Heather didn’t have the greatest Thanksgiving – a migraine headache kept her laid up in bed from the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade through the Lady Gaga Special. It wasn’t a total wash though. She was able to get down a piece of pumpkin pie… it IS Thanksgiving, after all.
That left Annie and me to put away the biggest meal of the year with my parents and sister’s family. Annie made me proud. Here is her official scorecard:
Bread roll – Polished off quickly and with great enthusiasm.
Turkey – Strangely disinterested.
Mashed potatoes – Big fan. Ate even faster than the roll!
Cranberry – Didn’t like to eat, but found it hilarious to feed to her old man.
Creamed Sweet Potatoes – Annie’s favorite food ever, it seemed. She liked it so much some ended up in her hair.
Pumpkin Pie – Looooved. Almost finished off an adult sized slice even after her giant meal!
All in all I would say Annie “won” at Thanksgiving this year. She says as much in this pumpkin pie packed video:
Here’s hoping Heather is able to join Annie in winning next year too. How was your Thanksgiving? (Or Thursday if you’re not Americans?)
OMG, I love her!!
I had a very lovely Thursday here in Australia, and enjoyed reading about all of your traditions, especially the food!
Gobble, gobble! She’s so adorable. I want to eat her cheeks! So sorry Heather had to miss out. Here’s hoping she can beat everyone to leftovers tomorrow and that she’s feeling up to devouring them!
*Gasp!* Can it be. . .are Annie’s curls losing their, curliness? ): I’ve noticed in the past few videos it seems that her hair just isn’t as Annie curly anymore! What’s going on??
And feel better soon Heather!
I sure can sympathize with migraines….now that I’m able to take a prescription for it, it helps. I HATE having to take it but it’s better than being in bed all day trying to manage 3 little (ish) ones. Hope everyone is feeling good today!!

Annie really looks cute at the video she talks a lot for a little girl.
My Thursday was good – my dress for my office Christmas party arrived just in time, and I donated blood platelets through Canadian Blood Services.
Congratulations on the big win Annie! Hope that Heather feels better soon and that the rest of the trip is migraine free. Take care.
I just wanna squeeze her!
I am seriously not sure how it is even possible that Annie is this cute. HOW?
I hosted my first Thanksgiving dinner here in South Africa. I’m getting married to an American next year so figured I should have one TG under my belt before I get hitched!
As we were saying what we were Thankful for (the health of my nephew, who was born at 27 weeks but is doing so well now, at 18 months), my brother mentioned Baby Reef – he’s a little South African boy who is very ill. He is currently in LA Childrens Hospital getting treatment for Graft vs Host Disease after a bone marrow transplant to help him kick Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. His parents had to put down a $100k deposit for the initial treatment is LACH and the total cost for his 2-year rehab will be $500k on top of their living expenses while in the US. If you could perhaps mention this little boy on your site to spread the word and help with fundraising, it would be awesome!
