A Very Disney Thanksgiving

We were very lucky to get a visit from the cutest little turkey around this Thanksgiving, our niece Super G! It was her first visit to So Cal and to our house, but most importantly to the Happiest Place on Earth.

Disneyland is always magical, but most especially when you have a tiny person to see it through. We spent Tuesday and Wednesday soaking in the wonderment that is Disney. It was a fabulous way to spend Thanksgiving week, a great reminder of all we have to be thankful for.

Just a few pics:

Watching the Holiday parade with Auntie Al.
Always a jokester that hubs of mine. This is just one of about 15 photos of his random faces.

I was so excited to go on this ride with Super G for her very first time. It's a Disney classic and made me so very happy.

Pretend tea cup ride with the girls:)

My cute mama and me, with J in the background throwing up a "hey there."

When they lit the castle that night and it snowed, I honestly could not help getting teary eyed. It was so beautiful and we were so lucky to be standing there experiencing it all together.

My crazy family at our house on Thanksgiving day. It was a great day, very relaxing. The kind of day where you just enjoy each other, chat, laugh, take a walk and or a nap. We cooked a low key, very non-traditional meal and all sat at the table and it was wonderful. I loved looking across and seeing Super G sitting like a big girl with us, it truly warmed my heart.

Yes it's true, Thanksgiving really is my favorite holiday (followed very closely by Christmas) because I love the feeling of thankfulness, and always hope to carry that through the whole year even when times are hard. Hope you all had a wonderful day with loved ones too.

Now bring on the Christmas cheer!
