This was Calvin's first major holiday and it was beautiful and exciting!  We filled the day with traditions that we can't wait to teach him about.  We lazed about in our pajamas, reading the fancy ad inserts and watching the Detroit Thanksgiving Day Parade.  At the end of the parade we got dressed in our Thanksgiving best and headed to Cortney's parents' house for a dinner of traditional favorites - turkey smoked on the outdoor smoker, squash, mashed potatoes, cranberry salad, stuffing (with sausage - mmmm!), wine, coffee, pie, and ice cream.  Calvin even had his own seat at the table!  After dinner we watched football and worked on a puzzle.  It felt like a very special day and we are very Thankful for Calvin, for each other, for our family, and our friends.
