Thanksgiving

We had a fun Thanksgiving here at home. The festivities lasted pretty much all week, ranging from basketball games for Chris, shopping for me, outtings for Alec and food for everyone! We made dinner with a few friends but planned on having it after bedtimes so we could actually sit and enjoy the meal. So, in order to give the kids a fun Thanksgiving we went to the free dinner for Stanford's graduate students at a nearby building. They had a guy dressed up in a turkey suit for the kids. Our friend's boy said, "Whats that monster?" when he first saw the turkey. Yes, it was that scary. Alec had to be looking at the turkey at all times whenever it was in the room with him. He was quite concerned about it.

We contributed rolls, jello, mashed potatoes, gravy, apple and blueberry cream cheese pie to our Thanksgiving dinner. Everybody's everything turned out really good! That might be in large portion due to the fact that we were starving and exhausted by the time 7:45pm rolled around. The house was clean and the company was really fun. After dinner we sang Christmas carols around the piano and talked till late. It was almost like being home with family. I just love the holidays!
