We had a very nice Thanksgiving. The dinnner was lovely, the visit with my parents was great fun. #2 daughter was here for a couple of days and we enjoyed her visit. We played Encore and Word Thief, cooked things, ate things, watched a movie, and had a marathon hair-cutting session with Cecelia.

Today, my husband is driving our kid back to school, whence she will leave for St. Louis to see Wicked. She has been reading the book and listening to the CD in preparation.

It is Black Friday (named either for being the day retailers start turning a profit, or for the behavior of shoppers, take your pick). Also, it is Buy Nothing Day. (Again, take your pick.)
