Today was Thanksgiving and we had a very nice day. Eva and Allison and I watched the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. And we got Rick Rolled like the rest of you. That was pretty funny too.
Eva had a very pretty purple velvet dress that her Mimi got her, from Macy’s ironically enough. We listened to Arlo Guthrie’s Alice’s Restaurant at noon on WROR as is the Thanksgiving Day tradition. We were visited by my grandparents on my Dad’s side and shared our meal with Erik’s parents Bonnie and Howard. Bonnie and Howard brought Eva a penguin that was just about as large as she. It is a Gund too and so it is wonderfully soft and squishy. To see Eva hug the penguin is a sight to behold. She just gets enveloped into the penguin.
We had a delicious dinner courtesy of my sister Tara. She got the whole thing from Whole Foods. My father and I got the drumsticks because that is the part that we like the best. The rest of the meal included all the traditional fixings and they were also very tasty.
Eva got to spend time with Aunt Shelby as well. She has a great time with Shelby too, you should see how she lights up and laughs around her. They have so much fun. My mom is going to be in trouble when she says “Where’s Aunt Shelby?” to Eva and Aunt Shelby is nowhere around. Eventually Eva is going to understand what that means and go in search for her and when she cannot find her and has a meltdown then that will be the last time she says that.
For dessert we had apple pie, pumpkin pudding pie, ice cream, cheesecake and of course the Pumpkin Pie, Gingerbread, White Chocolate, Caramel Ice Cream. That ice cream was delicious. I still have no name for it but I would certainly get it again as it tasted very much like pumpkin pie.
Later tonight we went to my Uncle Richard’s house for more dessert and to visit with my Grandparent’s on my Mom’s side. It was a nice day and we were able to see much of our family. Tomorrow we go and visit Allison’s family too.
