I know I'm a week late, but how was everyone's Thanksgiving? Hopefully as fabulous as mine! While I certainly missed having all my siblings here this year, it was nice that Matt could fill in and carry out all the usual Thanksgiving traditions with me. Like running the famous Dana Point Turkey Trot! He's such a good sport. I pulled him out of bed bright and early and made him head down to the harbor in the cold with me to run a quick 5K. And as painful as it was, we were both really glad we did it so we could justify the TWO Thanksgiving dinners we'd be eating later that day!
After the run we cleaned ourselves up and headed down to San Clemente for Turkey Dinner #1 with all the Messicks. The food was incredible as always. I can never get enough of Grandma's candied yams, Aunt Christy's green bean casserole, and my Mom's delicious green salad. YUM! But what I loved even more than the food was introducing Matt to everyone and later having them come up and whisper in my ear "He's so HOT!" I know! I have great taste. :)
Once we'd stuffed ourselves to the maximum, Matt and I snuck out to meet up with the Laidlaw crew at his aunt's house in Corona for Turkey Dinner #2! We stayed just long enough for a few more bites of turkey, some chit chat and LOTS of pumpkin pie, before quietly sneaking out to spend the rest of the night cuddled up to a fire and some Clippers basketball. My favorite!
All in all I'd have to say it was a pretty fantastic Thanksgiving day. Only thing that could have made it better? Sharing it all with my Little D of course! Thank goodness he'll be here for Christmas. Hurry up baby! Auntie Aubrey misses you.
