On top of our ceiling fan:
He even followed us to South Carolina and was spotted on Grandma and Papa's mantel! When we returned home from our trip, so did Michael.
He also followed us all the way up to Michigan, but has now moved back up to the North Pole to live with Santa. Hopefully, next November Santa will send another elf to keep an eye on Tyler and Bailey!

Bailey and Grandma had a fantastic time playing peek-a-boo. She even learned how to clap!
Papa took some time to bond with his grand-daughter. She has been trying to get over a cold as well as cutting 2 teeth. Needless to say, she took full advantage of Papa's lap!
We all got up nice and early to open presents. Little Miss was much more interested in eating the paper and bows then opening up or playing with her new toys.
Tyler had a great time playing Santa's little helper and passing out presents to everyone.
Tyler was told that he wasn't going to get any toys this year. He did recieve the basics, underware, pj's, and socks, but was more then thrilled with his new box of art supplies. He immediatley hugged the roll of tape and exlaimed "it's my favorite!"After all gifts were opened, we took Tyler downstairs for his final surprise.
Once uncovered, we asked Ty what he thought of his new 4 wheeler, and he said "it's good." A little less excitment then we expected, but he enjoyed riding it around the neighborhood and down to the lake!

Pator Timm High (that's his name, not his state of being) began the night with a prayer. What a funny guy! Every Wednesday he reads to the preschoolers. Tyler absolutely loves his stories!Tyler was such a proud shepherd!Santa made an appearance during the program too. The kids immediately realized his true identify which made for an adorable conversation. (Nice try Pastor Timm!)It's hard to tell from this picture, but Tyler's head is so small that his hat wouldn't stay up so he spent the entire program looking out of one eye, silly boy!Afterwards we all met for cookies and juice. Here is Tyler and his teacher Ms. Maureen. She rocks!! The kids were able to sit on Pastor Timm's, I mean Santa's lap too! Bailey LOVED him! No crying Santa pictures here!Ms. Maureen posing for a picture. (I told you it would be posted on my blog!)

While Ty and Brandon got the tree settled in, Bailey did a great job of supervising from her walker.

He woke up good and early Thanksgiving morning so he could help Dad with preparing the meal. While Bailey and I snuggled in bed, they were busy making lots of goodies for our dinner. When it came time for the turkey, Tyler just had to jump in and help!
After peeking into the cooker, Tyler's first response was "Where is the tail?" Which was then followed by "There's no head! What happened to the Turkey's head?" Both of these questions led to a very interesting conversation about turkeys and our dinner.
Even though it was only the 4 of us this year, we still managed to have quite the spread of food.
For a child that normally eats very little for dinner, Tyler was very excited to dig into his turkey!
Happy Thanksgiving!! :-)
