My Plate Was Fifty Percent Mashed Potatoes

Happy Day After Thanksgiving, y'all!

Today is the day of leftovers and shopping and leftovers. How was your food? Was it amazing? Mine was amazing. My favorite part of Thanksgiving is the sides. My meat to sides ratio was a little backwards but I was thrilled with my decisions. Our Thanksgiving Day was a little unconventional because or our poor little sick baby. We woke up and watched the parade while I made Sweet Potato Souffle (That part is pretty typical) but then I left my husband and my baby girl at home while I went to be with my family. We knew she didn't have a whole days worth of energy in her to play with her cousins so I headed out to Cypress while Grant and Ellie stayed home. It felt weird not to have them there but I was so thankful for my husband and his willingness to take one for the team.

Thankfully, after Ellie's nap, we spoke on the phone and decided the 2 of them should venture out and have dinner with the rest of us. Ellie was beyond ecstatic to see her cousins and it really perked her up. And I was glad to have my man and my girl with the rest of my family.

This morning, Ellie woke up at 9:30am (PRAISE THE GOOD LORD) and did not have a fever! I'm crossing my fingers and wishing upon a star and also PRAYING THAT THIS STICKS. Cause ya know what? MOMMY IS DONE WITH THE FEVER TIMES. DONE.

I didn't take many pictures yesterday at my parent's house, but I did document the following to have for posterity's sake:

I'd like to start off by saying that my mom is organized, but my favorite kind of organized. She's organized but also laid back. That being said, I simply had to take a photo of this markerboard on the back side of her pantry door. The woman has it together, folks. The oven schedule is serious business.

I got a lot of questions about the upstairs/downstairs notes. My parents house has a very small little kitchenette on the 2nd floor and there is a small oven. It comes in very handy on big holidays!

Sometimes Mom likes to get her craft on. Cute little place cards.

Everything was beautiful!

So now it's the day after Thanksgiving, which thrills my heart because CHRISTMAS TIME IS HERE!!!!

Let the decorating begin!
