Happy Thanksgiving!

Dear Liza,

Yesterday we got to play with cousins Jaxson and Maddie. First we went to to their house, where we played with Brio trains with Thomas the tank engine and had tea parties. Then we went to one of the wonderful parks by Mission Bay. We played hide and seek, tag, and just climbed all over the toys. It was so much fun, but boy, was I tired!

Last night we helped Auntie Bridgett’s Mom, Donna, get their house ready for Thanksgiving dinner. It was a little crazy, with four children 5 and under, but between baths, dinner, and Dr. Seuss’s Christmas, it all got done. The table looks so pretty.

This morning Auntie Bridgett and I walked a mile or so on the treadmill downstairs at the hotel’s gym, then had breakfast. Our waitress, Roxie, was chosen as employee of the year last year, and is a funny, quick serving lady.

We are now watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, happy that when we go out, it will NOT be 28 degrees like it is I. New York City, but a pleasant 59. We will head over for food and family later today. I am looking forward to Donna’s bourbon pecan pie and yams, and Michael’s turkey.

Happy Thanksgiving!
