A Thankful Thanksgiving

This year we spent Thanksgiving with Eric's family at the beach. They have a house at the Outer Banks (one of the main reasons I married him) and so we get to go a few times a year. I never get over how beautiful it is there. It's so nice to have a getaway every once in a while, and to be able to spend time with family at the same time is just the best. It was easy to think about how thankful I am for my life, my family, and too many blessings to count.

Here's the chocolate cheesecake I made just before it went in the oven. I wanted to take a picture of it after taking it out of the pan on Thanksgiving, but it got eaten too quickly!

Playing basketball in the driveway with Daddy.

Busy digging a hole. It was in the 70s on Thanksgiving day and we had a great time on the beach. (Those three crazy people you see in the water back there are Patrick, Greg, and their friend Joey. The water was probably about 50˚.)

Sawyer and I walked down to the water's edge and he was so excited to see the waves come up. He kept saying "Comes! Comes!" Here it comes...

...and then the water arrived. Whoa! It was cold!

Sawyer: "This is not nearly as much fun as I thought it would be."

Playing catch with Grandpa and Uncle Greg. Sawyer calls Grandpa "Pa Pa", an endearment that lately has inexplicably morphed into "Poo Poo". You can imagine the fun we had with that.


  1. What a great Thanksgiving! The beach always makes me happy and grateful for such a beautiful world.

    This is off topic, but one of my favorite blogs,, is having daily give aways. A fair amount of the stuff is geared for the cool mom type and I keep thinking of you. I thought you might want to check it out.

  2. Thanks Katy, that is a really cool blog! And I'm flattered that you think of me as a cool mom. Chances are, my kid(s) never will.


Give it to me straight!
