This year after we decided to do a non-traditional Thanksgiving. Instead of cooking or dinner at family's we took the Path train into the City. We had dinner and dessert in Chinatown. The girls requested lo mein and tea.
After dinner and dessert we did a little shopping and headed back to New Jersey.
I haven't been feeling very festive in wake of the chaos and strife I read about happening around the world. Take your pick ... Hate crimes are rising... Donald Trump is our President elect... Natives in Dakota are being terrorized...Syria... The days are shorter... Less sunlight. Oh the list seems endless. Hopefully for our babies sake I will be out of this funk by Christmas.
The girls had a blast and got to experience an ethnic neighborhood other then their own. I'd say mission accomplished!
