Thanksgiving had a double special meaning for us this year as it was the 1 year anniversary of the week we found out we were having a baby! That’s right a baby. We didn’t see our elusive little baby b on the first ultrasound. On the night before Thanksgiving we announced to my mom that we were pregnant and the next day we told the rest of my family by giving my grandparent’s a new Christmas ornament.
Later that week we shared the news with Jon’s side of the family. A perfect weekend for sure.
And 2 weeks later we discovered tiny baby #2.
This was our year to go to my family’s Thanksgiving celebration, so on Wednesday night we packed up the car and headed to my mom’s. This wasn’t technically the twin’s first time to go to Grandma’s house, but it was the first time that they stayed for very long. Bright and early Thursday morning we were up cooking, loving on the babies and getting everything ready to go over to my grandparent’s house.
For as far back as I can remember, we’ve gone to my grandpa and grandma’s for Thanksgiving Day. While the food is amazing, it’s really not about the food (well, okay, it’s a little about the food). I’m just so thankful that I still get to go to my Grandparent’s house every year. Just being in their home is so special to me. I was smitten at getting to take the twin’s this year, and I hope we’ll go for many years to come.
Later in the week we stopped by my Aunt Terri’s to see my dad and his family. We don’t see them very often, so it was great to introduce the twins to everyone and of course great to see my dad. So much to be thankful for.
