Mom always made it fun when dad went away, and preparing for Thanksgiving made it just that more fun. When I was in school, we only got Thanksgiving and the Friday after off. But mom let us take the Wednesday before off to help her prepare for the big day. (Although, looking back, I really wonder if we "helped" her!) We cooked and cleaned and just had a great time together. I really don't remember anything we cooked (we did cook didn't we mom??), and of course I don't remember cleaning (I'm sure I wasn't a great help there!), but I do remember the fun we had just spending the day together.
One of the greatest memories from my childhood. Thanks mom.

"Wow." she said. "We have alot of children with that name." (we have an unusually odd last name.)
"Yes" I said. "6. And they're all mine!"
"Oh my!" she replied!
I laughed all the way home!
As you can see, he still loves his bath, still loves to be outdoors and still enjoys his bottle.He got his very first Christmas present when Grandma and Grandpa were here. It was a light up, musical drum. He was fascinated by it, but then again, he was fascinated by the box also.He has decided that he really doesn't like baby food anymore, so he's starting to eat table food with the rest of us.
Benjamin is a wonderful addition to our family- I can't imagine life without him!
