Thanksgiving was great. We watched movies all day Thursday while Trav graded papers, I did laundry and cleaned the kitchen and we took turns taking care of L. We had dinner at my parents' house. It was a lot of fun and a wonderful break for me since L was always being held by someone, which means she was always happy.
