Happy Thanksgiving!

I’m sure most of you are gearing up for your celebrations.  We are 1/3 through our Thanksgiving holidays already!  Last Saturday, my mother hosted Thanksgiving dinner.  Monkey had a great time and was very relaxed despite the crowd.  He has come to expect crowds when we visit my parents and so it doesn’t seem to upset him any more.  4 of my 5 nieces/nephews were there along with my 2 youngest cousins (they’re the same age as the nieces/nephews so they get lumped in with them.)  Monkey really loves his cousins, the girls all dote on him and he follows them around and tickles them.  It’s very cute. 

Monkey even wrestled with my grandfather over his cane.  No worries, Papa was sitting down and instigated the battle by poking Monkey with it (the troublemaker) and Monkey won.  Later he went back and grabbed Papa’s cane and handed it to him so they could have a repeat match.  I’m pretty sure Monkey let Papa win that time.

Tomorrow, Duhdee’s grandfather will be joining us for rack of lamb.  We’ll host Duhdee’s family for “Thanksgiving”  the second weekend of December…we really like to spread out the feasting!  Some day when we build our weekend place we’ll host both families at one giant meal.  I’m really looking forward to that.  In the meantime this works.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

    Weekend place and a great big feast sounds great! Although the Rack o Lamb sounds really good. Happy Thanksgiving today and every day.
