We decided to spend Thanksgiving this year in Kansas City. At home. Just the four of us. And it was exceptional.

We got to create our own menu and do everything however we wanted. No luggage to pack, marshmallows on the sweet potatoes ... nor giblets.

Leslie got up early this morning and had warm cinnamon rolls waiting for us when we woke!

We of course made sure to call our families though, and it was great to talk to everyone.

The hazards of drawing trace-your-hand turkeys.

Cranberry sauce in progress. (Boiling them in OJ, not just the water that the recipe called for.) Jack even had seconds!

Jack eating the turkey leg that he's been talking about for days. During our nice, intimate dinner, I threw out the question, "What are you most thankful for this year?" As we went around the table and Leslie and I gave heartfelt replies about all that we're blessed with, Jackson's answer was "Turkey skin."

Landon's tryptophan smile.
