Well, this year we got to spend Thanksgiving with the Davenports in Utah and it was great. Sam had such a good time there and loved seeing that part of the family. We got there Thursday afternoon and had Thanksgiving dinner at Mom and Dad Davenports and then Sam opened his first Christmas Present (because he wont see his grandma and grandpa at Christmas)! It was actually his first present ever. He didn't quite know what to do with it so I had to open it for him. It was a hooded blanket his grandma Karen made him. He loved looking at the bear face on it.

The next day Dave got up at 3:30am to do the black friday shopping. I would have gone with him if I didn't have Sam. We got lots of fun things! Then the next day we got to go to aunt Gloria's and have our SECOND thanksgiving dinner! Sam LOVED her 3 little dogs and laughed harder and longer at them than I have EVER heard him laugh in my life. It was the cutest funniest thing. Even when they weren't in the room and I was trying to feed him, every time he heard them he would stop eating and laugh.

Another exciting thing happened that last night we were there (or we thought it would be exciting anyway). Sam's aunt Brooke starting having contractions regularly and close together. But when they went to the hospital the doctor stopped it because they didn't want her going this early. We were all a little bummed because we were hoping to be able to see the baby before we left on Sunday. But everything happens for a reason, right?

Sam started crawling normally the day we left too. He still army crawls sometimes because it is easier for him, but at least he knows how! He also learned how to sit up from the laying down or crawling position, which means it is way harder to get him to actually sleep because when I put him in his bed he either sits right up or tries to climb out.

Well, our Thanksgiving was great and we had a good time spending it with the family. Next is Christmas!!
