We just celebrated my cousin Grady's 1st birthday! It was so much fun. Aunt JJ's birthday is the day after Grady's (Nov. 28th and 29th). Aunt JJ is in China so we celebrated early.
Then we all celebrated Thanksgiving the next day at Aunt JJ's and Uncle Peter's house. My Grandma Helen and Ed and my Nonna were all there!! Mom is still thinking about the sweet potato pie. She says it was delish, but still not as good as Grandmas.
Did you know the average American consumes 5000 calories on Thanksgiving?
