Thanksgiving

This year we stayed around here for thanksgiving and went to Eric's Aunt Carol's house. It's so nice to have family near by. Aunt Carol and Eric's mom went all out as usual and made way too much food. Everything was delicious. To give you an example of their out of controlness, here is a list of just the desserts that they made:
2 apple pies
2 pumpkin pies
chocolate cheesecake
pavlova
frozen strawberry dessert
lemon bars
seven layer bars
pumpkin roll
All for 12 people. To give you an example of how much of a fatty i was on thanksgiving, lets just say i had all of the desserts except for one.
Unfortunately I didn't take many pictures this year, but I did get a couple pics of Sierra in a little tugboat that Aunt Carol pulled out for her and a video of her on a slide that she LOVED. It kept her entertained for HOURS. She didn't take a nap at all that day. That's how much she loved the slide.


There are so many things to be thankful for this year. But most of all I am so thankful for my beautiful little daughter who gives me hours of entertainment, my wonderful husband, our families who are such a good example to us and all of our good friends. We are healthy, happy, and have everything that we need and more!
Oh, and did I mention that I get to go to Paris on Saturday for a week with Eric? I'm pretty thankful for that too!
I hope everyone else had a memorable thanksgiving this year too!
