thankful for Thanksgiving at home

We've been home for TWO months now, with no trips! While we miss all our far-away family and particularly the fast-growing grandchildren, it's nice to be home after a flurry of trips in late summer and early fall.

I'm a self-avowed homebody; while I like visiting and seeing new places, I'm most comfortable at home with my own bed, desk, bathroom and coffee mug. Maybe most everyone is like that?

Bill, Katie and I welcomed Mark, Jill, Lily and Ethan for Thanksgiving. It was fun and low-key. When your company includes small children and babies, you're tied to the house for feedings, naps and regularly timed meals. So we didn't go out to a movie or the zoo (it was frigid outside; too cold for babies) or much of anything away from the house. But it was nice to hold Ethan (though at almost 3 months he mostly prefers mama), play with Lily and play games with the adults.

 Thanks for making the trip, Mark and Jill! Christmas will be quite another story ...
