Callie's first Thanksgiving was a success. We all have so much to be thankful for this year. We are most thankful to have little Callie in our lives but of course are thankful to share with all our family and friends both near and far. I am thankful we got to spend time with my family and friends back east. I am thankful for my loving husband who is also a great dad. And thankful to have health and happiness in all of our family this year.
In the morning we took Callie for a walk to see the neighbor Gordon. We used the jogging stroller that double great aunt Charl got for us, and it worked great on the rough terrain. Callie enjoyed visiting and Gordon let us sit on his tractor. She enjoyed the ride so much she fell asleep on the way home! Isn't she adorable sleeping in her snow suit?
Then we had a nice thanksgiving dinner with my parents, grandma and Ashley, my brother and Heather. We took some photos outside in her fancy outfit. The small Christmas tree was the one we had last year for Callie's first Christmas when I was still pregnant. My dad planted it and its growing big just like Callie.
Callie sat in her high chair and ate peas, carrots, butternut squash and homemade biscuits. It was all delicious! Thanksgiving is really an awesome holiday if you ask me. It's all about family and food and there are no cards, presents, etc. it's just about enjoying those you love and all you have. We had a great day. Thanks for thanksgiving :)
In the late afternoon we went to see Pa Kay and the extended Gladue family, check out the next post.
