I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving! We certainly did! We were able to visit with family members in three different states and enjoyed 3 big meals! Good thing family meals are calorie free in my book!
This was the 2nd Thanksgiving without my Mom. She was missed but I was glad that I got through the day remembering her but not grieving. It was strange but I didn't get overly emotional until my ride home on Monday night after visiting my Dad. It suddenly hit me that I had spent time with my Dad, my aunt (who's like a second mom to me), and my in laws... all the parent figures. It's kind of a hard feeling to express. It's a thought that caught me off guard and hit me like a ton of bricks. Sometimes life is just depressing.
On a positive note, Abby had a blast visiting everyone. We even got a chance to take her to this awesome place, Edaville Railroad. She got a chance to ride on a 'choo choo' and to meet Santa (which didn't go as well as I hoped). She even ate her first lollipop, which was too stinkin' cute! After the first taste, she paused and looked at me before letting out a great big 'MMMMM'.
