Yesterday was the first time Tim and I hosted Thanksgiving at our house. It was a small, delicious and quite lovely celebration of the day. There were eight adults and our two boys. My BIL made the turkey so I didn’t have to worry about that part (thank you Brian!) and his girlfriend Darlene brought some especialy yummy rolls from the Czech bakery (hello, the Czech girl here LOVES that!) so I didn’t have to stress over making the ones I was going to attempt from scratch. Total. Blessing. Darlene, you rock.
Here is the table before we chowed down. (maybe only the third or fourth time we used our wedding china…)
I’m not sure if you can tell but there’s something a tad amiss in this photo. See…the space that is traditionally a formal dining room in our house is currently being used as a play room complete with full on train table and tons of other stuff
that I need to clean out before Christmas. And our eat-in area in the kitchen is a little small for a table for 8 so… we added the leaf to the table moved it into the living room and ate in there. It worked perfectly.
And the Cowboys won so my husband would say it was a pefect day all together. And well, I pretty much have to agree.
I wish we could spend it with both our families and maybe someday we can have everyone over. Not sure my living room is big enough though…
Oh, and I think I said something about THREE milestones, right?
Well…somehow the stars aligned in the blogosphere and TODAY marks both my 2 year Blogaversary (is there an official spelling for this term?) AND my 400th post! Is that crazy or what?
I am especially thankful for all the friends I have made through blogging. It really is an amazing community and I had NO idea how wonderful and fulfilling it could be when I first started. I can remember telling Tim that I thought I’d start a blog to keep people updated on The B Man and our life. I was sitting in our driveway with my old laptop, watching The B Man playing while Little G was just forming in my belly. And all I can say now is “who knew?”
There’s some exciting stuff
(giveaway) going on in this neck o’ the woods this week so “stay tuned” and so very much thanks to all of you who read, follow me, comment here and help make this blog worth writing.
