This is one of the biggest Thanksgivings that we have had here in Amarillo. Not only did Dan, Heather and Danni Richard meet us at Shanny & David’s on Thanksgiving Day, but
Dad & Liz drove into town from Gallup, New Mexico.
Owen wanting a second helping.

Kaden & Danni relaxing after the meal (that Kaden didn't eat)
... and then them wrestling.
I've tried telling Kaden that, "We don't kick our friends."
We spent the majority of Thanksgiving Day cooking and eating… and eating… and eating… with a non-stop football game on the television (the quintessential American Thanksgiving).
We did, however, take a break for some fresh air to traipse through the neighborhood and walk the trail to the park. Although Kaden could barely reach the bar, he insisted on helping push Owen’s jogging stroller a hefty portion of the way.

Look at how those eyebrows knit together... Owen Dow is definitely this man's son!
On Black Friday, Ben basically made Kaden's world by putting up Christmas lights.
About 4 weeks ago, Kaden got on a kick about Christmas and started asking if we were going to put Christmas lights on our house this year. He seemed to have a plan all developed:
"First, we snap our fingers....
Then we put up Christmas lights...
... and then we're going to have Thanksgiving!"
Always stated matter of factly in this order WITH animated hand gestures (one finger pointed in the air).

Schatzi getting her attention fix from dad!
We spent our last night together watching the Mizzou- A&M game at the Dows.
It wasn't the best game for Missouri fans to watch.
Kaden made it about 5 minutes before passing out on the couch... and then cuddling up next to grandpa.
Clearly a divided house.
