I got to babysit my super cute nephew Will for 5 days while my sister went to NYC for Thanksgiving with her in-laws.  It was a little bit of an adjustment to remember what it's like to have a toddler around, but it was so much fun!  My kids were in heaven pretending to have a little brother, especially Jack, who hates always being the youngest.  :)

Thanksgiving with nice.... I don't know why I don't have any photos.  Oh yeah.  I do know why.  Because I was too busy chasing a toddler and trying to keep him from breaking the china and crystal, and destroying the center pieces, and mangling the decorations, and smearing mashed potatoes on everyone's best clothes, and.... well, you get the idea.

But seriously, it was really fun to have Will around.  He totally adapted so easily.  He just immediately accepted that we were his new family.  It was quite funny.  I guess it helps that I look a bit like and talk like his mom.... were are sisters, you know.

Oh.  I almost forgot.  I ran the Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving Day!  My first 10K!  It was super hard, but I managed to run the whole time (if you can call what I do running..... very slow running).... I didn't walk at all.  Yay!  It was way better than my first 5K, where I couldn't even run the whole time, and my knee hurt so bad for the next couple of days that I could hardly walk.  Ugh. 

So, that's progress.
