Black Friday

The day after Thanksgiving, we went to visit Papa Norm and Grandma Jane. Gram made another Thanksgiving dinner just for us! Thanks Gram! It was delicious! 

Pippa thought the dinner was delicious too. Here she is licking gravy off Nathan's shirt. Can you see her blurry pink tongue? 


She was sad there was no gravy on Elizabeth. Elizabeth didn't eat gravy. 

We watched the very sad Apple Cup and it was horrible! 


This year, we decided to do a turkey trot around the driveway. Nathan and Elizabeth made turkey hats for everyone. Everyone got a hat with different colored turkey feathers. 


Here is everyone but Gram and Pippa before the race started. Pippa was running around warming up. Gram was rounding up coats. 



Nathan and Pippa did some warming up too. Pippa would not keep her turkey feather collar on. 


And they're off! As you can see, Nathan is in the lead. Papa is a close second. Pippa is running third.   Jeremy, Elizabeth and Laura make up the middle of the pack. Gram was at the back and I was just taking pictures so I think I was disqualified. 


They rounded the corner and Nathan was still in the lead. 


The finish line (the light pole). You can see Nathan about to cross. Jeremy is running second and Papa is coming in third. 

Poor Pippa. She did pass Nathan for the lead at one point but then got distracted by a bunny and ran off course and got disqualified. She sprinted back in to beat Papa to get third place but Gram ruled her disqualified. So Papa got third, Elizabeth got 4th, Laura got 5th and Gram got 6th. I didn't even finish as I took pictures at the finish line. Better luck next year Pippa! 


Trying to take some family pictures. Looking into the sun was a bit much. 


The shade was a bit dark. Oh well. 


Elizabeth would throw up snow to create her own "Olaf snow cloud."  You can actually see it pretty well in the picture!

Funny conversations heard around the house: Elizabeth: "What's the definition of the word Mother?" Nathan: "She's...
