We enjoyed 70 degree weather for the Thanksgiving holiday so we met up with Elly’s cousins for a little beach time in the morning. Elly had fun getting her feet wet while Miles took in the scenery from his car seat.
Later the kids put on their Thanksgiving gear, yes they had Thanksgiving outfits, Jamie insisted.
At 11 pounds, 14 ounces Miles almost weighed as much as the 12 pound turkey. Elly was perplexed when the turkey came out of the oven without any eyes. It’s got to be a little disturbing for kids that they’re told to eat turkey on Thanksgiving after reading cute stories about turkeys and making turkey crafts leading up to the holiday.
The meal was great, especially since it was prepared and even cleaned up by my Mom, thank you! I should plan to have an infant around for every major holiday that we host. For dessert we enjoyed pies and turkey cookies that Elly made earlier in the week.
We had a great holiday and definitely have much to be thankful for.
