First Thanksgiving

 Not only was this Cooper's first Thanksgiving, but it was also his first trip to Newton!  Josh's grandmother, Nanny, lives there along with some of his cousins and every year Nanny does a great job hosting everyone.  We had such a wonderful time visiting with everyone and introducing them to our new little man.

 Everyone pitched in and was hard at work!
Cousin Brett was so excited to play with Caroline and Cooper that he guarded the stairs while they were taking a nap.  He made sure he heard them if they happened to get up.  :)

 Nanny made sure Cooper tasted everything and Cooper did not complain!  He ate turkey, green beans, sweet potatoes, stuffing, rolls and anything else anyone put on his plate.  Oh and he even had some banana pudding!

 The annual football game was held outside.  The weather was so beautiful and Nanny's yard was the perfect  place for it!  The big trees and open space was so refreshing to see.
 I tried to get some cute pictures of Cooper outside {minus his sweater} but he was too focused on the football game.  
 Aunt Rosemary took the kids for rides on the golf cart.  Everything was fine and dandy while they were going slow.  However, I didn't crop this picture to explain what really happened!  With a full cart, everyone was having fun when Caroline got excited and walked across the front.  Well she actually stepped on the gas pedal and everyone watched, in what seemed like slow motion, while the golf cart drove directly into the wagon pictured in the background below.  The cart crashed and everyone was startled just a bit.  It could have been a lot worse, but everyone was okay.  Thank goodness!

 Brett was such a great cousin and loved playing with Cooper!
