Kennedy's First Thanksgiving

Kennedy was so excited to celebrate Thanksgiving that she woke up at 3:45 yesterday morning.  That made for a long day, with few naps.  I could not have asked for a better day though.  Kennedy and I have both talked about what we're thankful for over the past few weeks.  Most of all, Marlon and I are thankful for Kennedy.  She is truly a dream come true and the start of our family.  She is what we've dreamed of for many years.  We always talked about holidays with kids, and how they would be so much better - and they are.  We're also thankful for our family and friends who have been so supportive this year.  We have experienced some of the most wonderful and also challenging things all at once this year, and we sincerely appreciate everyone's support. 

Kennedy also wanted me to let all of the readers know that even though she's thankful for her piggies, hair bows, clothes, toys and Grandma's Visa - she's most thankful for her mommy and daddy!  She knows Mommy and Daddy love her more than anything and would do anything for her. 

Here's some photos from Kennedy's First Thanksgiving.  We spent a quiet day at home with my mom and mother-in-law.  Kennedy enjoyed the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, and spent the day eating her favorite foods. 

Toast and the Macy's Parade, what more can a girl ask for?

Look Mommy!!  Snoopy!!

 What's that mama?

I found another piece of toast.

Grandma, look at my feetsies.

Seriously, these people are boring.

Hey Grandma, can I have your credit card?  I need to order these skinny jeans.

Hey mom, how's lunch coming?

Daddy stop tickling me!

Yummmm!  Sweet potatoes!

Hi Grammy!  Whatcha drinking?

I want to help cook the turkey daddy!
Hey Grandma, look at my toy.

 I'm going to eat this toy until dinner is done.

Grandma knew where the Cheerios are!

Thanks for cooking all the good food daddy!

Look at my ball Grammy.

Almost time to eat!  I should have napped, I'm getting sleepy.

But I'm really excited to eat!

Make it snappy mom! I'm starving!

More gravy please?


  1. Those hair bows are so precious! Do you make them or buy? My Evie just does one pony tail on top of her head, but I think she could definitely try a bow in it. Happy Thanksgiving from Canada! We celebrated because my husband works for an American company and got a couple days off. Woo Hoo!

  2. Those were actually made by a friend of mine. I make most of hers though, but buy them from time to time.

  3. the pictures are beyond adorable!!! Love the bows, bibs, clothes!
