We had our usual *Friends Thanksgiving* at our place. Rick and his people started it eighteen years ago...! What a great evening of feasting and socializing. There were many kids in attendance as well (more and more as the years trickle by). We had a huge table set for 32 and with the kids there weren't enough seats! It made our house cramped and cozy with adults and kids alike shouting and laughing.
We also managed to sneak in a few Thanksgiving crafts today before the holiday (phew). On Sunday I took Nahum to see Hansel and Gretel put on by one of the local-ish ballet companies around here. He really loves his ballet class and if I pretend not to notice I can catch him twirling and leaping and sashaying around the house.
