Abby's 2nd Thanksgiving
November 25, 2010
We had a lot of firsts this Thanksgiving, even though it was Abby's 2nd Thanksgiving. This was our first Thanksgiving at our new home. Our first Thanksgiving without family, although we are very thankful for our friends who were able to share such a special day with us. You know the kind... the kind of friends that can make you feel like you are with family, even though they are miles away, scattered all over the country. It was also our first time to grill the turkey ... okay, I guess I should say it was the hubs first time to grill the turkey ... and he did a fantastic job!! With all these "firsts," we were able to pull off a wonderful meal and enjoy the day with some great friends!
It may have been Abby's 2nd Thanksgiving, but this was the first time she could indulge in the feast. And did she ever. She was just like one of the men! Abby ate turkey, mashed potatoes, homemade macaroni, and a piece of a roll. She wasn't too sure about the stuffing but loved the cranberries and of course pumpkin pie! There is no denying we have an eater on our hands ... and for this I am thankful. Abby eats just about anything, just like her Daddy. A healthy, happy eater equals a healthy, happy baby!
I had a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving, although I'm thankful for these things everyday. Family, friends, God, faith, health. Most importantly, I am thankful to have been blessed with this life. This life that makes me who I am ... a devoted wife and mother, who has faith in the Lord.
Abby & Max - Best friends.
