Thanksgiving 2010

**Three posts in an hour? What has gotten into me?***

These two pictures are the only pictures I took of Thanksgiving. We hosted the Porcaro family at our house this year (as I am restricted from traveling too far in my current condition). We had a delicious feast, complete with a Williams Sonoma brined turkey, stuffing, mashed red potatoes, raspberry pomegranate salad, green bean casserole, oven roasted rosemary vegetables, homemade rolls and pumpkin, pecan, and banana cream pies.

Here is the table with the fine china. And by fine, I mean plastic because who wants/needs to do more dishes than necessary on this day of feasting.

This was Chad's first experience carving a turkey. I didn't realize it was such a big deal to do so, but apparently it marks some sort of milestone of manhood. Jim blessed Chad with a ceremonial electric carving knife. Thank you Jim!

We had a great day! My 8 1/2 month pregnant self was exhausted and swollen at the end of the day, but it was well worth it. Thank goodness my sister is such a great cook and was willing to share her talents with us once again.

The Nursery

Our daughter has a room. It's been several months in the making, but we are thrilled with how it turned out.

Big, comfy chair. We purchased all the wooden ladybugs, flowers, butterflies, and letters from Michaels and painted them.

I made the hair accessory holder, but she has so many that one of the drawers of her dresser is full of them as well.

Her closet

Now for the last essential part...the baby.

38 Weeks

Only 2 weeks left, and we are getting sooooo excited to meet this little girl!
