As usual, we went to my parents for Thanksgiving. They are rather lucky in the respect that they don't have to share us for most holidays, as Conrad's family lives on the other side of the world. But of course, this is not lucky for us or for our girls, as another set of Grandparents and Aunts and Uncles around on a regular basis would add immensly to thier lives!
Maybe not everyone feels this way...family relationships can be difficult at worst and complicatedm at best, but in my opionion: worth it. No one loves your children like your parents. And as children grow up, it seems like Grandparents have insight and maybe distance that allows them to be hubs of wisdom for our kids. Yes, I guess I feel pretty blessed to have grown up with all four of my grandparents close by. Not to mention all of the wonderful aunts and uncles who were like parents to Jona and I.
Okay, I guess that was my thanksgiving thankfulness paragraph! Back to the post at hand. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and we even trimmed our Christmas tree the weekend before since we are always out of town that weekend. Isabelle is having a hard time keeping straight all of the holidays she has lately been experiencing, so she currently calls the Christmas Tree her "Trick Or Tree."
