Happy Turkey Day, everyone! I hope everyone has plans for wonderful, filling, and delicious Thanksgiving dinners later today. I know I do, and I plan to wear my stretchy pants. Don’t act like you’re not going to do the same.
Riley is off all this week, but they did all kinds of activities and projects in school last week in honor of Thanksgiving. They colored pictures, made a “T” turkey, wrote some wacky words, and practiced their “smartie spelling.” And I was happy to discover that he is thankful for his brother, his mom, his toys, and his dad. And something else, but he lost the fifth feather and can’t remember what he wrote on it. At least the important ones stayed intact!
Riley also brought home something very special on Friday. Mrs. Allison and Mrs. Ceci put together a Secret Family Recipe booklet: “The following secret recipes have been unknowingly handed down from parent to child through the watchfulness of little eyes. They have been told to Mrs. Allison just before Thanksgiving, November 26, 2015. We are hoping that our Thanksgiving gift of culinary hints will assist you in preparing your own Thanksgiving feast. Happy Thanksgiving!”
So freaking cute. The booklet includes all 18 kids’ “recipes,” and, as you can imagine, their answers are priceless. Such wonderful insight from Riley’s perspective!
Riley and Kate both came home from school last Friday wearing fun hats, and Kate had an adorable shirt on. They had a great time playing outside at Nola and Nopsi’s after school. I am so thankful the three cousins get along so well. I’m also thankful there will soon be a fourth to join in the fun; Nugget will be here in less than one month!
I am so thankful for my family, especially for Kenny and for these two turkeys.
From our family to yours, we wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving. Now go eat!
