Thanksgiving, Round 1

My top two reasons for being thankful this year.
Ez meets Katie
Enjoying his feast of sweet potatoes.
That napkin kept him entertained long enough for Mom & Dad to eat dinner.
Uncle Cleo & Aunt Serena - so glad she was able to make the trek all the way from Maine!
Love these girls! (and Ez)
Auntie Serena with our lovely host, Aunt Linda.
A kiss from Ezzy's favorite cousin.
Not sure what he's staring at, but he looks petrified.

Thursday morning was spent baking apple pies (I used this recipe) and butternut squash mac & cheese (a combo of two recipes: one & two). Then we packed up and headed over to my Aunt Linda's for a huge feast. Melissa and Taylor beelined for Ezzy as soon as we got there, and they never strayed far from his sight for the rest of the evening. He was a little shy at first, but before long he was cracking up at their little games and showing off for Taylor (ie - pounding on his chest like Tarzan - my cute lil barbarian). The boys watched football, I caught up with the girls, and Ezzy was passed around and loved on from relative to relative. Food + family = Thanksgiving at its finest. Hard to believe that last year Ezzy was barely visible in my belly, and this year he's such a vibrant personality, bringing a smile to everyone's face.
