Aiden and I began Thanksgiving prep a few days before hand. Andrew and Oliver just kept themselves out of the kitchen. We made pierogis and froze them so they’d be ready to fry Thanksgiving morning. Then he helped me batter pork chops while I fried them. They got baked the day of. Our usual turkey chefs were traveling England and Iceland, so we made due with some non-traditional Karas traditions.
Kelly and Matt arrived early and we started the day off with the parade, mimosas, and playing with friends.
The newest little framily member came and got lots of snuggles.
Sarah, Tobin, and Jadaka road-tripped up from Portland and camped in their RV for the night in our driveway. Brody also got lots of snuggles.
Aunt Sarah gave Aiden a little aerial balancing lesson.
Dad, Andrew, and I had some beverages at a few breweries. I snuck off for macarons at Lady Yum when we made a brewery stop in Kirkland.
Aiden got into the Thanksgiving spirit making scarecrows at school.
Thanks to my parents, I completed this shoe bench for our entry way.
