Poor little girls, they don't have the pleasure of all of those savory dishes yet....but, I bought them some Sweet Potato Baby Food so they could begin their Thanksgiving Lives in the proper way.
So, to keep a record for my girls, I'll rattle off some of the thoughts about their first Thanksgiving.
--On Wednesday, Aunt Ginger came and cooked with me ... we made Sweet Potato Casserole & Mac-n-Cheese....Jeremy and Eric played in the yard while we gabbed in the kitchen....then we went over to Grandaddy's house and played and visited....Mommy ended the night double checking that we had enough cranberry sauce for the next day.
--Thursday morning, Mommy and Daddy busily got things ready for our whirlwind day. We needed to pack enough stuff so that we could be prepared at Grandaddy's house and then drive up to Spartanburg to see Daddy's family at his MomMom's house (your Daddy's grandmother).
--Lunch at Grandaddy's was awesome....so much good food. Such good turkey and dressing and everything else! You two girlies slept through lunch....Mommy had brought your high chairs over so that you could eat like big girls at the table, but surprisingly, you slept! Perfect timing, though, because as Daddy and I were finishing eating, you woke up ready for your bottle and faSweet Potatoes. Both of you loved your Sweet Potatoes! Yay! Your Turkey Day Futures are off to a great start.
--Around 3, we left for Spartanburg, but had to take a detour because Mommy's clothes were all sticky. As I was fixing glasses before lunch, a Dr. Pepper exploded all over me and the kitchen. Good thing that's one of my favorite drinks!
--Around 5:30, we made it to MomMom's for dinner. Mommy always looks forward to these visits because they are filled with kindness, love and a relaxed atmosphere. The food was wonderful and it was so nice to share the girls with sweet family who had prayed for us to be blessed with babies. So neat to think that last year, at MomMom's, Charles surprised his family during the blessing when he prayed over the food and asked the Lord to bless the two babies we were expecting. Everyone opened their eyes and dropped their jaws. :)
--We got home around 11 on Thanksgiving night. It was a wonderful day. The girls did great on the drive both ways. They're able to play with toys now and enjoy the dangly things on their carseats.
