What Came First? Santa or the Bird?

I'm finally getting around to posting about Thanksgiving, so my holiday's got a little flipped in the blogosphere.

My apologies.

We had a great Thanksgiving at my parents. We have done turkey dinner with my mom's family for as long as I can remember. Now it's fun to pass the tradition on to the next generation.

The cousins had a great time together. These two boys just went from one game to the next and one creative activity to the next. "We should all be so lucky as to have children who entertain themselves as well Briggs and Gehrig!" (please read in a very Eastern European Jewish accent).

There were gingerbread houses for the kids to make. Nana always likes to have a craft for the kids. Here's Natalee with her gingerbread Chalet!

Lots of family to love.

Yes. We did hoist our child up on the roof. But how else are you supposed to get the ball down?

There are always family group shots to be taken in front of the orange tree.

And a little goofing around.

We did eventually eat our gingerbread houses...

The next day we went to the Exploratorium in San Fransisco. It was the best place for Ty because he could touch everything and push every button he saw.

...and he did.

I love this one of Briggs. He is concentrating on following his stream of consciousness. Very Zen.

All of that button pushing made the kids a little tired by the time we made it to the Golden Gate Bridge.

The cold wind finally woke up the brothers, though.

I can't forget the special Luigi bed Nana made for Ty. He was very excited.
