Thanksgiving was a fun filled day with the Mones. We went on a family walk in the morning with the Howells, and the Mapps. The picture where I look like a crazy mom torturing her child? It was really cold out (obviously colder than I had planned for), so I have my hat on with my hood over it and I'm wearing the Ergo, a carrying device for Ramona when she tires of walking SLOWLY on the path. I'm also swinging her and she was LOVING it, laughing and smiling.....even though in the picture it kind of looks like she is screaming. Ok, I know.....I just look like a crazy mom torturing her child. Ramona was such a slow walker we had to think of creative ideas to get through the walk without being late to Thanksgiving dinner. I swung her, picked her up, prodded her to "get" Max......however the only time she usually picked up speed was when she turned around and ran backwards.....giggling.

The middle picture is Ramona in her stylin' Thanksgiving outfit, mainly outfitted by Angela, Matt and Ava. The clip however vanished soon after this picture, never to be seen again.....I hope she didn't eat it.

Ramona didn't care much for the turkey dinner (though my mom will want you all to know that she did like the mashed potatoes), however she devored the THREE types of pies. My brother would want you all to know that he thinks her skills with the spoon are severely lacking. He doesn't have much understanding for the little ones and their poor small motor skills.

The last picture is Ramona doing her crazy bizznizz that she does around the house. She loves playing in the bathroom with her bath toys, and the poncho is her new favorite accessory. Ok, the little one is awake.....must end blog post NOW.

Grayson and Ramona

Ramona has a little friend named Grayson, and we had the pleasure of hanging out with him a little the last few days. He is a busy, gentle little guy, and he plays wonderfully with Ramona. If only they still did arranged marriages........
