We had a wonderful Thanksgiving here in Atlanta. We are blessed to have both of our families here, so we had two Thanksgiving dinners! We went up to my parents’ house first. Unfortunately Eddie had to stay in NYC to study for his finals so it was just my parents, my “Aunt” Amy and Bob (who drove in from North Carolina) and our family. We had a wonderful time and it was great to catch up with everyone – Amy and Bob hadn’t met our little princess yet!
And Eddie sent us some pictures live from the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade – he said it was awesome to be there in person!
Then it was off to the Eco’s house for “dinner” number two and dessert. Most of the cousins and family were there and the kids had a blast seeing everyone. I can’t believe I forgot my camera so all of the pics from the day were from my iphone (which are not nearly as good)!.
Prior to having the whole week off for Thanksgiving, the kids had their Thanksgiving feasts at school. Catelin’s was on Thursday and unfortunately neither Steve nor I could make it, but she didn’t mind at all!!
Steve pulled double duty on Friday and made it to both Ty and MJ’s feasts before heading down to the hunting cabin in Griffin…
We had a lot of fun down at the cabin- MJ was so excited to “go hunting!”
At MJ’s Muffins for Moms two weeks ago, they had “How to Cook a Thanksgiving Turkey” worksheets hanging right outside the classroom. The task was for each of them to answer the questions by themselves without any help from the teachers. The first question was “where do we get the turkey?” Most of the kids answered “at the store” or “Publix”, “Kroger”, etc. Oh, but not my MJ! Here was his answer:
That’s right! “My daddy shot it”!!!! Right outside the classroom for everyone to see. I hope there aren’t too many “anti-hunters” in the school!
It was a wonderful holiday. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
