Thanksgiving and stuff

We had a great Thanksgiving at my parents house in NC. It was a very quick trip, but we packed in lots of stuff in that short time. Mom and I were crafty, Dad and I ran the Turkey Trot 5K (I'm so proud of myself - I ran the entire way), I ate my weight in turkey and stuffing, Nate had mashed potatoes and a bit of gravy, the guys played golf, and the girls went shopping. Here's the proof:

Mom and I made decorative burp cloths and ribbon key chains. Fun! So much so that Mom bought me a sewing machine and sent it home with me. Thank you!

Nate propped up on Daddy who is in a post dinner triptophan coma.

Mike and Dad golfed while Mom, Nate, and I went shopping.

Again... straws = tons o' fun

Mom found a great consignment store in New Bern. Nate loved this chair so much, that it's now his spot at Nana and Poppops house. It's great for relaxing after shopping on Black Friday.

By the time we got home on Friday night, Nate had a low grade fever. After an up and down weekend and a fever of 102.3 last night (and him waking every 30 mins through the night), I took him to the doctor this morning. Lo and behold, he has an ear infection. Poor baby. Hopefully tonight will be better.

Oh poor buddy! I hope he's feeling better.

BTW, LOVE the chair.
