We celebrated Thanksgiving with grandma and grandpa and auntie and uncle and cousins. The boys played outside with their cousins until it got dark and then they played inside with their dress-up clothes. The power went out while we were cooking dinner so we got out all the cangles and had a great discussion about what life was like when there was no power.
