On Saturday we will celebrate amongst our Boston friends and family with a Sophie the Giraffe themed party (of course); it has been so much fun to prepare for the day and I can't wait to have everyone over to eat, sing and celebrate this awesome year. It really, truly takes a village to raise a child, and the party will be a reflection of all of the people that have helped us get to where we are through babysitting, advice, whispered road trips with a sleeping baby, early dinners to accommodate Maddie, everything that has helped us to be the confident parents that we are today. To all of you: THANK YOU; we could not have done it without you, and Maddie is a lucky kid to have so many people to love and care for her.
Sunday morning we fly out to Reno to see our West Coast family and celebrate with them and do Thanksgiving together. I have not been to Reno for Thanksgiving since I moved to Boston seven years ago, so I am really looking forward to it. Watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade with my own mama is long overdue, and I am excited that Maddie gets to see her Grandma while eating her first turkey dinner!
|So excited for Thanksgiving with Grandma!|
