blessed with turkey and pie.

Since we are leaving on our
Disney World trip tomorrow,
(we fly out Thanksgiving Day morning
with my dad and brother
and my other brother and his kids are meeting us there)
we weren't planning on making/eating Thanksgiving dinner this year.

But at breakfast time this morning,
Ryan's mom shows up
armed with a turkey
and an entire Thanksgiving dinner for us!


She popped the turkey in the oven
and then came back at lunchtime to finish it all up
complete with pumpkin pie!

Ryan came home for lunch
and we all ate until we were stuffed :)
It was SO yummy.

Thank you Trudy, what a blessing!

And now,
I can't put it off any longer,
I must go pack...

Happy Thanksgiving, Erin! I know it will be bittersweet this year without your precious mom, but hopefully many lasting memories will happen in Disney! One year, as a child, my family spent Thanksgiving a Disney World and we ate turkey out of a styrofoam tray in "America" in EPCOT. We were miserable without our extended family, but you'll have yours with you! Here's to early turkey today and family with you tomorrow!
