This has been one wILd & cRazY week around here. Isn't it always that way right before a school holiday?? It sure feels like it to me!
I had a work trip early in the week which made things even harder and Noonie has been in Puerto Rico visiting my sweet grandma and we miss her like crazy. I have to give a big ThAnK YOu to my MIL Judy for taking care of the littles Monday & Tuesday...we couldn't have made it this week without you, Mimi!!
Now on to some fun stuff...Yes! Wednesday was the little pumpkin's Preschool Thanksgiving Feast. Last year she was Running Deer, the cutest little Native American girl ever and this year she chose to be a sweet Pilrim girl.I LOVE all the sweet artwork Grace is always bringing home - her teachers sure do go the extra mile and this feast was no exception...Every child gets to make a Native American costume to keep and they each pick their own Native American name. This year Grace has been all about foxes...she is in L-O-V-E with them, so it was no surprise she picked "Running Fox" as her name. Time for their long-anticipated program! The little songs are just the best...Hello, Mr. Turkey, how are you?....he he heThe grand finale was a really silly song, "...the turkey has gone quite bezerky...can we eat hotdogs this year??" Oh my, they were sooo funny. This was just hilarious to them!After the sweet program, it was time for the feast!This little book was fuNNY! A couple of weeks ago,
Mrs. Bryan read the story of the first thanksgiving to the class and then had each child tell her the story in their own words. I loved reading all of them...from the "Lady (Native) Americans" to the "Paragus (Pilgrims)" each story was so cute.Here is Grace's rendition...Sweet, sweet friends...Grace and KennedyGrace & Reese...such cuties...love that Pilgrim girl and her buddy Reese!Another cute Native American boy...Howling Wolf (Julien) and Hudson trying to show Julien his thanksgiving dinner artwork...Hudson went with Lance and I to Grace's thanksgiving feast and since I knew the big kids would have lots of artwork, I told him he could bring some of his artwork too.
He picked my favorite! Isn't this little thanksgiving dinner collage cute??!There's my sweet & silly boy (who can't stand still)!
Can't wait to attend his Thanksgiving Feast next year!When I picked up Hudson at MDO on Thursday, his teachers told me that they set up a "fancy" thanksgiving table for all the littles to enjoy their version of a thanksgiving (finger-food) lunch and when Hudson saw the table for the first time he said, "Burtiful. That just burtiful." Do you think he's seen me set up a couple of dessert tables or what? HA!
