i hope you had a really nice thanksgiving with loved ones wherever you were! we were here in the city for ours and kept as much of the weekend low key as we could because i was/am going through all that fun early false labor stuff. i got out of my pjs like twice all weekend. ;)

throughout the week, during our meals together at the table, we would take turns holding up our fist and then counting with our fingers 5 things we were thankful for. i was so proud of E and S! they’d remind us it was time to play the five things game whenever we’d sit down and always come up with such unique and sweet things they were thankful for.  everything from listing our every family and extended family member, to things like the eiffel tower in paris to snow to their scooters to the orchestra! i’m sure thankful for them.

also super thankful josh loves to take the lead in the kitchen, especially when it comes to our bigger holiday meals.  i can handle the smaller dishes and desserts, but i don’t know the first thing about cooking a turkey and that doesn’t sound fun to me whatsoever.  eleanor helped josh prep and baste our turkey this year. i was impressed she was willing to get her hands all slimy and greased up. she tends to hate even getting a touch of paint on her hands, so it was a big deal!

a few photos from the weekend…

^^^this cute face helped me make kelsey’s sweet potato pumpkin rolls and did almost every step by himself! “i do it by my OWN self!” he always says. he’s a very determined  and independent little guy and he has taught me a lot about patience the last several months. i’m really proud of him.^^^

^^^not as pretty as kelsey’s but so delicious just the same!^^^

^^^i got a pedicure over the weekend so i could welcome baby into the world with nice looking painted toe nails and eleanor came with me. she requested blue and purple toe nail polish alternating on each toe. and she got the cutest little flowers painted on her big toes. it’s been a big deal the past few days at our house.^^^

^^^the turkey is proudly hanging on our front door! i think we’ll keep him there throughout the year as long as he’ll stick. it’s a nice reminder every time i see him of my many blessings.^

    hi Davis Family!

    Looks you guys had a lot of fun preparing for thanksgiving. It’s so great to see when you, josh and kids are in the kitchen cooking together, that’s so awww.
    There’s a lot of things we’re thankful for and we should remember of that not only in thanksgiving day :)

Oh thanksgiving seams to be such a wonderful day in the US… your faces were all glowing and so happy… I guess this time of the year is always welcome and wonderful, but especially to your family, it will be an excited time! I hope, everything is fine with you and also I hope, you enjoy every bite of it!

    it looks incredible- yall are such a sweet family! A pedicure is always on my must haves before delivery day, and last time I literally got it done an hour beforehand, nothing like waiting til the last minute. I don’t know if you kids ever fight or bicker with each other, but mine do. And every time they start I have them list five things about the other person they are thankful for- it’s really sweet and pretty funny the things they come up with, but then off they go, friends again!

    There was something so sweat and heartwarming about this post. I think it was how authentic everything was. Oh! And I love that your husband cooks the turkey.

  27. Annette

    I’m in love with the picture of you kneading the dough for the pie. Wish I had gotten a picture at that angle of my bump. It took me back to when I had to stand sideways in my kitchen because my bump did not allow me near the counter! Happy Thanksgiving to the Davis family and I wish you a very merry end of your pregnancy!

  28. Kate

    What a fun holiday (it’s one of my personal favorites)! I love that you involved the little ones in the cooking, Samson is too cute! And his rolls look amazing, maybe he’ll be a chef someday? :)

    Happy holidays!

    Your pjs are so cute! Where are they from?

    God bless your children, they’re adorable

  34. Leanne

    I bet that meal tasted a billion times better to Eleanor and Samson because they helped make it! So sweet.

    I think it’s so beautiful how you appreciate the things that make each child unique — Samson’s independence, Eleanor’s admiration of her painted toes! It shows them how important embracing their individuality is — something we need more of in this world. Great photos, as always:)
