Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving was very low-key this year and that's just the way we like it!

Chris' Dad came to visit and to spend the holiday with us. Other than a trip to the Bass Pro Shop and Home Depot on Black Friday, we just hung around the house together. Played a few games, watched movies, and ate good food. The weather was even gorgeous- 65 degrees and sunny!

For dinner, we kept it simple with a homemade chicken pot pie, Parker house rolls (which totally flopped), roasted Brussels sprouts and derby pie. Salem ate an entire (baby) bowl of chicken pot pie. He was in LOVE. And the remainder of the leftovers (a.k.a. what Salem didn't eat) were cleared out by dinner the next night. Delicious!

My favorite memory from this holiday was this little leaf-

Colin was asked what he was thankful for to have it written on the back of his leaf. He said 'Elmo' because his little brother likes Elmo. So thankful to have such a sweet, big brother!
