Hi! I hope everyone who celebrated had a lovely Thanksgiving! Ours was a bit different this year… we were all a bit sick, but it was no less special, memorable, and fun!
I spent the day before Thanksgiving fulfilling challah orders and even managed to bake one for us to bring to Thanksgiving dinner at my parents’ house! I made two loaves of cinnamon raisin, one loaf of cheddar jalapeño, and one with sun-dried tomato and feta. Man do I love baking.
Sadie had been sick earlier in the week with a fever, and then Jimmy and I caught a cold mid-week, and Sadie woke up with it on Thanksgiving. We visited my in-laws and Sadie had a ball running all around their house.
Her little outfit says “thankful for today” and it was given to us from our friends from church Miss Laura and Mr. Dave at Sadie’s baby shower and I’ve literally been dreaming of her wearing it since that day in July 2018!
It was as adorable on her as I thought it would be!
Sadie played her little heart out and then we drove across Pittsburgh to my parents’ house and she took a turn for the worse with her cold. She had a runny nose in the morning, but by the evening she was pitiful and the most sick I’ve seen her since stomach flu 2k19 hit our house in February.
She was sneezing and coughing and crying and lethargic and it was so, so pitiful. I knew she didn’t feel good when she fell asleep on my mom’s chest on the couch. She usually climbs all over couches and doesn’t ever sit still. Poor girl.
We all enjoyed a delicious turkey dinner compliments of my parents. Afterwards we all just hung out and tried to keep Sadie girl comfortable. My parents had the same cold, so we were all sick together. It was kinda nice not having to worry about passing on our germs, lol!
Sadie had a fitful night of sleep and woke up feeling about the same on Friday so we laid low for the day. Our big Black Friday purchase was a humidifier because we called Sadie’s pediatrician and they recommended one to help with her cough.
Our Thanksgiving was great, though. We were blessed enough to all wake up with a roof over our heads, families to visit, a God who loves us, and a meal on the table. What more could we want!
