I won’t lie, I woke up this morning with a smile on my face, I danced into Doiron’s room and gobbled at him. I wait ALL year for the Holiday season, people look at me like I’m crazy, they tell me I’ll come to dread it being in retail; but they don’t know me. I will always be a cheerful elf singing christmas carols and baking cookies. I am determined to raise Doiron in this spirit, we danced out to the living room, lit a fire in the fireplace and tuned into the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Today I am thankful for my family, and for my Mom and Dad who gave me an amazing childhood and always made the holidays special. Thanksgiving has always been about the HUGE gathering that is my dads side of the family, 6 sets of aunts and uncles and their kids forming the 13 member Meyer clan of cousins. We put on plays and went exploring, got into trouble and made everyone laugh. It’s been a while since the mass gathering has occurred, but today all of Doiron’s cousins will be at the house for a feast and I can’t wait.
In other news Austin just hosted its very first F1 race accompanied by Fan Fest. Unfortunately all of Austin was too scared to come out and play, but it really was an amazing event and I look forward to the next ten years!
And in Doiron world….he’s such a big boy now! He’s walking more and more, I believe 21 steps is his record, he wants to climb on everything, can get on the couch by himself along with many other more dangerous feats. And in only 20 days he will be ONE YEAR OLD!
Enjoy these pictures from our last few weeks of fun! Gobble gobble!!!
