We had a great Thanksgiving this year. It was just the five of us at home. We had cooked our first turkey last year (I should say Lance did), and the kids were so excited to do it again and help us make everything. They helped peel potatoes, pour and mix ingredients--they helped from the beginning to the end. It was so fun to make everything together and sit down and enjoy what we had all done. It was a slow, quiet day--really nice. I am grateful for my incredible husband and the father he is and I am grateful for my children who are spunky and always pleasantly surprise me.
