We obviously have so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. Liam is doing so well and I'm so happy he is with us this Thanksgiving, even if he is still in the NICU.
Noah just loved watching the Thanksgiving Day Parade, his favorite part was the Spiderman segment! I'm pretty sure he would freak if he would see Spiderman Live in NYC. We've had to rewind that part of the parade many times, thank goodness for DVR.
Clint and I were cooking up a storm. We made green bean casserole, ambrosia salad, corn casserole and roasted garlic corn grits. Oh and pumpkin spice cupcakes! The best thing was the corn casserole and it was incredibly easy! The corn grits came in a very close second. I can't wait to cook it all again for Christmas because it was delish.
At my parents house, Noah read the "My Brother Is A Preemie" book to everyone. It was adorable. I'm so glad we taped it because once I watched it I actually was brought to tears. It was so sweet.
We make Turkey Oreos with the kids and that was a lot of fun. I found the idea on Pinterest and I think the kids liked making a little craft.
We of course made a trip to the NICU on Thanksgiving. My sister Robin and my dad came along with Clint and I. Robin hasn't seen Liam probably in a month possibly so he was much bigger this go round! She was even able to change his diaper.
I can't wait till next Thanksgiving when Liam is home and able to spend it with all of his family!
