thanks and giving

For Thanksgiving we had the pleasure of being invited to some friends of ours that we met through out neighborhood bird store. 3 years ago when we moved into our neighborhood micah and i would go on walks almost everyday. which is when we met Cindy whose son owns an exotic bird store. we would walk there just to see the birds and before long we were walking there just to see Cindy's friendly face. we soon met her son Jay and got to know his partner as well. they invited us this year for thanksgiving and we accepted quickly. it was such a relaxing and laid back day. the dinner was amazing, everyone pitched in and brought their favorites.
this little lady was so sweet. she sat at the table and waited so patiently for everyone else to join her.
the game was still on when i took this picture of matt. i love his glazed and very happy look!
in Jay and Sean's back yard was one of the largest banyan trees i have ever seen. the kids played in its roots for an hour. the neighbors had also hung two swings from it's branches.

so sweet...
one of the other benifits of having dinner at jay's was a puppy that they had just adopted, sophie. micah fell hopelessly in love with that puppy and declared that she was more the size of puppy he would like some day. i told him that we would wait until dido was a little older and then maybe he could get something a little more like sophie. i asked him what he would name a puppy. he told me, "Sophie, of course mama. that is the perfect puppy name!" i hope your thanksgiving day was as full and happy as ours was. it is always good to get the chance to give and to say our thanks!
