the rest of Thanksgiving, with pics
We had a full house for Thanksgiving at my parents'. The above pic is what the living room looked like with six blow-up beds, one of which was a double. And yes, there are people sleeping in them right now. I'm so mean like that.
I grew up next door to my grandparents, so I am super close to them. I'm so excited that they get to know Grayson, and I love when G hangs with his great-grandparents. Aren't they so cute?
It took forever to get this pic of my parents because my dad kept making "funny" faces. (Yes, those quotes are so intentional.)
G was his grumpiest on Thanksgiving, but he had his moments of happy.
He adored my cousin Binky. She could make him smile all day. Loretta, Alex's wife, was the same way. And Binky has seriously pretty hair.
He rather liked Alex as well!
My mom took over a lot of baby duty... not that she minded. I think she hated sharing him with other people - haha. My grandmother and her fought over who got to hold G during Thanksgiving dinner. She's coming to stay part of the weekend with us while the hubs and I go see a Titans game. I'm way excited about the game, even though the Titans suck.
Alex and his wife Loretta are way cute.
Of course, there were group pics. I've already posted the one of the entire group. Here are all of the ladies.
And then all of the cousins. We accidentally lined up according to siblings. So the two brothers on the left are twins, the two in the middle are sisters, that's me in the orange (yeah, I'm short; what of it?), and my brother is on the right.
I was sad to leave, but it was time to hit the road and get G back to normalcy. He was super loud when we got back, probably because he had to screech loudly to be heard about the crowds. haha. His sleep has also been all messed up. Last night he woke up every two hours. Not cool, little dude, not cool. I hope tonight we are more fortunate.
Can't wait to see all of the family again. I'll see my mom's side on Christmas. But then I get to see all the rest of these peeps on Binky's wedding next October. Can't wait.
