Thanksgiving Pre-Fesivities

We have been doing a lot of creating at our house. Here is some handy-work.

I wanted to do something fun for us to see some of the things we are thankful for instead of just talking about it. All month we have been adding feathers to our plump turkey.
Here is how he is looking so far.

The kids have been having a lot of fun thinking of different things and keeping me on track. 
Here are some close-ups of our assortment.

Our other female artist wanted to make a turkey too. Very nice.

Somewhere I have a picture of the turkey our young prince made...must find it. He did a very impressive job. Instead of cutting out colored paper like the girls, he drew and colored a picture. Then cut it out, pasted it on another piece of paper and then colored that to make a background. He then proceeded to color, cut out, and paste and heart for the turkey and a cookie for it to hold. All in all it took him about 2 solid hours of hard work. Proud momma?...yes I think so.

November 26 - Class First Day of Thanksgiving Performance 
Our growing Pilgrim and his class put on a performance, telling about the First Thanksgiving. They also showed pictures and told what are some things they are thankful for. Their class was the only one in the school to do this. I love his teacher so very much. This is her first year of teaching all on her own and she is doing an outstanding job.
I love to hear about what she is teaching her class. She not only wants them to know what is required for them to learn, but is teaching them how to be upstanding citizens in society...teaching them some key life lessons as well. Bless her heart. She is amazing.

Grandma Berg (Mommsa) and Uncle Spencer arrived in town right before we headed to his performance. Danny also didn't have any classes during this time. 
So all of us headed to surprise our pilgrim. He was all smiles when he noticed his cheering squad.
