Pre Thanksgiving

We have been having fun with Thanksgiving this week. (But next week it will be even more fun when Dar and Sean are with us!) For Family Fun Time (more on this in another post...if all keeps going well...I'm talking about the sleeping habits of a particular four year old...) we made corn husk crafts.

Dan's looks pretty good for a guy who hasn't colored or made a craft in years.

Anna is very proud of hers.

Today we had a homeschool coop at our house. We read some Thanksgiving stories and had a feast of their favorite foods.

There were peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, mac 'n cheese and pizza.

I served chicken tortilla soup to the adults. And we all had pumpkin pie for dessert.
The kids made turkey crafts and someone got the idea that the turkeys were all in a "chicken fight" and so they drew red scratches all over the turkeys and their own faces as well! (In their defense they did ask permission first.)

Mia "securely" taped Anna's turkey to the wall so Anna couldn't take it down. Her own turkey is of course free to wander about the house!

Tomorrow we are going to the library to make pilgrim hats. And then kid's Thanksgiving time will wind down and adults will begin! I went to the liquor store today and got the ingredients for pumpkin spice martinis. We are having 21 people over for Thanksgiving. I can't wait!
