Gobble, Gobble

We have been very busy over the past couple of days. On Thanksgiving we ate at my Nanny's house and my MaMaw's house. We were stuffed. For my Nanny's house I had the honor, or punishment depending on how you look at it, to cook the turkey. I think it turned out well. Last night Dusty and I took her son and my two to go see the Grand Illumination on the river. They had a mini craft fair and food while you waited for the parade to start. I took my camera but didn't get any pictures. I was using the night vision and the boys were too fast for it. While waiting for the boat parade the boys had a blast rolling down the grassy hill and wrestling. They enjoyed all of the boats that were decorated with lights too. Unfortunately, we didn't make it for the fireworks. The kids were not patient enough to wait another 30 minutes or longer for them to start. We still had fun without them, though. Today we are eating at Mark's mom's house. More Turkey here we come. I figure after today this will be my 5th Thanksgiving meal. I ate with Grayson at his Thanksgiving luncheon, my school had Thanksgiving lunch, and all of the above mentioned meals. Hmmm, I think I might turn into a turkey.

The Stallings' Cousins

It has been two years since Paula, Mark's mom, has been able to get all of the "grandkids" together for a picture. Reagan wasn't even born was just the boys. Here are a couple of good ones. She had way too many to choose from, I'm glad it wasn't me! :-) Anyway, you probably can figure our who's the boss in the family by the last pic.

I forgot to crop this one before posting. oops!

A Preschool Thanksgiving

On Tuesday Grayson's daycare had Thanksgiving lunch for the 3 year old class. Mark and I were able to go eat a yummy lunch with Grayson. The best part was the "program" at the beginning. His class sang 4 songs and then said the blessing, which I think was the cutest part. Here are a few pictures and 1 video.

Grayson's Class of Indians

My little Indian in the center.

Grayson and his best friend Noah. They can not stand it if the other one is absent. Their teacher's have even commented on them being best friends.

Little Apple Tree

Grayson loved learning this.

For some reason he can't say the words and do the actions at the same time.

Mark and Grayson finally got around to taking down our ghosts. Reagan and I were inside staying warm and I just so happened to look outside. The pics are blurry because I took them from our front window, through the glass and screen. Anyway, it looks like Grayson was a big help.

Reagan is a total drama queen. She can turn on and off the tears in an instant. She is also turning into a BIG Daddy's girl. These pics are of here while the boys were outside taking down the ghost. She just wanted her Daddy and kept crying for him the whole time. As soon as he came back in the house she was happy. Oh, what to do.

Anyone need a manicure or a pedicure?

If you are in need of a manicure or pedicure be sure to let us know. We now have a "professional" in our house....Grayson. This morning as we were running LATE to an appointment with a speech-language pathologists I found Grayson giving himself a new look. He had painted his hands, feet, my alarm clock, the remote, and even got it on the sheets of my bed. Of course, I found out quickly that I was out of polish remover so he got to go out in public with it everywhere. I will post a few pics in a little bit of his new look.
