Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I decided that last year and I still feel the same about it this year. I love the food, first of all. I also love spending time with family and the annual cousin's party on the day after Thanksgiving. The party planning always starts with deciding on a theme. There must be a theme! This year we decided to have a recital by cousins and for cousins. I could not have been more proud of and entertained by each performance. There were a variety of acts. Below is a fencing demonstration by Warren:
Andrew sang some songs he wrote. Impressive!
Here, Melita is drawing Hobbit hair onto Lois and Lilly's feet in preparation for their piano and cello performance of a song from Lord of the Rings.
There were several power point presentations. Gather 'round the laptop everyone! Sadly, our plan to use a projector didn't work out.
A more supportive group cannot be found!
Other acts included coffee tasting (or "cupping" as we learned it is called), a presentation on tree rings, a spoken word piece, stand-up comedy, and more. It was so fun! We might just have to do it again next year!
