An Ode to Thanksgiving (Okay, so not really)

Sorry to leave you all in the dark about Josh and his first Thanksgiving. What can I say? What sort of excuse could I come up with?

Ah, Thanksgiving... The time of year when Aunts and Uncles, cousins and Grandparents flock together for good fellowship and tasty food. This year Mom and Dad had a full house- 22 people all together. It could've been 23 if Jim hadn't up and moved to Minnesota, but we'll have to excuse him. He'll be here for Christmas (keep your fingers crossed!). Naturally Josh was the star of the show. Upon arrival, the girl cousins flocked around him and cooed over him like he was a little doll. He was passed from person to person, but he was unaware of the extra attention as he slept almost the whole time. Once again, my Mom had not a fighting chance of holding him for any amount of time greater than five minutes. She's much too easy to steal a baby from and when there are so many eager arms, she just can't seem to keep him very long. Don't worry Grandma, Josh is coming over again today and then you can hold him for as long as you want. Thanksgiving is one of the best times of year... All that family and all that food. A warm house and a cozy couch. The ladies gather around a puzzle, the men around the football game and the kids around the Apples to Apples card game.

Ahem... Now comes time for my excuses. Josh needs my attention and now you see why I haven't been very good at keeping up with my blog. Till later...
