It was a little hectic, a little exhausting, and a lot wonderful. My parents came into town to celebrate us, which made everything seem a little more festive and the house a little more full. It was also perfect timing, as the morning they came into town I had been up with the baby most of the night and realized in the morning we were out of coffee (Not OK. Not OK at all.), and as if that wasn't enough our garbage disposal broke and flooded our kitchen. So there I was with three screaming kids, no coffee and severely sleep deprived, and a flooded kitchen.... pretty much on the verge of a nervous breakdown..... and in came my mom with a venti Starbucks and my dad ready to take me to home depot to fix the leak.
Anyway, I digress. Thanksgiving was great. We cooked a fairly large meal (considering there was only four of us) and have food laid out to snack on pretty much all day. I did a lot of the cooking, but thank God for S since I had to keep stopping to nurse baby R!
I didn't take very many pictures, since I was either cooking or juggling the baby the whole time. I managed to snap a few cute ones though!
I even got to enjoy some beer and a card game.... decidedly adult activities and very enjoyable since I have been mired in dirty diapers and nursing and toddler tantrums! I wouldn't change it for the world, but it was nice to site and have some "grownup" conversation for a few hours!
(Nursing, nursing nursing! This kid sure does love to eat! And I love every second of it!)
Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours!
