Thanksgiving in Paris. Actually yes, there are quite a few people that celebrate Thanksgiving, so much so that I didn't even have to pre-order the turkey from the meat market up the street. But it was a very fresh turkey, I think it was actually running around early Friday morning. However the butcher was very nice, and cleaned it all up for me so I didn't have to deal with any of those "unsightly" parts.
We had a grand fete with our friends Kevin & Rachel & their daughter Ava. Sophia & Ava had an interesting evening together (Sophia is entering the 2's), but had a great time the last 15 minutes when they just ran in circles between the living room & dining room chasing each other. Needless to say, the one seat didn't work between the 2 of them, so we brought the chairs in from Sophia's room so they could each have one.
We had a bit of snow in the morning, as it has been quite cold here. It's all becoming very festive; the cold & snow, the lights up on the Champs Elysees, the cold, interesting re-makes of American versions of the traditional Christmas carols, the cold. It's amazing how the time has gone!
