This year, I added another person to thank for. This little person has been filling my last three months with joy and laughter. I thought I've learned about loving a brand new person from her brother, but I've learned many new things from her. I am proud to be called "her mom".
This year, hubby and I decided not to have Thanksgiving dinner on our own like what we did this past few years. Cooking the Thanksgiving courses in our small apartment was a bit chaotic last year, which included the turkey smell that was stuck in the carpet for a week. As much as we like having an intimate Thanksgiving supper with our kiddos, we didn't mind waiting a year or two to have it, when we move to our new house.
Thankfully, a family invited us to her house for lunch, and another family invited us for dinner. We had too much fun, too much food, and too much to be thankful for. I made roasted Brussel sprout and an apple cranberry pie for the feast.
