"Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; So, let us all be thankful." - Buddha

Pictures of him like this remind me of what a great kid he is. I have to look at them on days like today, when, at 11:00 AM, he has already written on the couch and pillows with a ballpoint pen and locked our cat in a cage. Right now, he's crying because I told him he won't be going to Toys R Us to look at Star Wars stuff today due to his bad choices. Still, he's a really wonderful kid and I love him to pieces.
We woke up this morning at 4:00 to go outside and play in the first snow of the season. Not much snow at all - about half an inch, if that. But besides this being the first snow of the season, it's our first snow as L.A. transplants in North Carolina.
In a bit, Julian will be free from his think time in his room and we will go to the store to pick up the ingredients needed to make a pumpkin cheesecake. I'm going to buy some gluten-free ginger snaps to use for the crust, but I'd really like to make my own when I'm not so pressed for time. The cheesecake is a trial run for Thanksgiving so we don't show up to our host's house with a dish that could potentially taste like feet. I'm sure it will turn out great though.
What's your favorite dish for Thanksgiving? Are there any that you've been wanting to try, but haven't yet?
