Gobble Gobble Turkey and Triscuits

We were fortunate to spend Thanksgiving with many family members and friends.  Mikan's kindergarten class celebrated Thanksgiving week at their school and had different Thanksgiving foods in school each day.  Mikan was a good sport about trying small amounts of different things although he clearly didn't like them.  When the real thing came around, all he ate were Triscuits.

It seems like this is the first year that Mikan is really aware of and interested in Christmas and learning about Jesus' birth and Advent.  Last year, I remember him only being mildly interested in opening presents and having some basic understanding of someone coming to our house to drop off presents.  He has been asking a lot of questions about Christmas, like, "What is a nativity?" and "Why couldn't Jesus be born in a hotel?"  But he also isn't deaf to the consumerism abounding on the radio waves.  In the car today he asked me, "Why is everyone talking about Black Fridays?"

Mikan was only interested in putting one ornament on the tree (A Magic Johnson basketball player ornament).  Everything Anica put on the tree, Drexler pulled off.
