We actually celebrated Thanksgiving twice this year – once with each family! My in-laws hosted the weekend before Thanksgiving, which was a good test run on how L would eat.

On Thursday, we traveled to Virginia for Thanksgiving with my family. We were all “this is going to be a great day” after L slept for 3 hours on the way there.
