Thanksgiving

Sorry MOM! I know I'm a slacker. Okay, Jaci is getting so big...I know I say that every time, but it's true. She does so many things and says so many new phrases. There are cute ones like "I love you sugar mommy" and "don't worry mommy, I'm okay" and the not so cute ones like "No, don't touch me, stay there" and "MINE!" And, she has started saying our evening prayer...she's still very stuck on Halloween and her prayer sounds something like this, "Dear Heavenly Father, thankful for this day, thankful we can go to bed, thankful Jaci was a witch, and Grammy was a witch, and Daddy was a cowboy, and Mommy was a cowboy, name of Jesus Christ, Amen." She has said that same prayer since Halloween...I guess we need some other fun memorable things to happen!

I don't have much to say about these first two pictures. I think Jaci was singing in the above picture and the one below I thought was just super cute of her profile. She was very intent on coloring a picture of Mickey Mouse.

Anyway, for Thanksgiving, Bill's parents came into town and we have had a great time together so far! We've had dominoes and Wii bowling tournaments and have just had a lot of fun... even if Bill has had to study the whole time. It's mostly been me and Jaci and the in-laws. Luckly, I was very blessed with in-laws and we get along really well.

For Thanksgiving day we went down to the New Orleans area to spend the day with my mother-in-law's family. We had great food and a lot of fun. One of Melanie's nephews has a son a little older than Jaci, and the two of them hit it off. They drove around in Logan's power wheels car...well, Jaci drove Logan around, and around and around...moslty in circles, but they had a lot of fun. I also caught them sneaking off upstairs and holding hands! They also hid under the table telling everyone it was their clubhouse.

Aren't they cute!

Below is a video of Jaci and her Grammy (Bill's mom) playing with a singing Christmas puppy that she brought...and is taking home with her for Jaci to enjoy when we come to visit! She was so silly with it.
