Ava's 2nd Thanksgiving

Ava was able to enjoy this Thanksgiving much more than last year when she was just a tiny little one. This year she dug into her food and ate so many lima beans. She had never had limas before and she ate 2 servings! She also enjoyed turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, and green beans. I know from the pictures she has a lot on her plate and she maybe ate 1/4 of it and then add some lima beans on top of that. She was so stuffed with limas that she didn't want desert. She also napped only about 5 minutes all day so she was quite the Little Miss Sunshine.

This morning, Bethany and I hit the mall at 6 and then shopped at Wal-Mart. They were crowded, but not overwhelmingly so. Those who know me know that I won't wait in line very long even for a good deal, but the waits were pretty short and I was pleased with the gifts that I purchased. I even got to mark 3 people off my list! If I could just get the rest done...

Tomorrow we are headed up to KY to visit with my family and have Thanksgiving at Nanny and Poppy's. I have been baking today and getting ready. We have also put up 1 of our 2 Christmas trees and it looks beautiful. I will post pics of decorations next week. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and a lovely Black Friday. Have a great weekend!
