Failed Christmas Card Photos

Charlie's first Christmas. A must-have photo, right? We spent the long Thanksgiving weekend in pursuit of the perfect picture. You will see a similar trend, beginning with this cheery family photo....

Thanksgiving Day

We started the day with the Parkville Turkey Trot, as is tradition in our family. Last year (see photo below) Charlie ran the race with Paige when she was 30 weeks preggo. This year Charlie just watched, despite this picture of him with the overall winner's trophy. Charlie and Dad relaxed in the afternoon, watched some football, drank some beer.
Charlie loved everything at the Thanksgiving table. He ate til we thought he was going to pop!
Charlie and Annie are just about the same size. He pats Annie very gently and loves to follow her around.
There were some shananigans later in the evening that involved a bird flying into the house. Ryan and Julie came to our rescue.
Although their strategy was unique (??) they did get the bird outside safely.
