Let me start by saying I love Thanksgiving. This year was a little more laid back than previous years since we were missing some family members because the teeny tiny triplets are still teeny tiny. But it was fun nonetheless. I love good food, sitting around with family just catching up, then eating desert, and then talking and reminiscing. We spent the actual day at Michael’s grandparent’s house. During desert we watched their old Super 8 films from when they lived in California. She had them transferred to DVD. I recommend everyone do this! That way they last forever and you can actually watch them and pass them down.

Michael’s family fries a turkey and has a great big ole ham.

Lucy like Thanksgiving too. She really just liked all the leaves on the ground. We don’t have leaves in Wilmington.
