We had Thanksgiving at our house this year. That's where it has been for the past three years. I've been hosting Thanksgiving and Nate's parents host Christmas. I think now I'm actually getting the hang of cooking a turkey and it's not nearly as bad or hard as I always thought. Some of you may wonder why we don't travel to see my family during the holidays and it's not because we don't want to, it's because we can't. Since Nate works in retail, he is not allowed any vacation time whatsoever from Thanksgiving until after the new year. In fact, the day after Thanksgiving every single employee at the store has work. It really stinks, but at least Nate has a job.
Now, back to our Thanksgiving day. It was relaxing. We cooked, we ate, and we watched some football.
Our family picture. Sanaa thought it was hilarious that Aria was sitting next to her and all Aria wanted was to get away from the extremely loud and obnoxious little girl.
Notice Sanaa's sippy cup in the picture. You'd think that if one were thirsty one would drink from the cup. But no, it is way more fun to dip a stick in the cat water and then put the stick in your mouth. Maybe the water tastes better that way.
Playing in the leaves. Sanaa can't get enough of leaves. I'm not sure what she'll do once we rake all the leaves up.
Eating Thanksgiving dinner. I know her expression is one of disgust, but she did really enjoy the turkey, fruit, and biscuits. As for the stuffing, green beans, and potatoes.... well, she didn't like those as much. Last Thanksgiving Sanaa was too young to take part in our Thanksgiving dinner (she was only 4 1/2 months old), so this is her first time to try some of these foods (like the stuffing).
