We had a wonderful lunch yesterday with my parents and then went to the Reynolds' to give some more thanks. Both sets of parents worked so hard to make the best food and celebration for all of us. Below are some pictures from both houses. Also, here is some "food for thought", no pun intended since we are all stuffed! The Greek word for "Thanksgiving" is Eucharistia. In other words, the real "Thanksgiving meal" is the Body and Blood of Christ. And, this is so fitting because we would not be able to give this thanks if it weren't for our next celebration, the birth of Christ!!
Crib=disassembled and put in storage area of basement. Changing table=same fate (even though it has been empty and unused for three months now). Glider=upside down in the storage area.
Yes, the day arrived. Our last baby graduated from a crib to a regular bed. The crib that was used for nine years. That held my tiny babies' heads and represented a major chapter in my life. Here is Kyle last night, in the crib for one last time. Didn't use the flash because I didn't want to wake him. He has been using a pillow for some time now and enjoys a blanket. The crib rail has been down so he was basically already IN a regular bed except for some slats. Which really were not doing anything because he would just pop right out of bed whenever he felt it necessary!
