Both older boys were thankful for family, for our time together and let's just say that this momma definitely had to choke back a few tears.
Of course they were able to indulge in a little kiddie booze - nonalcoholic sparkling cider. Around here it's the holiday drink of choice. They love it.
All the cooking and prepping was appreciated by all. Nothing makes you feel appreciated like a family recognizing your efforts at making a holiday comfortable, enjoyable and relaxing.
Of course, I couldn't help snapping a quick picture of my plate. Yes, by about 1pm we were all in a tryptophan induced coma. Yes, we had round two for dinner and for the first time ever nary a complaint about eating leftovers. May the leftovers of love, gratitude and family spill over in your home too.
