Thanksgiving Entry, Finally!

Time to play catchup! Mommy just about decided to not update my journal anymore because it is so time-consuming and she worries about getting behind. However, she changed her mind, at least for now.

Thanksgiving was so much fun! I celebrated with lots of family in Gainesville, TX. I met numerous cousins for the first time, stayed in a hotel room for three whole nights, got to go swimming and more!

When we first arrived, we had our Thanksgiving dinner at a restaurant my Great Great Uncle Jim (Unk) picked out for us. Uncle Chuck, Great Grandma Bwana, Unk, Grandma Cheryl, Mommy, Daddy, Logan, my third cousin Terrie and her fiance, Andrew as well as my Great Great Aunt Sandra were there. We had a great time.

Me instructing the wait staff that I would prefer the ribeye over turkey and dressing and would appreciate prompt service because I'm not exactly patient when I get my heart set on a ribeye.

Unk wondering how on Earth he's going to have enough money to pay for my ribeye and contemplating ways to never invite me out to eat again.

After dinner, we checked into the hotel and then headed out to Unk's. Mommy missed THE BEST photo ever. You see, my Unk lives in the coolest home on the shore of a very pretty lake. When we arrived, we immediately walked down to the beach and the water was so still that it looked like a mirror reflecting the trees on the opposite shoreline and the sunset behind. It was breathtaking. I believe sissy got a picture on her cell phone of this awesome site. Maybe I can get it from her and post it at some point.

The next day, my third cousin Michael arrived with his beautiful wife Bekkah who is pregnant with TRIPLETS!!!! They have a son who's just a little older than me named Ethan. I met all of them for the first time and shared my toys with Ethan. He was a very sweet, laid back boy and I so wish I could spend more time with him.

The next day, Uncle Jim Benton and his family arrived! Mommy, Daddy and Emily and I all went swimming at our hotel. I had so much fun!

Yay! Swim!

Me with Emily in a rare photo op during the OU football game. People basically started ignoring me around that time.

Luke was watching the game behind me so I decided to find something else to do.

I stuck out my tongue for entertainment.

Ahem, Emily? It's me, Josh. Oh yeah, you're watching that OU game. Let me know when you're free.

Although I was not the center of attention for a few minutes of my life, I was still a happy baby!
