Day 27: The secret to a successful Thanksgiving.

Super hot gravy.

Oh, and spending it with these turkeys:

Max had a fantastic first Thanksgiving! He got to meet some new family members, he got passed around like a little football and he napped like he ate 5 pounds of turkey.

A snapshot of our day:


Baked brie with cranberry chutney
Roasted figs stuffed with blue cheese and wrapped with prosciutto
White bean and bacon soup
Sausage, fennel, apricot and cranberry stuffing
Bacon brussels sprouts
Mashed potatoes
Sweet potatoes
Cranberry sauce

And lots and lots of cocktails and wine, of course.

Max was knocked out from just getting dressed!

figs have got to be the most beautiful fruit

there's nothing like a soup with BACON as one of the two main ingredients

Max and his great grandfather…they are 94 years apart in age!

I'm not sure which of these two grandparents want to get their hands on Max more.

there's nothing like a little nap after a long day

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.

I am so very grateful for my wonderful family, and that Max is surrounded by so much love.
