It's the Great Turkey, Caleb Jon!

Yesterday was Caleb's first Thanksgiving. I'm not sure he got the whole gist of what was going on but he did really seem to enjoy hanging out with his family. Talk about a smiley boy!

This was Daisy's first Thanksgiving in Cheyenne; I started thinking that Daisy has actually spent each of her three Thanksgivings in different cities. Our little nomad. :)

We all got up around 7:30 (after Daisy slept the whole night in her own bed) and I made scrambled eggs and toast for everyone. Well, Caleb didn't get to partake of the morning "yum yum," but he did have a nice big ba-ba of his own. Afterwards, Daisy and I started making pies for dinner at Nonnie's house. We made pumpkin and pecan pie - we also made sweet potatoes and Great Grandma Eileen's Red and White Salad.

Daisy helped with the dishes (twice!) and then we got our nice digs on and it was "over the river and through the woods" to Connie and Rod's house. Check out these good lookin' kids.

As usual, Thanksgiving at Connie's house was a true treat - Daisy wolfed down almost a whole can of black olives plus she and her Aunt Jenna ate a ton of homemade whipped cream. Afterwards we went out to Great Grandpa Gene and Great Grandma Fran's house to visit. Daisy managed to fall asleep while we were there and Caleb did a bunch of male bonding with Great Uncles Tom, DeLoyd and Jim.

He also visited with Great Aunts Lorraine and Mary.

We finally made it home with a sleepy Dilly and C-bass; both went to bed fairly early. Even this old mama went to bed early. :)

All in all it was a really nice Thanksgiving.

Thank you for checking in with the Janneys - we hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving as well!

Gobble gobble!
