Thanksgiving Day

Back in action this week.  Did everyone have a nice Thanksgiving weekend?  We are on day 6 of no heat on the bedroom side of our house so it's been thrilling.  Molly Anne has been sleeping in our living room so she stays warm.  One night last week it didn't get very cool at night so she slept in her room and I let her have a blanket on her for the first time.  I was a nervous wreck but she was fine with it.  I guess we got over that hump but I'm still not going to make it a habit.  We are hoping for the heat to be fixed today or tomorrow.  They had to order a part.  Always something.  

So Thanksgiving...

Molly Anne and I headed to Pawleys Island to see my brother, his wife and their girls.  My SIL's parents were also there!  Kevin stayed home with his parents and brother and kept his office open on Friday.

Traveling on Thanksgiving morning is 1,000 times easier than on the biggest travel day of the year - Wednesday before.  Surprisingly there are places open in case you need something when you're on the road.  We had one quick parking lot stop but that was it.  The rest of the trip went okay thanks to a $20 download of Frozen on my iPad that morning before we left.  I'll fill you all in later on my tips with surviving a roadtrip by yourself with a toddler. 

We arrived around 11:30am and played for awhile then Molly Anne went down for her usual afternoon nap. turkey was on the big green egg and one was in the oven.  The oven one won this year!

The view from their house is gorgeous.

We ate out on the deck like last year.  It was gorgeous weather and 75 degrees.

Talk about a lucky little turkey.  Check out her view for her first real Thanksgiving dinner!

We ate around 4pm.  She enjoyed alllll of it!  It was actually her second Thanksgiving feast in a week because Ms. Becky did one for the girls last week too.  Ha!

And some chocolate chess pie of course!

MA and Fin.  Mills was at camp!

So that was our Thanksgiving Day.  More recap this week on what we did on the long weekend!


  1. A perfect weekend! Road tripping (6hrs) with Leo tomorrow......wish me luck!

  3. What a nice Thanksgiving day! We always try to travel during nap time, and then the rest of the trip we sing toddler tunes! Ahh, the joys of motherhood!
