November 26: We started our Thanksgiving holiday off with an overnight visit from our NC family/friends. Someone recently said to me, “Cousins are like celebrities for kids.” As these four tore around the house THRILLED to be in each others’ presence, it was clear this stretches to 2nd cousins, as well.
November 27: Nick’s family joined us for a day of celebration and Thanksgiving meal on Wednesday. With work schedules and other family plans, it made the most sense to spread the festivities so everyone could be apart of the big meal this year.
November 28: Thanksgiving day was beautiful. Those of still in town spent sometime hiking in a local park.
November 30: For the remainder of the holiday weekend we renovated the living room: repairing plaster and painting the walls and ceiling. As Nick tackled some of the messier aspects, the three of us worked on games and activities at the table.
