Happy Thanksgiving!

Well at least it will be (a Happy Thanksgiving that is) for most of you by the time you read this. We have a lot to be thankful for this year, not least of all our relaxing vacation!

As we are gearing up to put our turkey in the oven tomorrow, we have been continuing to eat our way through Deep Creek, MD and our well stocked pantry.

Today in addition to doing not a whole lot of anything else, Elizabeth taught me how to make chocolates all afternoon (I learned how to make empanadas yesterday!). As you can see if you look closely into the photos we filled the refrigerator with lots of different homemade treats. Lilah got to sample her new favorite which I am calling "Chocolate, marshmallows and peanuts mush!" Trust me it is much tastier than it sounds.
We also did take some time to try to get the kids outside to exercise, but it turns out that the state parks were closed today, so running around the backyard and then playing "Toddler Cage Match" in Alexander's pack n play was the best we could do to wear them out.

Off to a movie and then bed so we can all be well rested for tomorrow's hard days work of eating and (you guessed it!) eating.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!
