We had a wonderful family Thanksgiving weekend and I was especially impressed with my superstar husband who cooked an entire turkey dinner for 11 people on his own! What a guy. Everyone loved it, especially my mom who does not like cooking. She thinks she has hit the jackpot for every future holiday dinner...finally a family member who can cook and actually enjoys it!
The best part of the dinner was having everyone say what they were thankful for. My 11 year old niece decided she should emcee the event, and after she read her thanksgiving speech, she introduced us all and invited us to share what we were were giving thanks for this year. I had many reasons to be particularly thankful this year - Alan's great cooking, my parents for being so generous in letting us stay at their house for 2 whole months, being in Fredericton and getting to spend so much time with family and most of all my two healthy, wonderful little boys. When Caleb's turn came around he jumped up and said 'My name is Caleb Austin Jeffries and I'm thankful for my good guy/bad guy detector (see below) and for my baby brother'. The order of his priorities were clear.
Caleb has been 'inventing' up a storm these days. He heads into my dad's workshop and the two of them work away on making Caleb's 'designs' come to life. He has also reached a major milestone this week - riding a bike without training wheels. He is so proud as he whizzes my us. I can't believe how quickly he is growing up.
