So, I am trying to catch up to the present and I thought I would definitely have had it done by the end of January but it's February and here I am writing about Thanksgiving! This is the story of my life..always trying to catch up because I always have so much going on! I totally give props to all those working mamas out there who keep up with their blogging..Camila, KK, Linds (I'm counting Linds too even though she only works a couple of days a week because it's still bringing home a quarter of the bacon and I'm bringing home no bacon-just frying it for breakfast occasionally.)
Ok, back to Thanksgiving in Round Rock, TX with the Price Family!! So, for those of you who do not know, I am adopted. No I'm not really adopted but kind of adopted by my step-dad, Ted Price, who is really my dad but we never made it "legal" just because Dustin and I could never agree when to do it and my mom wanted both of us to do it at the same time. So I am 1/2 Price at heart because that is who raised me..my mom and my step-dad. (There I go again, getting off subject.) I'm a Harden now so I guess it doesn't matter anymore..who cares about last names..family is so much deeper than that..right?
Thanksgiving in Round Rock was fabulous because everyone was there! I will name them in pictures later in the blog so you can put a face to a name! It was so good to see my Grandma even though she was VERY ready to get the heck out of there right when we were trying to take the family picture. Oh my, do I have some stories to tell you about Grandma but that will have to be another post. Very few of our family pictures ever turn out because there is always someone looking off, picking their nose, frowning, etc. Now we have babies involved so it has gotten much harder to actually get a good one!
Grandma kept trying to leave every time the picture was about to be taken so we were literally pushing on her legs so she would not take of running towards the door. She has dementia so she does some odd things and one of them is that when she is ready to go then she is READY TO GO. What can you do? When I am 85 years old I want to be able to to do what I want when I want too!
Mom cooked the best dressing I have every tasted in my life! It was moist but not too moist and had just the right amount of everything in it! She is the best cook I have ever met and I aspire to be as good as her one day even though I am sure it probably won't happen because I think she enjoys it much more than I do. She loved seeing her three grand babies all in one place and they LOVE her! Annika is the oldest at 16 months and if Nonna is around she does not care a thing about anyone else. It's hilarious because she just crawls around the house saying "Nonna, Nonna, Nonna", and then Nonna finds her and picks her up and then she's the happiest girl in the world. My sister-in-law and Annika's mom, Rebecca, took a photo shoot of Annika, Asher, and Luke and it was hilarious because Luke is the youngest and he could not focus on ANYTHING so he looks wall-eyed (is this a word?) in every picture!!
I wish we lived closer to my fam..maybe one day...
We also drove down to NB for a day to see Jeff's dad and his side of the family. We got to visit with and introduce Luke to his Memaw, Don, Aunt Linda, Aunt Cinda, Leslie, Brandi, and Kari. We had a great Thanksgiving and can't wait to have many many many more with our little boy LUKE!
