First Thanksgiving

We have so much to be thankful for this year.  I feel this way every year when Thanksgiving gets close but after all that has changed during the past year, I feel especially blessed.  It was so fun to celebrate Avery's first Thanksgiving!  She got to play with her cousins and get loved on by extended family and even partook in her first black Friday shopping adventure!

We were able to leave for Temple Wednesday afternoon but unfortunately didn't beat the traffic.   Before we left a small package arrived for little A.  Her Grandma Nelson sent her first Christmas present!! We had to open it right then (with Grandma's permission of course!).  She bought Avery a beautiful "baby's first Christmas" ornament with Avery's name and picture on it! So cute!! Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of the actual gift but here are Avery and Cash inspecting the package.

Thanksgiving Day was beautiful.  The food was great and it was so fun to watch Emily and Avery playing together, Em is so good with her!

All of the cousins, Emily, Avery and Grant.  Not sure why Avery didn't want her picture taken!  Silly girl!

Avery and her Great-Grandmother

Avery and her Great-Granddad

Emily even fed Avery dinner!! So sweet :)  Avery had butternut squash and corn along with a few little bites of mashed potatoes!

First time in the big bathtub!

All ready for bed.

Trying again to get a picture of all three.  Still unsuccessful.  

Friday morning Linda and I got up at 3:30 and joined the other crazy people at Target.  O.M.G.  The line was wrapped all the way around the back of the building when we got there!! I didn't know Target could even hold that many people!! Luckily most of them headed for the electronics section while I was headed for toys!! It was fun, we were able to get some good deals and get back into bed by 5:30!! Not sure if it was fun enough to do it next year though.  We'll see...  After a few hours of rest we headed back out to the mall with Avery.  She did great, this little girl loves to shop!!! 

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
