Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Turkey Day, everyone! We started the day out with not having breakfast because Owen and I were too excited to talk to Ronak, Auntie Sarita, and Uncle Sameer on the computer. We talked for a long time!

Poke - our adopted pet for the weekend
Afterwards, we had to feed Poke, our adopted pet turtle.

Feeding Poke
Poke is one of Owen's class pets. Owen had volunteered to take Poke home to take care of it for the long weekend.

The rest of the day was a blur... maybe because I was so tired and took a 3 hour nap. I know mommy and daddy were busy cleaning the house while Owen didn't nap. Next thing I know, Grandma, Kung Kung, and Aunty Marlene came over with a ton of food and things to help set up the house. Grandma ordered 2 turkey meals from the Hawaii Prince Hotel in Waikiki. It came with all the fixings - stuffing, garlic mashed potatoes, baked yams, rolls, cranberry orange relish, gravy, and pumpkin pie.

Then everyone came over with more food.

The spread
Here's the final spread with inari sushi, pan sushi, namasu, ham, egg rolls, 3 different bean salads, spinach cranberry salad, and cornbread. We forgot to take a picture of the desserts - 3 different pumpkin pies, cranberry dream jello, mandarin orange cream cheese jello, brownies, and an ambrosia fruit dessert.

Owen provided some entertainment for us after dinner. Here he is performing the Hawaiian number song he learned at preschool.

The family
The whole family!
