Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope you had a happy Thanksgiving! I know I had a great time. I spent Thanksgiving getting passed around and collecting kisses from all of the family up north in Warroad. Some of them got big kisses right back! I also got to watch lots of kids playing. Dad says those kids are my second cousins but I'm not sure what that means. I met my Great-grandpa C for the first time. He liked to call me "Sir William." I think it sounds important.

While we were up north we went to the Polaris museum. I guess my grandpa Ron used to work at Polaris when he and Grandma were first married. But they didn't give him enough of a raise so they moved down to Rice. I'm glad they didn't give him another 5 cents because then my dad met my mom and that was sure good for me!

We had dinner at Great-grandma and grandpa McKeever's house in Warroad. Great-grandma told lots of stories. She's had quite a life! She talks about writing down her stories. I hope she does so I can read them later when I'll remember them better.

On our trip we spent lots of time in the car with Grandma, Grandpa, Auntie Dawn and Uncle Nathan. It wasn't too bad. I slept a lot. When I was awake I played with toys, read books, and practiced my talking with Mommy and Grandma. I'm getting really good at "Mmmm" and even said "Moo" once! It was pretty hard work, though, so I haven't been able to do it again since.

It's nice to be home and sleeping in my own bed again. We went to Grandma and Grandpa Lanz's house to get my puppy, Belle, today. She had a good time playing with Uncle Michael while we were gone but she was happy to be home, too.
