This Thanksgiving was definitely a first for both me and Porter. It was just the three of us, with Harrison, and two guys Porter works with who also didn't have any family in the area. I ended up buying a precooked turkey because I figured you couldn't mess up a precooked turkey too bad, and actually it ended up really really good. The day was both good and bad, the morning was a total disaster. Porter burnt the cookies by not taking them out when I asked him too and I think, actually I know, I overreacted way too much. But I think some of the overreaction came from being homesick and having a very small Thanksgiving. But I calmed down and we were able to enjoy the rest of the day.

On Friday it was such a beautiful day, 63 degrees, so we definitely wanted to be outside. We went into the city and did some sightseeing.
