Our Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving was so awesome. More than anything, the break was much needed! 

The morning started off with the baby witnessing her first Turkey Trot. It passes through our neighborhood, so I bundled up Camille and we watched the 5k and 8k runners pass by. I helped her wave and clap for the participants and she was just so cute, taking it all in. We saw people dressed as turkeys, people dressed as pilgrims, people with giant turkey hats on. People-watching at its finest.


My father's side of the family was getting together in Charlotte at my aunt and uncle's house. Gotta love an easy and quick trip when you have a wee one. The guys spent the morning golfing and then joined us at the house later for a true feast. 

I make the cranberry sauce every year, so that was my contribution. We had roasted AND deep-fried turkey, mashed and sweet potatoes, green beans, a corn dish, rolls and biscuits, stuffing, oyster stuffing, pecan and pumpkin pie, oh gosh -- I'm full just thinking about it. 



Friday morning, Ian took us out to breakfast at Little Spoon and then we packed up and hit the road for my family's lakehouse.


A cute moment was watching Camille take a bath in the same sink that my sister Laura bathed in as a baby. When my parents built the lakehouse, they had the sink from our family home put in the kitchen. 

Sidenote, who needs toys when you have a mayonnaise lid?


It was great having the family members there to love on the babe, reading to her...


... and dancing for her. :) You should have heard those belly laughs!


Yesterday, after arriving back in Charlotte, we spent a little bit of time getting the Christmas decorations down from the attic and starting the decorating. 



We had big plans to decorate the tree last night after the baby went to sleep, but then we decided to call it an early night instead. I think I was out at 8:45, no lie. Just exhausted!

So maybe tonight we'll make a little hot chocolate and get those ornaments unpacked. I'm already looking forward it it.

  2. I love the picture of your daughter playing with the mayonnaise lid. I'm always amazed by all of the "toys" that babies can find around the house. My daughter's current favorite is the baby wipe package.
