited for her upcoming birthday and the holiday season! She will be so much more entertaining this year!
