Thanksgiving went really well this year! We really like having a super mellow, small affair when it comes to Thanksgiving.
The baby took a two hour nap which was just enough time for me to put together the items I didn’t buy pre-made and to heat up the items I did buy pre-made! He woke up just after I’d put all the food on the table! I breastfed him while Allan loaded everyone’s plates up. Then we all ate! After dinner we each got a project life card to write what we’re thankful for on and those went into our family scrapbook album. I then gave the kids another one to write (and color!) on again for Thanksgiving for their individual albums. Then we all went outside and hung out for a while in the amazing weather! It was perfect!
It was cute when Allan went to put food on all the kids’ plates. He said he was the waiter and he got a pen and paper and took their orders. I wish I’d video’d it or something because it was adorable! The kids loved it!
I annoyed the crap out of the family by asking for five minutes to take some group pictures. I desperately wanted to set up the tripod and get one of all of us but I knew they’d all hate me forever so I skipped that! ha
