Turkey Day in Sac

Thanksgiving in Sacramento with Steve's family was great. We spent a lot of time with family, ate way too much, watched movies and played games. Typical Thanksgiving stuff. And since this was the first time in almost four years that all of Steve's siblings were home, we decided to do some pictures in the backyard.

Sophie thought Tito was more interesting than the camera.

Thanksgiving dinner had a bit of an African twist. The George's, friends of Steve's family from Nigeria, invited us to their beautiful home to have dinner with them. Beside the traditional turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes sat rice, fried bread and bowls of yummy saucy stuff that Peju and her kids made.

Here's a pic of us with Peju. She's great.

Someone got a little sleepy after dinner, so I hid her somewhere I could keep an eye on her.

When she woke up, she had some playtime with Dad.

I'm always amazed (and jealous) when people can put their sleeping babies on the floor (let alone in a room where everyone is!!). I wish I could do that with Bentley! Okay, so I haven't actually tried it. That's because I know it would be impossible. That skirt she has on is so cute!

Well, the only reason why she stayed like that was because she fell asleep nursing a few minutes earlier. I can't just put her on the floor awake in a room full of people anymore and expect her to fall asleep. :(

I do love that skirt, and that binki clip is to die for. You're making me wish I had a baby. I hear you'll be here for Christmas. are you staying long?
