I wanted to flashback to a past Thanksgiving, but as I was searching for proof that I've been eating turkey since I could sit up on my own, I realized that somehow Turkey day managed to jump out of the cameras view more than once. I can't find a single picture from mine and Christopher's first couple of years together. Being the OCD picture taker that I am now, I can't imagine not having taken pictures back then. I guess we didn't get our first digital camera until I was pregnant with Eleanore. Wow. How things change.
Eleanore was born in the summer of 2006. Shortly after, we moved from our training base, down here to good ol' Dyess. Before living in the luxurious 2 story house that we're blessed with right now, we lived in a tiny ant infested apartment. But to us, that tiny apartment was the best place we had ever lived. It was our first home together as a family.
Our first Thanksgiving dinner was prepared and eaten, all while the little one slept. She cozied up in her travel size aquarium swing, set in the center of the living room floor, while Christopher and I tucked ourselves away in the cave like kitchen, and playfully celebrated all of the things that we had recently become thankful for.
Our new home.
Our beautiful new baby girl.
We didn't have a kitchen table, and we didn't want to wake up the babe, we sat down and enjoyed our first Thanksgiving dinner as a married couple, on the carpeted area that separated the kitchen from the rest of the apartment.
Share a flashback with us! By now some of you have become flashback regulars, and we love it! I sit down on Friday nights and reach each and every memory that you type out- who needs going out with the girls anyways? I'd rather stay in with my blogger friends *nerd alert*.
If you'd like to post a flashback, leave your link on the list below. Please make sure you link from your post, back to this post as well, that way more people can come along and play. I love it when I see a new face on the lineup.
