I never have high hopes for Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving seems to be about sitting around with family, chatting. Being indoors and quiet and civilized. And my kids are terrible at those things. So usually I spend Thanksgiving keeping my kids out of other people's things and entertained enough not to be driving everyone crazy. This year, though, was different.
First of all, we brought an arsenal of puzzles, which kept both kids sufficiently busy. Secondly, Aunt Melodee has two teenagers that are proud owners of a Nintendo Wii, which worked out amazingly well. Thirdly, Aunt Melodee's house is surprisingly child proof and home to an Isaac-sized puppy. And lastly, there was piano and a guitar to fascinate Isaac. All of this meant I got to help cook! I got to chat with relatives! I even pulled out a book to read for a little while! This was easily our best Thanksgiving in years.
Thanks Aunt Melodee!
Can't get enough? Here's more! Isaac in the leaves!
