It has been a busy busy 4 days! I’m stuffed, probably 5 pounds heavier, and very tired but what fun it was! I’ve realized that as a child I don’t think I knew what Thanksgiving was all about and certainly didn’t appreciate it for what it was. It was one day of the year you gathered with family that you hardly knew, ate lunch, made some small talk, and found an excuse to leave as soon as possible. As an adult I look forward to Thanksgiving. I love seeing all the different families come together and really truly enjoy each other’s company. The grown-ups have a great time sitting back catching up with everyone and the kids just LOVE to run around with their cousins, friends, and siblings.
We had two separate Thanksgivings to celebrate between families. Each celebration had its unique moments that made each one as rememberable and special as the other.
The beginning to the holiday season has really started out with a bang! I can’t wait to see what the last month of 2010 has in store for us also.
I love this picture of Keagan. He was so excited to bring me my birthday pie. Of course he had to help blow out the candles and open my presents for me too. 😉
