Happy Thanksgiving!!

I hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving. Nathaniel told me he is thankful for God, because if it wasn't for God, none of us would exist! lol.

We were able to make it to Old Sturbride Village for a Thanksgiving banquet. We got there early since we wanted to look around the living museum, but Penny was just so miserable. I felt so bad but we paid a lot for these dinner tickets so we tried it out and Penny made it through dinner ok with the help of some Tylenol. Then I took Penny back to the car so Scott and Nathaniel could enjoy another hour or so of the museum and she slept the entire hour and a half as well as the 45 minute ride back home. Then she slept until 5 or 6 when we realized that she was burning up. Scott took her temp and it was 104.1!!! I called the pediatrician's office first and left a message with the answering service to make sure that a 104 temp doesn't mean she should go the hospital. 40 minutes and a 2nd phone call to the answering service to make sure I had given them the right number for the doctor to call, and we just gave her more Tylenol. By the time we did get a call back at about 8 pm, she was feeling well enough to have dinner and terrorize our living room as usual. Since she was playing the dr. wasn't too concerned.

But we did have a lovely dinner. There was ham, turkey, apricot glazed carrots, broccoli and cheese Au gratin, mashed potatoes, a crudites table with home made pounded cheese, mac and cheese, and homemade cranberry sauce that was out of this world. Not to mention butternut squash bisque and salad fixin's. The desert table was wonderful too. There was this Indian bread pudding that was delicious. Their coffee was so wonderful too that I swear I thought there was alcohol in it. lol. I just wish Penny could have enjoyed it more.

Well, good night!!! I will post pix this weekend when I have more time I am sure.

So glad penny is doing better! 104 is scary when they are little.
Glad your day went well otherwise. Sounds yummy!

What a fun Thanksgiving despite poor little Penny not feeling well. Those high fevers are scary! Hope she's feeling better today;)
