Gracie, Lukie, and I hung out most of the day waiting for Daddy to be done with dialysis. While we were hanging out, I attempted to make a Paula Dean cheesecake. Alas, my cheesecake refused to bake all the way through. It did not help that Gracie and Lukie wanted my attention. EVERY. MINUTE. OF. THE. ENTIRE. DAY.

When Daddy got home, we got ourselves dressed and headed over to Grandma and Grandpa's house for Thanksgiving. Tio Freddy, Tio Joey, Tia Adriana, and Calvin were there, too, to celebrate Thanksgiving. They were waiting for us to eat, so right after we arrived, we sat down for turkey, ham, homemade mashed potatoes, stuffing, green bean casserole, biscuits and more. Lukie and Gracie were kind of interested in the food, but not quite sure about all of the new foods. Gracie took one bite of ham and declared herself done. Lukie ate a little turkey and a biscuit and decided he was done. We let them down from the table and the spent the next 15 minutes or so tearing up Grandma and Grandpa's house.

They wore sandals because it was unseasonably warm.

Biscuits? Hmmm.....

Biscuits, ham, and what???!!

Here, let me get some gravy for you!

Gracie didn't stop talking through the entire meal.
At some point, they decided they were hungry, but only for food on adults' plates. They snuck back time and time again for a biscuit, a bite of ham...Whatever they could sneak off a plate or talk someone out of.

After some dessert, Gracie and Lukie had a bath and we headed home around 7 pm. We were all tired and Gracie and Lukie went right to bed.

We had a fun Thanksgiving!


  1. New foods are always fun. Mikey and Tommy ate nothing but mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce. Oh well, they seemed happy.
    And I love Gracie's outfit!!! :)


Happy 10th Birthday!
