I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving.

We visited Steven and my Family's place as we have for the past few years. While I was packing for the trip, Steven and Vin were in the atrium. All of a sudden I heard him shout... Oh My God! What's in your hand!

And there was our excited little boy proudly showing his daddy what he had found hidden in the fall leaves.

A dead baby bird.


A vigorous hand washing ensued.

After that, we headed over to Steven's family's place where their dog Bagel and Shelby played and chased  for hours. On the car ride to my parent's place, Shelby was exhausted.

oh so tired

But Shelby's never one to be a wall flower when there's people and food about, she made her rounds and chased kids despite her exhausting morning.

As for dinner, I didn't get any photos because Vin was being picky. My mom made the traditional green bean casserole with fried french onions on top, and Vin didn't like stuff on his green beans. I had to wash all the good stuff off the beans so he would eat them.

Shelby identified Vin as the person most likely to drop stuff, and sat under him the whole time.

After dinner was done, she hopped up on my mom's lap and allowed people to worship her.

Bless you pug

And so this Thanksgiving, I am thankful for:

1. my wonderful family

2. That Vin likes green beans

3. That Vin did NOT eat the baby bird

4. That Shelby is so good with Vin

Hope you had a happy thanksgiving too!

But Mom...what's the difference between the dead bird in the leaves and the dead bird in the oven??

You must be doing something right with your veggies. Most kids would eat the good stuff off the top and leave the beans.

Happy Holidays!

Adorable Shelby's face pressed and squished
as she tries to get some shut eye before the next stop. Shelby does look beat. Glad you had such a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Shelby does look rather regal sitting on
grandma's lap!
