Happy Thanksgiving!

Another holiday uncelebrated here in Australia, but that didn't stop us from having our own Thanksgiving last night. Really, any excuse for turkey will do!

The table set and ready to go!

 We went to my Mum's house, where she had made dinner for all twelve of us. And let me say, that turkey was PERFECT. There's a lot to be said for cooking turkey on the barbecue!

Mum is so clever with decorating and creating centerpieces. I can't do it to save my life, but she managed to decorate the house to a theme, which seemed to be an Australian interpretation of the Northern Hemisphere Fall Season. Sort of a merging of two cultures. It's an idea that has the potential to be very, very weird; but she managed to pull it off and everything looked amazing!

Today the boys and I have had a very quiet day. Felix has come down with something, so he has a fever and is completely miserable, poor boy. Victor is fine but still tired from staying out so late last night. (10pm is late for us!). It's my birthday today so Phil and I were planning to go out for dinner tonight, but looks like that will have to be postponed! Felix is not good with taking medication at all, so getting him to take something is always a struggle. In fact, it's more than a struggle; it's a two-person job. He fell asleep while watching TV this afternoon and since he doesn't usually have a nap during the day he must really need the rest. He doesn't seem to have any other symptoms other than feeling tired, hot and miserable so I'm hoping it's nothing too bad and goes away soon.

It also means I have to be vigilant in keeping everything sanitary to reduce the chances of Victor catching this bug too. Hand washing is extremely important to reduce the risk of spreading the illness so it's time to stock up on hand wash and sanitizer!
