Thanksgiving. This year we have oh so very much to be thankful for. We have been blessed with so many wonderful memories made as a family of three, and starting in mid-July, a family of four. Not every single day has been picture perfect, but if anyone who has a toddler and an infant at home tries to tell you otherwise, know that they must be joking! This year's Thanksgiving marks G's first BIG holiday, and he enjoyed every single minute of all of the extra attention he received from aunts & uncles, cousins, and grandparents.
To prepare for the big day, we read lots and lots of The First Thanksgiving (a cute little lift-the-flap book all about pilgrims and indians), 10 Fat Turkeys (C loved this one!), and Turkey Trouble (a story about turkey trying to avoid becoming the main course on Thanksgiving). When the day arrived, completely unplanned, but worth mentioning, all THREE boys in my family ended up wearing vests. Upon arrival at Grandpa & Grandma W's house, the boy's uncles were questioning if they missed a memo! Joking aside, we enjoyed watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade during the morning, eating lots of delicious food (homemade mac & cheese, dinner rolls, and Grandma S's stuffing were C's favorites, while I'm about 99% confident he didn't bother to try the turkey or ham...#pickyeater), and spending time with family.
This year, we celebrated Thanksgiving with my side of the family the weekend before Thanksgiving. C loved sitting at a table his own size with cousin J, and G had fun being passed around the house between all of his aunts, uncles, and grandparents.
I hope you all had a wonderful day! Happy Thanksgiving!
