Then we went on to making a craft, provided by our wonderful friends.

When we were done with our craft, Will, Jaan and Raia watched a movie about the first Thanksgiving, while I finished meal preparations.

A Pilgrim, an Indian and a baby

After our own family celebrations, we were going to go visit our friends, but they called as we were walking out the door to say that their littlest had just fallen asleep, so we went for a walk instead. Raia was convinced that there were two moons. We could see one out the window before we left and another outside. Perfect logic, right?

When we got back we decided to try to take a Christmas photo, since we already had the children dressed up. All I will say about that is that it reminded me of a recent post by Liz.

And that was our wonderful Thanksgiving day. I hope you all had one just as nice!

(I added two-month-old photos below. And Carrie put up a few more of our visit together. )

Thought I'd stop back by on my way off the computer--and there you are in beautiful Thanksgiving color! It looks like your Pilgrim, Indian, and baby had a memorable day--as well as providing you with much cause for thankfulness.

Much love....
