And we reenacted the picture of the girls on the seal from last year...not as a surprise to anyone, but Eleanor's hair looks exactly the same because in both pictures she was going through a "I don't want to put anything in my hair so it's always in my eyes" phase.
We had a delicious Thanksgiving dinner, watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, and sat around the firepit outside. Eleanor and Jane even got to open an early Christmas gift. It was a great time with great family.
Then it was off to Leesburg for the weekend where we played lots of Monopoly, Stoneage, and ate more delicious food! Chris and Uncle Benny carved the turkey this year and did a wonderful job despite their professed limited experience.
It really was a great weekend to be outside! The day we left Shug came over in the morning with donuts. Eleanor picked out a pink sprinkle donut and was in heaven! Plus they were matchy-matchy in red.
I was also able to go to one of Lauren's dress fittings as I had not yet seen her dress on and boy was it exciting for me! Eleanor, too, enjoyed the process because there were "so many Eleanors, so many grandmas" in the mirrors.
Happy Thanksgiving to all and I know at least in our house we are so excited for "the most wonderful time of the year!"
