Here are some photos on how our little family spent our Thanksgiving holiday... James had an incredible first Thanksgiving!
On our way to the Turkey Trot 8K! (James rode in the jogging stroller with Jimmy)
James all snuggled up, ready to go!
Mary Sims, Thomas, Stephanie and Travis were all there -- Jimmy snuck a pic of MS racing cross the finish line!
I'm almost there... Yes I am sporting a 2002 Tridelta shirt for my race... Time to invest in some running clothes? Perhaps.... :)
Our little family after the race... Nice start to a family tradition!
When we got home we put James down for a nap and chillaxed with Sadie and watched the parade.
.. and toasted to all that we are thankful for! :)
Then we got all cleaned up and headed to Nana & Pop's for a big Thanksgiving family gathering! Here's Gigi and James...
Ma & Gigi with our little buggaboo :)

It's hard catching a photo of the nieces and nephews... they are on the GO! Here's Hamilton racing around....
Joy & James and a little vino... a nice combo! :)
The hostess with the mostess! Mom always does a fantastic job with these huge family gatherings!
Look at all that food - yum! (Adeline's face is also cracking me up... can u see her??)

Everyone making their plates!
Nana & James
Too bad I'm awesome and got the available space located next to my parents at the loft rented out - so this was our last Thanksgiving where we could all eat and be together in one room. In January this is going to be a new cafe in Simpsonville!
James and his other Great-Grandmama :)
The day after Thanksgiving we were excited to spend some extra quality time with our nephews, Hamilton and Zan. It was super special because since they live in Columbia we don't get to see them as much as we like. James loved it too!
I loved snuggling with them watching "a show" :)
... and Uncle Jimbo enjoyed reading some books....
Then after Thanksgiving fun, we celebrated James' baptism... So all in all we had an amazing, wonderful kick-off to the holiday season! Now we are all geared up and ready for Christmas.
