We do not have a traditional Thanksgiving in the Kothe house. Well, we kinda do on Thursday, but Friday is filled with kielbasi and saurkraut and pierogies. We had a great time. The babies are at a fun age. We deal with about 5 minutes of being shy and then 3 hours of running wild.

What Thanksgiving is complete without your fireman hats!

Unfortunately Grady tore his Turkey hat, but Gwen loved hers!

Yum, dessert!

One year later and she still loves kielbasi.

A little tickle from Grandpa!

Yum, cake!
Grady is confused why Grandpa is turning one when he just turned one! He is hoping it is a veggie and fruit cake.

3 out of 4 ain't bad!
Yes, hubby made a point to tell me he put his arm over his hernia. What a guy! Next year we will do pictures before nap time!

We had a great holiday with the family. Gwen even said Gobble Gobble, or something like it!

Grady does not like Gwen to play with anything. As soon as she starts playing with something he immediately wants it. Grady goes to Gwen with another toy to try to get what he wants. The other day he was hoarding everything on the toy box. He would run away to get another toy and if he saw Gwen going anyplace near the toy box he would run right back over there.

Grady trying to get the top. He typically says "ehhhhhhhh", which I translate to mean "wanna trade?"

Mid swap, Gwen is happy with any toy so she typically goes along with it.

Post swap, everyone is happy until Gwen touches another toy and we repeat..... 100 times a day. It is not just toys, it is pacifiers, sippy cups, plates, snacks, you name it.
