It was a quiet and laidback Thanksgiving over here. We didn’t travel because being 39 weeks pregnant kind of stops that sort of thing. My parents did make a visit over our way though, which was nice to have some family here. It didn’t feel quite like Thanksgiving, my mind is more focused on the baby and preparing for Christmas.
It was nice to slow down a bit though, to enjoy some food and relax. Jordan had 4 days off in a row and it has been amazing. We’ve been taking it easy and soaking up not having to do much because our life is about to change very soon. I’m sad he goes back to work tomorrow and have my fingers crossed baby comes at a good time, but there’s still not any big signs yet.
We kept the Thanksgiving meal pretty simple and delicious, of course. I didn’t make any of this, I want you to know. While I am a vegetarian, the perk of hosting means you get to decide the sides, which are my main course. And casseroles always win.
Notice the Halloween decor.
I snuck a photo of my fall mantle scape before switching it out to Christmas. I was totally into this sort of sad and creepy decor, I need to get rid of this now dried greenery, but they’re still so gorgeous.
My mom made cookies with Ruby, she, of course, insisted on doing everything herself.
Notice Jordan digging into the pecan pie in the background.
Overall we’re very thankful. Thanksgiving was just what we needed to slow down and to enjoy some time with each other. So, so glad to have these two (three!!) and while I’m so excited for this little babe to show up, I’m really glad I had some time with these two this weekend.
She’s always making us laugh.
She loves her grandpa, she endearingly calls paka.
story of my life these days, she always wants mama.
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving as well!
