Thanksgiving Pictures

This year we had a special treat, grammy came to visit for Thanksgiving!

We went to New York City to see a show, and had lots of time together on her visit.  She was very impressed that Nick ate Thanksgiving dinner with us.  While we could not be with Nick's cousins, we did FaceTime with them so we could feel close.

Here are some pictures from our holiday weekend.

Nick drew a turkey and put it on the refrigerator.

Phantom of the Opera

This weekend we went to New York City to see an Autism friendly performance of Phantom of the Opera.  It is one of grammy's favorite plays, so we got a ticket for her too.

Grammy was very impressed that Nick sat quietly and watched the whole show!  She said, "wow Nick, you have come a long way from the old days when you would not sit quietly for Sesame Street Live."

Sunday is Fried Chicken Night

Every Sunday, Nick wants to have the same dinner - fried chicken and mom's home made mac and cheese.  Last weekend, mom said "you should help make the chicken."

Nick helped with the breading and cooking.  In this picture Nick is tending to the chicken on the stove.  Mom said, "you will help more often, this is delicious!"

Pacific Playground

Last Sunday, mom and Nick went out in the car to run some errands.  Nick told mom he wanted to go to Pacific Playground.  Mom said "we have never been there together."  Nick showed mom the way.

It was a nice warm day at sunset, and Nick had a great time on the swings and climbing on the tower.  We could see a beautiful sunset and kites in the wind from people on the beach enjoying the day.
