The One with the Rest of Thanksgiving Vacation

These are just some pics from the rest of our Thanksgiving holiday.

I loved waking up and seeing Mt. Timpanogas every morning. One of the prettiest mountains in the world, IMHO.

Black Friday shopping.

My cousin and sister-in-law. I just love these girls.

My grandparent's have a sweet view of the Provo temple and surrounding city.

Fox mesmerized by his uncle and aunt.

Getting into mischief.

Are we a Mac family or what? It's hard to tell...

Joey Joey bo boey bo nana fanna fo foey. Me mi mo moey. Joey!

Grandpa Tedder the Gooder and Better and Joey relaxing and reading by the fire.

This single wreath made the entire room smell like Christmas! I love the smell of pine!

The anatomy of a tantrum. We'll talk more about this in his 14 month update in a couple weeks...

We opted to drive home later in the day instead of super early in the morning. We made the mistake of coming home when everyone else and their dogs were going back home too. Took 10.5 hours instead of 9. Which isn't too bad. But every minute counts!
Fox took a nap as soon as we started driving, woke up for a few hours, then fell asleep for the night. The problem though was he kept waking up and tried to roll over onto his stomach the way he sleeps in his crib but that couldn't happen. So. We haven't decided which way is better - early morning or late at night. Six of one, half dozen of the other. Undecided. Stalemate.

I'll save the best picture/story for last:
Instead of seeing Santa in the hospital like last Christmas, we actually lined up to see him. This was the one and only picture the photographer took. It couldn't be beat! I hope we can do this every year until he gets too big. I love making new traditions!

And that concludes our Thanksgiving festivities posts. Back to reality! Until Christmas vacation that is :)

The tantrum picture made me laugh and I love the Santa picture, but my favorite was the "stalemate" picture of Fox and Joey cause they are BOTH smiling!

Oh, how I love your photos! Such good times! Even the tantrum ones make me smile, truly, because every moment and stage is precious. Even when it doesn't feel like it at the time. :)
