Thanksgiving 2010

Thanksgiving last year. This was exactly one week from delivery.


This year, we had a wonderful Thanksgiving at my Aunt Carol and Uncle George's house. Mounds and heaps of nothing but delicious, fattening foods and best of all, time with family. My Grandma Jo just suffered a heart attack last week and was not able to be there with us. Her fragile age of 97 is taking it's course and even though we were all suffering inside at her absence, we each took the time to record our Thanksgiving wishes to her. The recordings were delivered to her today and my biggest wish is that it put a smile on her face and acknowledged that she was greatly missed.

In only having one nap, Everett was in great spirits.

My brothers

I think I had too much turkey! Everett learned to point at things a few weeks ago. Notice his little finger? :)

And he's still pointing.

And still pointing. He LOVES fans. That's where I was pointing. Everett, I think he missed.

Daddy and Everett! He decided to pull out his "limp noodle" action.

Thanksgiving this year was just wonderful! Everett enjoyed turkey, salmon, dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy, sweet potatoes, jello, pumpkin pie, and ice cream. Of course, they were teeny tiny bites of this and that and yes, I hesitantly offered him a bite of ice cream. He had a minor reaction to the dairy so that was the end of that. I feel so blessed to have shared this day with my family and with Everett and I am proud to say that this year, I avoided a food coma!

A day late but Happy Thanksgiving!
