This is a throwback to that time I forgot to post our Thanksgiving update. Our thanksgiving was wonderful although we were missing two very important men at our table. Uncle Jason who is currently stationed in Iraq and Uncle Bunny who moved and started his career in Nebraska. Cameron was indeed in “feast mode”, as is the norm for him. He loves to eat and will try anything once. Kayla stuck to turkey, a tiny bit of macaroni, maybe tasted some marshmallows on top of the sweet potatoes and smelled a roll. World’s pickiest eater.
It was also our first Thanksgiving without my grandmother, or as the kids called her, “doo-doo”. Her presence was very much missed but her macaroni and cheese and cheese potatoes live on in our hearts and tummies forever. I know she was there in spirit, with her glass of wine, sampling all the food before the guests arrived and telling inappropriate jokes. We miss you grandma and will never forget your overwhelmingly loving heart, sense of humor and stubborn will 😉 Salut!
So of course we are extra thankful this year, we have two beautiful blessings now! It was Cameron’s first Thanksgiving and unlike his sister, he loves food. He enjoyed sweet potato, mashed potatoes and pumpkin. Even with two kids, we managed to make three stops to visit family and friends. It was such a wonderful day filled with lots of love and laughter.
Kayla also had a Thanksgiving event at school where she wrote on her leaf that she was “thankful for her momma”. She just melts my heart. But if you ask her in person she says she’s thankful for her Daddy, Mommy, Cameron, Rocko and Nonna. She loves her little brother so much. She was so happy to see their matching shirts and loved that Cameron’s said thankful for his big sister and vice versa. She actually snuggles up to him and kisses him in our pictures all on her own, I never even ask her to. It’s the cutest thing ever. Although there are definitely times when she’s snatching his favorite toy out of his hand or singing extra loud when he’s sleeping in his car seat right next to her. But hey, that’s what big sisters are for…I should know 😉
Hope everyone had a beautiful Thanksgiving as well!
