Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving from the Ippolito family!

Today we were happy to celebrate, but we were sad that Jammy wasn't able to join us.

Libi was so happy to find that Nana had set up a new tree just for her!

There were presents and lots of bows-- but more on those later.

When we arrived and found Granpa there Libs was so excited! She had to show him (and Nana and Pop) her new boo-boos. She fell at school yesterday and skinned both knees.

Libi also took her head-dress to share with the family.

It wouldn't be a visit without a trike ride around the house pushed by Pop.

Libi took her new car set (which was a potty bribe) to show Nana. Nana showed Libi how to race them on the kitchen floor-- sometimes she's a bad influence :)

We cheated a little bit for dinner... Boston Market made most of our food and we simply re-heated it. We did have a few home-made things: Nana did deviled eggs and stuffing and I made cranberry sauce and a chocolate chip pie.

Libi was a huge fan of everything on her plate!

While Pop and I were cleaning the kitchen a little girl was playing in the TV room all alone. She came to say hello to me and I saw this sight! I was mortified because I wasn't sure where the bows came from. I made her show Nana and she just laughed and said it was fine-- the things you get to do at your great-grandparents house!

In honor of her potty achievements, Jammy sent new day of the week panties.

Libi was thrilled that they each had a different animal on them.

For dessert Libi re-set the table with a little help from Pop.

Dessert was enjoyed by all!

Since Jammy was working today we got to do a little conference call with her. We put her on speaker phone so we could all chat. It was nice to hear about her day, but we missed having her at the table with us.

Daddy created another monster by showing Libi how to take pictures on his iPhone. Libi took about a dozen pictures of all of us-- mostly from the nose down or very blurred. We can't wait to see what she does with her Christmas present.

Granpa was such fun to play with tonight! We are so happy he came down-- even if it was only a 24 hour visit.
