Following the education seminar at the adoption agency, we celebrated Thanksgiving with James' family. Hayley had already planned to visit over the weekend, so when our seminar was scheduled, it just made sense for everyone to get together, even if it was a bit early. I made some of the potatoes and stuffing on Friday night, and put the turkey in the oven to cook while we were gone. Hayley made some side dishes and pies Saturday morning, and we sat down to eat Thanksgiving dinner about an hour after our classes were through.
It was wonderful to decompress over a holiday meal, and to share what we'd learned with people who love and support us. Poppa John got to meet Hayley for the first time, and I believe he officially approves. Do I hear wedding bells?
