Books, balloons and birds
We celebrate Thanksgiving here in New York with Will's parents and a few friends which meant this year we were able to use their newly renovated kitchen to do all the cooking. Wow, it's a lot easier to prepare a big meal when your sink is actually big enough for the dirty pots and pans to fit into and your oven can't be mistaken for an Easy Bake.
I made the turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie, Will's mom made the potatoes, vegetables and duck (and her famous fruit turkey!), and Will and his dad kept Nathan entertained all afternoon. I am happy to report that dinner was a success, I was very nervous about the turkey since it was only my 3rd time ever preparing one but I think it turned out really well, at least nobody ended up in hospital. We gave thanks and shared a great meal with great company.
We have a lot to be thankful for this year, but of course we are most thankful for our handsome little man.
