No Thanksgiving

Last year, for the first time, we didn't celebrate Thanksgiving. Even with two years having little babies we had Thanksgiving. But last night changing decorations on the ceiling for another birthday, I remembered why we didn't celebrate last year. It was just too much.

Our 2nd and 3rd children have birthdays four days a part and then after their birthdays, it is Thanksgiving. We started celebrating one birthday on one weekend, then the next weekend, we celebrate the other child's birthday.

Easton's birthday was last week.  We celebrated this past weekend or tried to, he was sick. I will blog later about it later. Today is Rio's birthday. We are going to celebrate her birthday the coming weekend.  It is also Thanksgiving Day weekend.

Last year to add to the chaos of two birthdays and Thanksgiving, was the start of hockey season. Jovy's first practice was on Thanksgiving evening.  Instead of rushing around trying to find time to make a turkey and eat the turkey.  We just didn't do it.

I felt guilty afterwards. I sort of feel bad thinking back on it now, but putting up those decorations last night I remembered why I made that choice.

This year we will celebrate Thanksgiving.
