Getting ready for Thanksgiving

Claire's preschool class made these Indian costumes for their Thanksgiving Feast on Monday. You can't really see it in the picture, but her Indian name is written on her headdress. Indian princess, Shining Star. Er, actually, whoever wrote the name couldn't spell, so it really says "Shinning Star." Oh well.

Meet Tom, our Thanksgiving Turkey

Seriously, just call me Martha Stewart. Tom is my idea this year for helping us all to remember to be thankful every day, not just on Thanksgiving day. For every day of the month of November, we have been writing what we are thankful for on turkey feathers, and have been adding them to Tom's tail. Ok, so I stole the idea from Parent's magazine. Shhhhhh. But the kids have really gotten into it, and even Ben has been contributing. Some of the most memorable contributions: apple crisp, Big Doggy, snow, Popsicles, ice cream, and last night, Ben was thankful that Claire was an Indian.

Love Tom! Great idea, mom of the year.

And the fact that Claire's Indian name is misspelled is the the BEST! It couldn't have happened to a better mom. If that teacher only knew!
