Giving Thanks



I love Thanksgiving... it is one of my favorite Holidays. After all, you get to eat turkey/chicken with all the fixin's which is my favorite. Definitely still feeling quite full after two dinners. Sunday we went to my parents and Monday we headed out to see Derek's family. Some highlights:

  • A game of tile rummy
  • Anders' favorite toy being grandpa's Perrier bottle
  • Carrot cake, my mom's stuffing, Clyde's potatoes, and pumpkin cheesecake
  • Ninja fruit assassin or something like that on the iPad
  • Teething Anders, poor boy!
  • Derek dressing in layers thinking he would be freezing and having to stand outside to cool down
  • The smell of sweet potatoes, apples, and cinnamon cooking
  • Chatting on the couch
  • Smiling across the room
  • Opening our Thankful Jar and reading special moments over the past month
