Despite a spate of head colds in the household, Thanksgiving came off very nicely. My sister Andrea is visiting us, and she was a tremendous help in the production of a fully edible turkey. I even pulled out some of my nice dishes that have been boxed up since we left Oregon in 2005. Yesterday was spent shopping for pants for my sister’s trip to The Nutcracker with a friend she met in Arizona who is now attending Simmons in the GSLIS program (I know-crazy coincidences!) Today Andrea and I are going to the Harry Potter exhibit at the Museum of Science, and Erik and I are hoping to squeeze in a movie sometime while we have a babysitter. Other than that, Thomas has off on Monday as well, but luckily Erik doesn’t work that day.
