Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
I did the vast majority of my cooking yesterday, so today was all about relaxing. No, seriously-- when my neighbor stopped by with a delicious pumpkin pie around noon, he caught me still in my pajamas. I was dedicated to relaxing today.
So we watched a movie, and strung more cranberries, and played games, and just generally lazed around until our friend from church arrived and it was time to eat our American-Thai fusion Thanksgiving dinner. The really nice thing about it was that it didn't make you super full, so then it was possible to eat way more dessert than normal.
We played a few rounds of Chicken Foot (a dominoes game that's a Texas staple and which we are bound and determined to introduce to the entire Pacific Northwest, mostly so we have other people to play against) and then called it a night. All in all it was a lovely day. Looking around the table, it was easy to see that I have a lot to be thankful for.
I spent the rest of the evening getting out Christmas stuff, since tomorrow we'll be setting up our decorations. I can't believe it's that time already!
