Thanksgiving 2009

As expected, Mads was the star of the Thanksgiving show:

This is my contribution to the meal. It's a pumpkin-gingerbread-trifle and it feeds about 20, haha.

Mads lost her clothes quickly after the meal:

Can you find Jeffrey? Funny guy.

My cousin, Haili, is pregnant with her first. She's 20 weeks and everyone at Thanksgiving was buzzing because she had just found out that it's a boy (she wanted a boy). During prayer, Daddy said something about "yadda yadda and protect these new babies coming..." Babies? How many is Haili having? A whole litter? I glanced at Mum who gave me an oogly eye, then to Tammy who had a big, fat smirk on her face. Weird. Twenty-seven seconds after saying Amen, Daddy says, "So do you girls have any ideas on names yet?" Plural again. Is he losing it? What girls? I threw another glance at Mum, she was no help whatsoever, so back to Tammy who said, "You might as well just tell everyone now... Aimee."

It's true. I'm 12 weeks pregnant and it was a deep, dark secret until Thanksgiving dinner. Now the whole world knows.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Congrats! Mine are 20 months apart (2.5 yrs and 11 months) and they just started playing together. It's amazing. After the first few months, you'll love having them so close. Be well.
