<p>I hope everyone had a lovely (American) Thanksgiving with their little ones - whether they're still in the belly or resting in arms!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>We had a somewhat unusual day here with no one in from out of town and no one over but my parents.  Eliana did really well through it all and even let me cook a dessert (in the sling part of the time, sleeping in the living room another part).  She did throw up at one point but seems to be fine now.  (My 8yo was sick last night so I'm a little worried that it's a tummy bug.)</p>

<p>I know we've all had various plans and schemes about how we'd handle Thanksgiving if the babies were/weren't here yet, etc.  I hope everyone's plans turned out just perfectly!  <img alt="grouphug.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/grouphug.gif"></p>

<p>I pulled it off!!!!!!!!!!  I did the vast majority of the cooking for 11 peuple (ok, one of those was Rachel and several little kids who thought turkey was yucky, but whatever) and everything turned out great.  Also did brunch when they arrived.  It's nice that they are all at the hotel though so we'll have just a bit of time to regroup.</p>

<p>Happy Thanksgiving!</p>

<p>we managed to roast a turkey, make the stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, and green beans.  in the two days before thanksgiving, i made a pumpkin cheesecake, a pecan pie, a pumpkin pie and an apple pie.  so, a full spread for just our little family.  now, with that out of the way, the path is clear for this little one to join us!!  nothing else to plan or do (except keep the bathroom clean, lol)</p>

<p>We had a great Thanksgiving here. This was the first Thanksgiving in our house and the first time we've hosted Thanksgiving. My parents and my sister came so we didn't have a big crowd. I baked apple pie, butter sage crescent rolls and cranberry sauce the night before and butternut squash soup in the morning. My husband woke up early and started the turkey, stuffing then later he made brussels sprouts, mashed potatoes and gravy. Everything came out great. Then we built a big fire in the fireplace and sat in the living room for the rest of the night. We had an early dinner at 2pm so we were in bed early and I slept great. We even had snow flurries, which made it feel like a holiday. My son asked when he saw the snow if that meant it was Christmas.</p>

<p>My mom wouldn't take any food home, she said to keep it all here because she'll be back up to eat when I go into labor.  My husband is getting impatient and wants to start his vacation at home, his work is really supportive and stopped scheduling him for any real assignments in case he has to suddenly leave.</p>

<p>Happy Thanksgiving everyone! We had a cozy holiday too. P cooked the turkey & I did everything else. I was soooo exhausted but really didn't spend that much time in the kitchen. I didn't even bleed yesterday at all but then I went to bed and woke with the babe at 12:30 and *gushed* blood through my pad, undies and leggings. I'll be taking it veeeerry easy for the next few days. Oddly though, I haven't bled at all since that huge gush, weird.</p>
