“Let us remember that, as much has been given us, much will be expected from us, and that true homage comes from the heart as well as from the lips, and shows itself in deeds.” -Theodore Roosevelt
Apart from the typical over eating that accompanies this glorious holiday,Thanksgiving was a busy for us to say the least! Kevin’s family traveled from Chicago to meet little James and it was my first time meeting any of his relatives beyond immediate family. They’ve all been so kind and I am beyond thankful that I will soon be able to call them my family too! So, nerves aside, I spent the day eating and running James to and from family and friends’ houses with Zoe.
Thanksgiving is such an under appreciated holiday. Compared to Halloween and Christmas, it’s often ignored. Yet, since I was young I have always loved the sight of my mother cooking in the kitchen with my father. And the food of course!
I wore my new dress that I actually got on sale at Ross. Since I had James I’ve been less eager to wear dresses, as it can be more tedious than cute. Thankfully, this one was long enough to erase wind worry and the neckline did not hinder breastfeeding.
James’s onesie was a gift from his Grandmother that I believe she got on sale at Carter’s. It says “My first Turkey Day”. He managed to last nearly all day in it before completely soiling himself ha ha.
I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!
