We had a small but very relaxing Thanksgiving at our house this year. Just Ian, Kim and the kids unfortunately. Casey and Rob should have been here, but Kiera had a stomach bug they didn't want to share with us. Our hearts were a little heavy - missing our Michigan family - and wishing we were with them. But holiday traveling with young kids is the opposite of relaxing! And boy did I have fun cooking and prepping.
Kim and I are both over-feeders - we had enough food even without the delicious-ness Casey was going to supply.
To honor a holiday tradition at Oma's house, the kids enjoyed sparkling cider in real wine glasses.
Mike and I truly enjoyed our first Thanksgiving in the "new" or not so new house (that we purchased two and a half years ago!). But we're already making plans for Thanksgiving in Michigan next year!
