Happy Thanksgiving 2011!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! We started off the morning cleaning and working on potty training, and then got to work cooking. Ben brined the turkey overnight. He decided to get some wood chips for extra flavor, so Owen got to go on an excursion out of the house in his big boy underpants! Came home without an accident - yay!

Grandma, Grandpa, and Aunt Hillary came over right as the kids woke up from their naps. The weather was gorgeous, so everyone played outside a little while Ben and I finished up cooking. All the food came out delicious ~ we ate until we were stuffed. Vivian LOVED the turkey, sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie. Owen ate less than we thought he would, but to me that is a sign that he needs to go number 2, which he didn't do yesterday. He's been reluctant to go #2 on the potty, but after he does, he says his belly feels better, so he knows he needs to.

Overall though, today has been the BEST day of potty training yet. Only one tiny wet accident, and he totally caught himself and said he had an accident and then filled up the potty with pee instead of his pants. It's really starting to click. During our Thanksgiving prayer before we ate, I even threw in a "I'm thankful that Owen is pretty much potty-trained!" to add to our list of things we were thankful for this year.
