Well, our third Thanksgiving celebration of the week is over and I’m exhausted. We gathered with the Schofields at Grandma Barb & Grandpa Bruce’s house. As per usual, I stole the show. The most exciting part was getting to meet Nana, Grampy, and Uncle Brad. I also really enjoyed seeing Uncle Andy and Aunt Kim again.

We bundled up yesterday and made my first trip to Grandma Nan and Grandpa Rick’s house in Peoria. We ate Thanksgiving dinner today and I got to meet my great grandma Emma. A good time was had by all.

Well our first of three Thanksgivings is over. This one was with Grandma Barb’s side of the family in Indianapolis. It was my first trip across state lines. Man, it was a blast. I’ve never had so many people fighting to get ahold of me before. I felt like a rock star.

Then, after it was over we visited my new friends Claire & Elliott and I got even more attention.

Mom, Dad, from now on I’m going to expect this much attention every day. Okay?

This morning Momma ran her first race since I was born.

Melissa's first race since Will was born

She even waved and blew kisses to me as she ran by!

After the race my grandparents and great grandparents came by to join us for lunch.

When lunch was over Daddy and I walked to campus to watch my second cousin Tom play in a racquetball tournament (along with the rest of the family).

When we returned home I was so beat I just wanted to lay down and take a nap.

I was such a good boy all day Mom and Dad just couldn’t believe it. Well, I’m off to bed early. Hopefully I’ll get a good night’s rest so I can be really good tomorrow as well.

I’ve been working really hard at finding thumbkin. The problem is, my dang arms keep flailing around, so if I find thumbkin, it almost always gets away again.

Here’s a video Mama took of me last week:

And then last night when Mama was putting me in my jammies, I got thumbkin real good for just a minute.

It was a big day for me yesterday. I went to campus with Mama to listen to a talk. Unfortunately, I cried and Mama didn’t know what else to do to keep me quiet, so she fed me, and then I burped real loud. Everybody looked at me.

Last night we all went to a Halloween party at Professor Pablo’s house. I guess I must have wanted a “store-bought” costume, because I wasn’t too happy that Mama made me wear this outfit she came up with and go as a Jedi Knight. Mama and Daddy went as Jedi Knights too. Daddy was really excited about the light sabers.

Professor Pablo gave me some little outfits with monkeys on them. That was really nice of him. Everybody at the party made such a fuss over me that it just wore me out. I guess it was a pretty good time, but maybe I’ll enjoy Halloween more when I am old enough to eat candy.
