My house for Thanksgiving was the wonderful bedlam that holidays should be. Both my daughters came with their fellas and we decorated for Christmas after our evening meal. The Muppet Christmas Carol was blasting on the TV, remnants of pie was scattered around the room and Henry enjoyed every single minute, being passed from lap to lap and wearing Christmas lights for decoration.
