Yesterday, we went over to my in-laws’ house for Thanksgiving with Michael’s family. His aunt, uncle, grandfather, cousins, sisters, parents… quite a crowd. And of course, our beloved nephew, Brendan. It was fun.
The best part when we do this every year is that we don’t have turkey again–instead, we eat something else fabulous. My mother-in-law made beef and cabbage in the crockpot, as well as a Mexican lasagna (which was delish!). Plus, we had all of the snacks and desserts we could bear.
I was so. full. Worse than actual Thanksgiving!
Several pics from the day:
Cousins–Michael and his two sisters, and two of his cousins.
Brendan in his new hat. Too damn cute.
Cristina and me, together again (see first Thanksgiving post)–haha
Ladies! Only Michael’s mom is missing.
Brendan with his “woobie,” and his favorite book (Brown Bear)
Uncle Michael reading Brendan’s book to him. Love it.
Looking at Uncle Michael. Awww.
Aside from not wanting to go back to work and normal life, I really do need this weekend to end so I can go back to eating normally. My lord.
And this is only the beginning of the holiday eating! Yikes.
AboutI'm Heather. I'm 31 and have been married to Michael for five years. Together, we have two beautiful little girls we love more than anything, and a miniature dachshund who drives us crazy. I'm a full-time working mom who has very little time for my own "stuff" these days, like home improvement, cooking/baking, cake decorating, and photography. Despite the team not making the playoffs since 1999, I'm STILL a Buffalo Bills fan, which I think speaks to my loyalty AND sense of humor. I can't wait to pick up the pace with travel again some day... you know, when we're done being ruled by tiny fists. Welcome to my blog.
