I went to her classroom after and the two of us enjoyed a Thanksgiving feast together.
Watching the slide show reminded me of just two years ago when I was at Ellie's 1st grade performance. It also reminded me of what she was thankful for:
I accepted my "mother of the year" award shortly after her picture debut.
Pilgrim #1 with mom two years ago.
I can't believe how fast my kids are growing up on me. Ellie's 1st grade performance feels like last week.
These two were so little two years ago. Just look at all of those chubby cheeks!
I said -
"Ad - I don't think pilgrims wore stuff like that and you are supposed to look like a pilgrim."
"Mom - the only reason they didn't is because they didn't have a choice. If pilgrims had a silver sparkle skirt they would have chosen it over black pants too."
How am I supposed to argue with that logic? So I didn't. I replied "sliver sparkle skirt it is!" And she was one stylish little pilgrim.
I took countless pictures of her so that I wouldn't forget our fun morning together.
Until I started getting poses like this.
That's when I know picture taking time is over. :)
If you are traveling, be safe. I'll be popping in tomorrow with a fun giveaway, but until then happy Thanksgiving week everyone!
