Happy Thanksgiving!

The monkey family and I don't have family in our state so we were lucky enough to have been invited by friends to have Thanksgiving with them. The past couple of years we'd been celebrating Thanksgiving alone, which was still pleasant, but not quite the same as being with a larger group. My mom always had extended family over to our house for Thanksgiving and would prepare a large elegant meal. This was one of the few times we got to eat in the formal dining room. My mother is also a really good cook. I'm not sure why that didn't get passed on to me. Dadda monkey would say I inherited her nagging trait, but that's another topic entirely. This Thanksgiving I'm especially thankful for having friends nearby who have welcomed us into their home. It will feel more festive this year to dine with others and the monkeys will have other kids to play with as well. Dadda monkey is hoping they'll have the football games on. I'm also thankful to have people taking their time to read these posts. Wherever you're spending this holiday, I hope you enjoy it. Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. I know exactly how you feel. We use to have a big Thanksgiving dinner too and then we moved to North Carolina so we are alone and it's nice, but not the same.
