Yesterday was Thanksgiving. This is one of my favorite holidays and, following tradition, we spent it with my parents in Sacramento. My mom and I usually spend the day before Thanksgiving in the kitchen together but since I have two 7 month olds she would not let me do anything this year (or last year for that matter since I was pregnant w/ the twins). She wouldn't even let me bring a pumpkin pie!! Can you say spoiled! In all honesty, I've missed our time together preparing the Thanksgiving meal, but, at the same time, I think it would be more of a distraction if I was there w/ the boys! So, when we got to her house we filled our bellies with turkey, green bean casserole - her best to date I might add, sweet potatoes, stuffing, brussel sprouts, mashed potatoes w/ gravy, and lots and lots of pie! We had enough pie to feed the neighborhood. Pumpkin, Pecan, Cherry and Mixed Berry! Mmmmm In addition to all the food, we enjoyed a movie together - Four Christmases - and took a bagillion pictures of the boys on their first Thanksgiving! It was a great day. We have so much to be thankful for - most of all our wonderful family!
I'm just now realizing as I add photos to this post that I didn't take any pictures of our delicious meal. Sorry Mom! It was really good and very much appreciated. We missed many of the "regulars" - friends and family that weren't able to make it this year - but it was great to spend a calm and relaxing day with our family. Happy Thanksgiving.
