Cubbie and I are heading home to Oelwein for Thanksgiving. We plan to leave this afternoon so I can catch up with old high school friends tonight before a family day tomorrow!
Cubs always loves going to my parents because he gets attention from Mom and Dad AND he gets to “play” with Kit Kat and Minnie (my dad’s cats).
Holidays are extra fun for Cubbie because the house is full of people. Besides my parents, both my brothers are home, plus my one brother’s girlfriend. Lots of people to give Cubbie attention.
My mom is very excited about this air mattress she bought for us to sleep on. (Yes, I have to sleep on an air mattress, and I’m not even camping)! She keeps talking it up to me about how it even has a head board. Maybe I’ll be impressed…
I’m more interested to see how Cubbie reacts to sleeping on an air mattress. I don’t think he’s ever even seen one before. I’m already preparing myself not to get much sleep tonight!
Once Cubs and I wake up my mom will want us to watch the parade with her. Hopefully we’ll see some of the local students performing.
Then, I have to admit, I’m more like a guy on Thanksgiving. I like to plop on the couch and watch football. Don’t get me wrong, I do help (a little) in the kitchen, but my mom knows what she’s doing and I don’t. That’s one of the things I love best about the holidays… good home cooked food!
Between the air mattress, the food and the people, I’m sure I’ll have a few stories to share about our Thanksgiving holiday!
Cubbie is sleeping on my lap right now. I assume he’s saving his energy for when we arrive home later.
Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
