Hello friends! Happy December 1st!
With that said I have to back track to November and I want to talk about Thanksgiving.
This was our first Thanksgiving as a family of three and it was great!
Our holiday started Wednesday night with #babybigtruck and I spending the night at my mom’s house. See my mom has not been feeling 100% lately so she wanted to go out to dinner instead of cooking this year. At frist I was okay with it then the more I got to thinking about it the more I was not for the idea. I talked to my mom about it and after talking with her and telling her that Mr. Big Truck and I would help her cook and clean up we decided that we would all cook at moms. Since we were now cooking it was just easier for #babybigtruck and I to stay the night before.
Thursday morning we got up and got at it. I helped mom get the bird ready and stuffed it while my niece and #babybigtruck played. We got the sweet potatoes going, the turnips, the regular potatoes, the brussels sprouts were prepped and I got the stuffed mushrooms ready to go in the oven. We also threw together some corn pudding, stuffing and veggies. Good stuff! After all the food was ready and cooking I hopped in the shower and got myself together.
Grandma and Grandpa with all the grandkids!
My brother and his family came over about 3 and we were sitting to dinner by 3:30pm. We all chatted and just had a nice time being together. #babybigtruck showed off by eating all kinds of food including turkey, mashed sweet potatoes, turnips, cranberry sauce, and veggies. After dinner we helped mom clean up and then set out to go to Mr. Big Trucks side of the family.
We got to my mother in laws house and we were hanging out waiting for my sister in law Erin and brother in law Jim to get to the house with their daughter. When they got there I notced that their daughter had a t-shirt on over her dress. I thought to myself something is up. That shirt just did not match her dress. I started to actually read the shirt and it said “This year I am thankful I am going to be a BIG SISTER!” As soon as I read it I was super excited and screamed. I was the first one to notice what the shirt said and once I started everyone else realize what was going on. Yup my sister in law is pregnant with her second child! We were very excited. She is due July 15th and get this her first borns birthday is July 26th. Ummm yeah. The kids will be just shy of 3 years apart. We are all excited for them.
Overall Thanksgiving this year was great and now we are ready to bring on the Christmas season!
