thanksgiving 2012

I love a holiday that I put no expectations on.

Thanksgiving 2012 was that for me.

I told Paul the night before that I wasn't getting ready, I was going be taking naps, I was going to do lots of sitting around, and eating. I accomplished all of it, and although I was a little grumpy...it was a total success. I get tend to get grumpy when I don't get fresh air on my face. I should have planned a walk or something, but by the time the grumpiness had sunk in...it was too late.

I spent the morning in the kitchen cooking, and snacking. My biggest helper in the kitchen is always Devin. He loves cooking, or maybe all the eating. Either way, I love it.

The kids played, and didn't get ready either. They made messes, and I didn't get all bent out of shape about them cleaning the toys up right away.
By the time the meal was even done, everyone was ready for a nap. At about Noon, I woke up Savannah and Paul woke up Devin to eat. Only one of them was happy to eat, and it wasn't Devin. So 2 minutes of whining we sent him back to bed, and we didn't see him for another two hours. He definitely got the memo that Thanksgiving is for naps.

My favorite part of Thanksgiving this year, besides the obvious pumpkin pie...was Paul's prayer before we ate. He said something he was thankful for about each of us, I couldn't help but get a little choked up when he said what he was thankful for about Sabrina. He said he was thankful she tried so hard to stay in Mommy's stomach so that she could be a part of our family. Gosh, she is such a little miracle. What a whirlwind of a year we have had.
Savannah complained of a stomach ache a couple of times, but honestly I didn't put much thought in to it...she tends to be a little dramatic. {Don't tell her I said that.} She had taken a couple of baths, and was still a little off. After the babies were asleep, I heard Paul in the bathroom with her...she had finally thrown up.

Awesome ending to Thanksgiving eh? Although all the turkey must of helped Sabrina sleep, because she slept for a good 6 hours straight...which has never happened.
Paul also decided he was going to a late movie, and hit up some Black Friday sales after. Black Friday was way too chaotic for him, and we decided it wasn't worth the discount...we will be paying full price when the lines aren't ridiculous!

Hope your Thanksgiving was filled with pumpkin pie, and awesome! Oh, and I may have gotten in the Christmas spirit and put my Christmas tree last night too.

It is my goal in life to never cook Thanksgiving dinner. If we ever move far away from all our families, we're going to a restaurant. No joke.

I am all about paying full price! :)

I am glad your thanksgiving was pretty darn great. (I am sure you could have done without the puking)
