After driving home from Louisiana last night, I realized how much I love the DVD player. It is normally a 4 hour trip, but due to massive rain, holiday traffic, and several wrecks the trip took us about 5 and half hours. At one point Ryland was having a complete meltdown, John Chris was yelling, and I was crying. There we were packed in a truck with all of our stuff in the cab, so it would not get soaked, completely stopped on the interstate, Cooper in my lap, rain pouring down, and Ryland having a fit.
I would have given anything for that darn DVD player! Anything!

I wish I could understand what he was saying.
"oh, you crunchy leaf. How do you taste?"
Cooper loves to chase the frisbee. I swear you could never throw it enough times for him to give up. He is totally focused on fetching it over and over.

After breakfast mom and I ran to a few stores to due a little shopping. We ventured into Kohls and racked up on toys for Ryland at 50% off! I think Nanna must have told him, because he can't stop smiling.

Ryland did not care for the helmet. This is the only picture I was able to snap before he slung it off.

As I stop to think of the many, many things I am thankful for this year, I can't help thinking about those that are less fortunate. After a discussion with John Chris, we decided to do some sort of volunteering on future Thanksgivings. We really want our son and future kids to understand and appreciate what they have, and we want them to have a kind heart and a helping hand.
A very thankful Thanksgiving in 2009!

The ballet production was good, and it got me in the holiday spirit. Chanda goes every year, and I hope to joining her in the tradition!

Cheese! Ryland was starting to wear down. Time for a nap!
Ryland and Uncle MoMo like to hang out. Ryland is a chick magnet, and Uncle MoMo enjoys Ryland's leftovers.

Notice the sly grin.
