We had prepped her that for Thanksgiving, we were traveling up to Nana and Papa's house for the weekend. She was beyond thrilled to be leaving, so on Thursday AM, she woke up bright and early, and was ready to put her shoes on to leave by 7AM. It took CJ and I quite the extended amount of time to pack the car, as we now have 2 kids, 2 dogs, and plenty of gear to take with us. And that's with my parents having a lot of the things we need already at their house!
We got there in time for Thanksgiving dinner. We were joined by my Aunt Barb, my cousin Becky, her daughter, Aubrie, my brother Darren, his girlfriend, and her son, Wyatt. Wyatt is exactly one year older than Keifer (to the DAY! Same birthday), and Keifer was also dancing for joy to be able to finally meet Wyatt,after hearing about him for weeks. She had been calling Wyatt (for pretend) on her cell phones to tell him they were going to play together.
Whew. It went off without a hitch, and Keifer was in great jacked-up spirits as she ran around, screeching after Wyatt and her older cousin, Aubrie. Kyla was as sweet and cuddley as ever, taking in the sights and sounds and refusing to nap for us - I think she was also too jacked up!
Wyatt was taking his turn on the piano, while Keifer danced circles around him (literally)! These two had quite the time *sharing* the piano!
