We thoroughly enjoyed our two Thanksgivings again this year. Two tasty turkeys were turned out by my mom and mother-in-law as always! Was it just me, or did the holidays kind of sneak up on us this year?
We also had two other turkeys in the form of my mother-in-law’s cat Oliver and my sister-in-law’s cat Nanaa for entertainment. Last year I had blogged about their interaction (or lack thereof) and this year was no better. Nanaa is getting braver, but not more tolerant of Oliver. It’s always fun to watch them hash it out.
After a fabulous dinner and dessert, we enjoyed the fire and of course, some wine.
Even Oliver enjoyed the fire.
Nanaa preferred to keep to herself so as to stay out of Oliver’s way.
Don’t hide Nanaa!
Later on we played Cranium. Girls against guys. The girls were winning for most of the game, but somehow the guys came back to beat us.
Maybe it was my brother-in-law’s awesome blind-drawing skills.
Then the boys played some ping pong in the basement. Like boys do on Thanksgiving.
Meanwhile, Nanaa decided to venture out to the living room hoping that the coast was clear.
Look out behind you Nanaa!
She was not amused.
Eventually, they just ignored each other. They were too tired to strike up a game of clawless-paw batting. (Speaking of which, have you seen this video? Hilarious!)
Too much turkey I think.
Looking forward to the holidays! I better get back to my x-mas shopping. My sister flies in on 12/21!
