Stuffed Turkeys

Oh my word.  Are you as stuffed as I am?  Everyone in this house certainly is.  The turkey was delicious, the stuffing was delicious, the sweet potatoes, the pie, the gravy...ALL delicious.  After we all had our fill, we needed to take a nice, long nap to sleep off the food.  I had planned on putting the Christmas tree up while the kids slept, but napping won out in the end.
The spread.  See that sweet potato casserole? To DIE for!
So excited about dinner and her special "bubbly drink" (sparkling grape juice).
Yum yum!
Good food makes for happy kids.

Auntie Yaya and Auntie Mimi bought the girls Candyland and Memory so once everyone was awake and ready, we played Emma's first game of Candyland.  She didn't really "get it," but she had a great time picking up the cards and telling everyone their card colors.  She definitely inherited my competitive nature because she would move one space and shout "I win!"

I win!!!
We let Sophia try a little bit of everything today, even a little bit of pumpkin pie and Cool Whip. I'm pretty sure that she's going to look at us like we've lost our minds when we try to give her "normal" food.  She's going to wonder where the good stuff is.
The pie vultures descend upon their daddy.
Forget the parenting handbook...give this kid some Cool Whip!

I hope your Thanksgiving was filled with lots of fun, lots of food, and lots of love. We had a great day making wonderful memories on our first Thanksgiving as a family of four.
