Our Quarantined Thanksgiving | 2020

Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving! Since I'm 38 weeks pregnant, our family was on pre-baby quarantine during Thanksgiving this year. For more on that, you can read about it here: Pre-Baby Quarantine: Days 1 - 3.

Even if we hadn't been on pre-baby quarantine, due to the amount of COVID cases in our area, I still believe we would have done Thanksgiving at home with our immediate family. It was no question, however, being 38 weeks pregnant. We were staying home this year!

Quarantined Thanksgiving was full of love and a lot of the same traditions as usual. We made breakfast together as a family and watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in the morning. We made monkey bread, eggs and bacon.

My mom cooked and dropped off our entire Thanksgiving meal in the afternoon! (Thanks, mom!!) We FaceTimed with her while we ate the Thanksgiving meal for lunch. We also Facetimed with my grandma during lunch. It was really nice!

Piper played with her legos while Nick and I cleaned up lunch. We all took a little rest before playing a few table games together. Later in the afternoon we Facetimed with my dad's side of the family. We got to chat with everyone for over an hour. That was also really nice!

We had Thanksgiving on repeat for dinner, and got to video chat with Nick's mom for almost an hour. With all of the video calls, we got to see most of the same people we always do for Thanksgiving!

I'll be sharing a little video with some clips from our Thanksgiving at home and time spent decorating the Christmas tree together, soon!

Although some things look a little different this year, we are so grateful for this season we're in.
