Today we celebrated thanksgiving weekend. First, a trip to my sister where my niece showered Emily with affection. It really is the best thing in the world. I would always remember my niece’s reaction when she saw baby “enemy” (she pronounced Emily as “enemy”) on a video chat and my niece said “wow” under her breath. Ever since then, she constantly asks for baby Emily - to hold her, spend time with her. She adores her! My brother in law also always cooked amazing meal - roast beef, and the perfect chicken. I am quite inspired to make whole chicken after our lunch.
In the evening, we went to my husband’s brother’s place - where everyone brought a dish. Where to even start, we had some Chinese food, turkey, perogies and appies. We had a great time catching up with families we haven’t seen in awhile. And thankful for the love they shower to Emily.
I want to thank family, friends near and far as I feel so blessed to have wonderful people around me. I can’t help but feel overjoyed as well that this thanksgiving is my daughter’s first thanksgiving - it truly is life changing that though thanksgiving happen every year, this year is all the more special because she is in our lives. I pray for more moments such as this. Thank you. Meegwetch.
