Happy thanksgiving to everyone. A lot has happened this year that I am truly grateful for. Julie is doing much better, CeCe was born a beautiful and healthy little girl, Jorja and Ginny both continue to amaze me.
This year Julie cooked her first turkey. We took the slightly more citified approach (as opposed to Jorja's method) and bought a turkey breast from Costco. That way it was already dead, much less hassle than taping it's beak shut and cutting off it's wings. Anyway, it turned out awesome. She made stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, turkey (obviously), carrots, cranberry sauce, cherry pie, banana cream pie (we don't do pumpkin pie). The two older girls ate everything except the potatoes and gravy (they never have liked potatoes). Somehow, they prefer ketchup on their turkey rather than gravy. Crazy. CeCe on the other hand, loved mashed potatoes and gravy, as well as the cranberries and banana cream pie (minus the crust - basically pudding I guess). Maybe if we start her early, we will have one potato eater. We picked up a bottle of sparkling fruit juice in a wine-looking bottle complete with a cork, and let the girls drink out of wine glasses. They thought that was pretty cool. We even got out the fine china which I think we'll need another setting of when CeCe gets a little bigger.
All in all, it was a great long weekend. The weather was super - I heard on the radio that we had snow last thanksgiving. Here's to a week filled with turkey sandwiches and farts. Later.
