I have to admit that not being surrounded by extended family does make it not really feel like Thanksgiving. However, we have more than enough to be thankful for around here: all 4 of us are together, Drake is off of his oxygen, for the most part everyone is healthy (Drake has been suffering from a bit of a stomach bug, but is improving on Pedialyte), and Brian's grandmother sent us a wonderful Thanksgiving feast! Brian's dad, Papa, and his brother, Uncle Matt, have been here with us, too.
Even Uncle Matt mentioned that it really didn't feel like Thanksgiving. I quickly reminded him that I was not wearing lounge wear and had even put on make-up; therefore, this was indeed a special occasion. Kennedy has been a big fan of both the ham and turkey that her daddy fried. Yes, I did say both and yes, there were only 4 adults here to eat. Needless to say we have a few leftovers.
The best part of this Thanksgiving holiday has been that every day feels like a Saturday. I keep thinking I will need to pack for Dallas tomorrow, but we still have another day! Yes! More family time!
Celebrating with our little turkeys!
