A Simple Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving 2011

Happy Thanksgiving! As i said in my facebook post, very much to be thankful for this year — our biggest little blessing being our baby boy Vincent. Couldn’t ask for anything more beautiful and perfect in life.

Grateful always for my parents and especially my Mom who is helping to watch Vincent this month. It is a lot of fun to be able to spend so much time with her after all these years living away from home.

Thankful for all the time we get to spend with our furry friend Mr. Butters, who we thought would not make it to see the birth of Vincent. The radioactive iodine treatment worked wonders and he is now a healthy kitty once again.

A burnt turkey?

So this Thanksgiving is the first i’ve spend with my mom in 10 years! It is also the first time my mom baked a “fresh” turkey and so it took a bit longer in the oven than she thought it would. She brined it which made it taste very moist and delicious.

We invited Angie over and so it was just the 5 of us, though since Vincent doesn’t eat real food yet, he took his nap right when we were ready to eat and that worked out perfectly for the adults to enjoy their meal.

Here is our complete meal! All the regular fixings. We had some pre-made bread pudding we bought from Costco for dessert — super yummy and easy as pie (but not pie, LOL)!

MM Corn!

For whatever reason, Butters has a big liking for corn on the cob. We let him lick the cob and also have a small serving of turkey.
