This year has been full of a lot of firsts...
First plane ride...
First camping trip...
First time as part of a family. :)
Today Maddie experienced another first...
Her first Thanksgiving dinner.
Maddie's preschool held their annual family Thanksgiving dinner at the center. They jammed way too many people into a room the size of my living room. We were huddled around little round tables, sitting on preschool sized chairs - the adults with their knees up to their ears...the kids giddy with excitement over the cherry pie in the middle of the table.
Maddie wasn't quite sure what to make of all the food at first. She kept eyeing the pie...pointing to it now and then and making the 'wait' motion with her hands.
'Yea, honey...just wait. You can eat some when you're done.'
Finally, the food arrived and Maddie dug in. She enjoyed just about everything, but the green bean casserole (absolute heresy, I say!)...but even snarfed that down at the promise of the precious cherry pie.
Finally, she finished, but before we could dig into the pie, the teacher had the kids stand up and sing a cute song about Thanksgiving. I frantically tried digging my camera out of my coat pocket, but didn't get to it in time...sorry.
But I did get some pics of Maddie enjoying her dinner.
Maddie never did get her cherry pie. She said she needed to go 'potty' right after her song was over...and by the time we got back they had cleared everything off our table.
She was heart-broken.
We're going to Shad's cousin's house for Thanksgiving dinner and I'm supposed to bring dessert.
I guess I know what I'll be bringing this year.
