Here are some pictures of their first Thanksgiving:
Thanksgiving started with their first snow:

Benjamin enjoying the fresh snowy air!
Their first Thanksgiving was anti-climactic for them after that-- they didn't really eat too much Thanksgiving food, since our dinner was at 7:30 pm, after their bedtime. During the day I was with them all day while everyone else cooked, so that was a strange experience for me, my first year not cooking. We did find time to read from the Nutshell Library with Meema Alison:
I did give them each a taste of baby food turkey yesterday. I have to admit that it looked so disgusting that I couldn't stand looking at it, so I wasn't very sad when they seemed to dislike it. Their next meat will be homemade and home food-milled so that I won't feel grossed out feeding it to them!
The downside to all this holiday excitement is that their nap and sleep schedules have been a mess, since they now have a hard time sleeping when there is something else going on. No need to get into details, but I am finding that I am not very flexible when it comes to sleep schedules and would rather miss out on the party than have my guys be tired cranks. It is hard, though, because I do like them to spend time with all of their great-grandparents, grandparents, and cousins. It should be interesting at Christmas when we go visit Eric's family-- there are more events and more people!
