Thanksgiving 2011 + birthday pie
For the first time in Seth and I’s married life, we had Thanksgiving with just our family. I have to admit, on the days leading up to it, I was a little sad, a little lonely, pining for family far away.
But then, Thanksgiving morning came. And there was no schedule, no pressing commitment except to sometime that day eat copious amounts of turkey and potatoes. I went for a long jog. The entire Lewis crew helped make rolls. We sat down and watched TV! (Macey’s parade.) It was a lovely day. And yes, I made the entire meal by myself (with intermittent “help” from those who wanted to taste-test), but really the Thanksgiving meal makes itself. I even had time for bath.
The meal was lovely and peaceful, just our little family reflecting on this past year’s blessings. And the festivities rolled right into the weekend, where we celebrated Addison’s eighth birthday. Of course, he wanted pie, something large, yellow, and lemony. All in all, a fantastic holiday.
