Thanksgiving 2013 album


My favorite part of the day wasn’t the food (although, the food was amazing) it wasn’t the football (especially since the Packers lost ARG!) it wasn’t driving home and seeing Christmas lights …

My favorite part of the day, wasn’t even eating a spoonful of freshly whipped cream.

It was sitting across from my son at a table of six, making eye contact with him and getting the giggles.  No words were exchanged, they weren’t needed – and we sat trying hard not to laugh as we shared a private joke.

It proved to be impossible and Nicholas ended up leaving the table before he completely lost it.

We laugh … A LOT! Just moments ago – we hugged and I told him “I love you – I’m thankful for you. ”

I’m so blessed to have such a strong connection with my son.  Having spent so much time together alone (that didn’t sound right to me the first time I said it either) we have a bond that is unbreakable.

Hope all who celebrated Thanksgiving and Hanukkah today had many moments that made them smile – and many things to be grateful for.

Here is a sampling of our day.

Pre-dinner silly poses.  I pointed out the sticky-up-hair after the pic 😉

Still unfed – but full of happy

The table – pre-food laden

Visited by my moms dog – Meesha

Went outside to escape the smell of the cooking food – Nic caught a candid moment

image Now I’m just really restless and messing around

AND THEN!

I had no room for dessert – except for that spoonful of whipped cream. 😉

Tomorrow – we’ll recover from a week of food debauchery – no black Friday for us.

If you plan on going – be careful out there!

  1. Now way I’d dare to navigate the black friday madness! Your photos with your son are adorable– it definitely shows that you all have a great relationship. I’m torn between saying he’s lucky and you’re lucky so I guess that means you’re both lucky.

    • What a lovely thing to say! I’m glad you were torn because you’re right – we are both lucky. Thanks for the sweet comment – and I’m glad you’re not going out ‘there’ tomorrow. LOL!

  2. Looks like you had a good time! Guess what? Our granddaughter was here, and being 10 years old, figured it’d be something special to go to the mall on black Friday. So we did. It wasn’t bad at every place though…Kohl’s and Penny’s literally had lines that would have required a 2 hour wait! I mean who does that!!? They wrapped around the entire store, and this was at 11 am. No way! We came, we saw, we left!!
