We decided to keep this years Thanksgiving super low key. When we lives alone in CA we would have this small fun little holidays where Lars and I would cook traditional and nontraditional food and then go see movies. This year we showed Roan what it was like.
We made gratitude hats. We wrote on the back of them what we are grateful for.
Okay, first these were going to be a leafy banner but then it turned into hats with leaves but they look like feathers so Lars thinks they are racists so I am not allowed to put them on FB. He didn't say anything about blogs however. ;) Next year I promise we will make pilgrim hats to even the "hat racism" saga here. LOL
I find that crafts with toddlers are good for killing time.
We played while we watched the Macy's Day Parade
Then we had a cheese fondue
Then we took Roan to see his first Theatre Movie every. We saw The Good Dinosaur.
He did SO GOOD during the movie. I did learn a few things that will help us when we go take him to see Star Wars in a few weeks.
Then we went home and had gourmet pastrami sandwiches
Lars made a pumpkin pie from scratch
I made a banana cream pudding pie
We took our pies to enjoy with Lars' Koons cousins. It was a lot of fun.
We love our family but also love being in our own little family sometimes. It was so nice and relaxing to show Roan what a traditional out of family state Thanksgiving is like.
This is Roan playing in his room the day after Thanksgiving with his sombrero hat
(yup a post with more racism LOL)
