Thanksgiving

We celebrated our first Thanksgiving in our new home. We had my parents, my sister and her two kids, and my brother and his wife over for a day of food and fun.

Because we were all together we decided to exchange a few gifts. We’ve had the same tradition since my brother was in Kindergarten: we pick names and give a homemade gift rather than a purchased one.
