Turkey Holiday Festivities

Oh man, it was so nice to have Jake home and all to ourselves for 4 whole days! The best part was that I got to sleep in for 2 of those days. It was so heavenly! Since that weekend Cooper has constantly been asking for daddy and Luke has 100% become a daddy's boy--which is fine by me! We had lots of fun with a house packed full of 30 guests--us Jewkes just don't know how to go small! I volunteered to do the favors (a Mayflower boat made out of clay and a sail that I forgot to take a pic of) and the centerpiece which I thought turned out rather nicely.
(This is Cooper doing his own imitation of the "boats" that I was making) Turkey was eaten, pie was hoarded, and Rock Band was rocked!The next day we made sugar cookies and had tons of fun at some all-in-one entertainment place. They had a driving range, batting cages, arcade games, air hockey, and a jungle gym to die for. Even Luker learned to love it after a good hour of coercion. Cooper was so tuckered out that he fell asleep on Jake's shoulder at El Charro after playing. That is pretty much a once-in-a-lifetime experience.Luke and cousin Jonah (so funny!):We spent Saturday and Sunday decorating for Xmas and resting. It was such a fun holiday that it really was hard to face reality again on Monday. Besides, I think I spent several days without changing a single stinky diaper. I love Jake!
