We spent Thanksgiving at Justin’s Grannie and Paw Paw’s house this year. I think I’ve spent the last five years celebrating with them and I just keep coming back for more because the food is amazing. They deep fry the turkey and if you’ve never tried a deep fried turkey before you are missing out. I definitely recommend it. Grannie and Justin’s mom slave away in the kitchen all morning, while Paw Paw cooks the turkey. So I am definitely thankful for them!
I am thankful for my family and wish we could have celebrated with everyone. We missed the ones who could not be with us today!
Last year at this time I was almost nine months pregnant and Jocelyn was born three days later. Jocelyn enjoyed her first Thanksgiving this year. She loved all the food, but I think the sweet potatoes and dressing were her favorites. I am very thankful this year for my baby girl!
I am thankful for naps after the big lunch.
We always play games when we go to Grannie and Paw Paw’s. While I might not always win and am sometimes a poor sport, I am thankful for the time spent laughing with family.
I am thankful for Justin because he is such a great dad and wonderful husband, even when he doesn’t help me win the games 🙂
I am thankful for my friends and hope they all had wonderful Thanksgiving.
I am thankful for God and the many blessings he has given me.
