Happy Thanksgiving

The Smykay Family has a lot to be thankful for this year, including the fact that Trevor actually had the holiday off work to spend with the family. We had a great time at Grandma Adams's house with the extended family enjoying food, fun, and most of all, each other's company.

Since it was Audrey's first Thanksgiving, we decided to dress her up to suit the occasion. Okay, I am stretching the truth a bit. If it was up to me I would have just pulled something out of the closet. We have Aunt Angie and her shopping habit to thank for her cute, festive ensemble.

To make the day even more special we decided it was the perfect occasion to offer Audrey her first taste of solid food (good old rice cereal, if you can call that a solid).

Not surprisingly given her interest in other people's food for the past couple of weeks, she sure seemed to like it. Cousin Alexa even got in on the action, but Audrey thought she might need a little help, so her first spoon feeding even included a bit of self-feeding.

A fun and relaxed holiday to remember. It was even capped off by a practical joke. You know in college how it was always so funny to take a magic marker to the face of the first person to pass out at a party? Well, seems like Uncle Jay hasn't really matured past that particular phase and he surreptitiously altered Audrey's bib while pretending to help her with her vibrating teether...
