Cameron's first Thanksgiving

For the past few years DH and I have eschewed Thanksgiving. We live far enough away that it didn't make sense for us to travel home for the holiday. Especially with Christmas just around the corner. So I was thrilled when Amanda invited us over for her Orphan Thanksgiving. 10 friends came together to eat lots of food, drink more than was necessary and have a wonderful time.

I am thankful for wonderful family and friends to spend the holidays with. We are laying low this weekend and avoiding the holiday crowds. But I can't wait to start decorating for Christmas!
Cameron and Holden play together after dinner.
Bread in the shape of a turkey. Awesome!
Yummy food.
The dinner table is set for 10.
Cameron chases Charlie around.
Cameron decides Charlie's toy is hers.
Proof of Cameron's new ability: crawling. Sorta.

I'm glad you have a nice friend to take you guys in. Maybe then you will be home for Christmas ? :)

She looks like she's crawling out of a foxhole. :) I'm most saddened about NO CHRISTMAS too. You're breaking my heart.
