A Happy (Thanksgiving) Day

Yesterday was Thanksgiving and it's my favorite holiday. Unfortunately, Xavier was in Sri Lanka on business and Dorian's school doesn't celebrate it so I was at a loss of what to do. I didn't feel like make a huge Thanksgiving meal for just Dorian and I, honestly, right now I'm just too tired for that but, I did decide to keep Dorian home from school anyway. After all, Thanksgiving is about spending time with the ones you love. So, in the morning we traced our hands and made turkeys:


Then we made some brownies, it's not apple pie but we had fun:


Just before noon, two of my favorite people in the world came to see us...Susy and Dave, our first visitors! We stopped by the market to get picnic supplies, then spend a wonderfully fun afternoon at Lodi Garden:



They were only here for two short days, but we enjoyed every minute of being with them and Dorian treated them to a special show:

To finish off a great day, we had a pasta dinner with Susy's fabulous homemade pesto and some Indian wine. I'm so thankful for our fun day and for our great friends who brought us happiness and laughter for Thanksgiving.
