Cole thoroughly enjoyed his first Thanksgiving! We had a Jett family Thanksgiving in Dallas this year and it was a really great weekend. Aunt Biz came first. She arrived late Tuesday night and met Cole for the first time. They bonded immediately so she took the night shift so that Cory and I could sleep at little! Then on Wednesday she served as his first babysitter so I could go get my hair cut and run some errands sans baby. This was my first "mother's day out" and it felt good. I had not been away from him for that long yet so I missed him but they had a great time playing and making cookies! Then on Wednesday night Mom and Dad and Katty arrived. Cory made fried pheasant for dinner and we all just sat around admiring Cole - hehehe, he loved it! We went downtown on Thursday morning to run in the 41st annual Turkey Trot. Dad ran the 8 mile course and the rest of us walked the 3 mile fun run. Cory pushed Cole in the stroller so that he could say he had officially completed his first 5K at just 5 weeks old! We all had a great time and enjoyed the craziness of the event. There were over 34,000 participants and tons of great Thanksgiving costumes and general merriment. We got home around noon to start preparing Thanksgiving dinner and rounded out the evening with a big feast and some card games. The rest of the weekend flew by...we shopped a little on "black Friday" and took Cole on several walks. We played cards and sat around holding Cole and napping. Everyone had a great time and Cory and I thoroughly enjoyed hosting our first holiday!
