I remember on Bella’s first fall, before my husband deployed, we bought some foam pumpkins and stickers and decorated them. I still have them saved with all my pumpkin decor. She wasn’t even one yet so I figured that was the best I could do with an 8 month old but she had fun.
The Thanksgiving before last we spent it with family. It was a pretty awesome Thanksgiving saying that we had two of them. All the food, the pie, the flan, the more food. Let’s just say I pigged out and didn’t feel bad about it. Everything was amazing but the only part missing was me cooking. I love cooking for Thanksgiving and I haven’t cooked for a few years now. I love to prep the turkey and season it a day or two before and then waking up early to put it to cook. The amazing turkey smell. Awe! Deliciousness all over the house. I feel great when making a huge meal for my family and guests. I usually make a huge potato salad like my mom’s, yellow rice with gandules (pigeon peas), pumpkin pie, flan, stuffing, salad, rolls, and anything else I get around to making before dinner time. Let’s just say I don’t eat all day just so I can eat all I can for dinner. It’s like my day of heaven.
