It keeps getting better

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday and I hope everyone else did as well.

I got to wear my new sweater, for that I was thankful. I didn't overeat and desert did not touch my lips, for this I am thankful.

But today, oh today. Today is Prime Rib lunch on the "mothership", aka: Gran-T and Mikey's. Today it is on. I paced myself yesterday, a small serving of a little of this, a little of that.

Not today.

Prime rib with creamy horseradish, PW's spicy mac and cheese, creamed spinach, roasted sweet potatoes and onion, feta salad, and homemade rolls. This is my all time favorite meal in the entire whole wide world and all of eternity.

Don't get me wrong, the traditional T-day meal yesterday was nice and a lovely way to start of of the holiday season, but it isn't worth gorging on. Today's meal is worth getting sick over.

Can y'all tell my big butt is super excited!!!

On another note, my cousin who has been trying and trying for a baby had in vitro (I mentioned several posts ago) and is pregnant with TWINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Talk about this being an extra special Thanksgiving! We are all giddy with the thought of not one but two precious babes joining our ever growing family.
Thanks for all of y'alls prayers for her when requested. It obviously worked double.

I also finally got to meet my cousin's new baby girl, Jane. And boy is she a cutie. Tess thought she was pretty cool, but y'all should of seen my Brammy. He was all over that baby, kept asking to hold her, patting her, kissing her, talking in his weird high pitched baby voice. It was darling. If that didn't convince Hubby that we need another bambino, then I don't know what else would.

Tomorrow Gran-T and I are taking Bram to see the "Polar Express" at the Fort Worth Children's Museum. Another fun day. Love the holidays!!!!

Prime Rib lunches are EXACTLY the reason we pace ourselves on other days. Sounds DELICIOUS!
