This year, Anna June had one of the best Thanksgivings ever. She played at home this morning, and then came with me to Nana's to help prepare for the feast. She dusted and helped, and she made this turkey fruit tray with her Granddaddy. (Thanks to Aunt Nonny for recommending it! It was cute and healthy!)
I didn't do too much, but I made cranberry sauce, which was both easy and delicious. I washed some dishes and peeled some potatoes. (We're a little crazy for our carbs: sweet potato casserole, mashed potatoes, and potato salad!)
AJ was very excited when Marcella, Liz and Patrick's other 4 year old niece arrived. The girls played well together, and played Candy Land, Silly Socks, Elefun, dress-up, and football, in addition to sharing our tablet computer. They had a blast. The weather was perfect: highs in the 70s, so it was comfortable to sit and play outside.
We are still adjusting to not napping, and, because we were home and didn't have to cook, we had AJ in bed by 7:15! Amazing!
I hope your day was as great as ours was!
