We spent the rest of the day watching Ohio State clobber Michigan for the fifth straight year (a school record I might add)....GO BUCKS! Oh yeah, and we played with Grandma and Grandpa too.
Then, before bathtime, Madelyn got all dressed up in her pretty party dress and got to eat her dinner in the dining room- ooooooo. Madelyn had two of her favorites- sweet potatoes (which Mommy and Grandma Mary made while making the big people their sweet potato casserole) and pear/blueberry/oat- yum! You can see below that Madelyn enjoyed her bowl much more than the food to come...
Then all the adults sat down to eat on Madelyn's first faux-giving. Mom, Dad, Grandma, Uncle Jeffrey, Grandma and Grandpa Barry, and Aunt Amanda and Uncle Wayne (we needed to bring in Uncle Wayne as reinforcements to assist with the eating of the 17 lb. turkey because NO ONE can eat turkey like Uncle Wayne).
All of these festivities wore out Miss Madelyn so she took a little break on Grandpa!
Not that this part of the story has much relevance but I think Grandpa looked just fabulous in his pink apron :-)
On real Turkey Day Madelyn spent the morning bouncing in her jumper while Grandma and Mommy made another tart (Uncle Jeffrey eats them like they are going out of style). This one was apple, pear, plum and was quite tasty. Madelyn mostly like the bouncing, she didnt much care about the tart.
Since Uncle Jeffrey had to work on Thanksgiving, we ate later and Miss Madelyn did not make it until dinner time but here is her little Thanksgiving dinner. She had peas and pear-plum which we made her using the fruit we bought for the tart- she liked this fresh fruit stuff!
One last hug before going up for bathtime...
