Happy Thanksgiving!

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration this year at Nannie & “Opa”s house! We got to help Nannie make her special stuffing, set the table with all of our homemade crafts that we made with mommy, eat a delicious meal & spend a lot of fun time with our family! We are very thankful this year!

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.”

 

We hope your family had a wonderfully special day too, and that you are as grateful for all your blessings as we are!

Our popcorn party at preschool!

Today was a special day at preschool, as we celebrated Thanksgiving with a popcorn party! Mommy even came and took some pictures!

We sang a fun song about how we use all of our five senses when we make popcorn…

I have such a good time with all my friends, but we missed our other classmate Allie who is out of town…

After our snack time, we lined up to head down to the basement, where there was a cool surprise waiting for us…

Our very own Indian Teepee! My Indian name was “Singing Sparrow”!

We’ve been learning SO much in preschool…

My favorite job is to feed the fish, but handing out the flutes is pretty cool too…

We’ve been learning about the 5 senses lately!

Grandma Worthing is VERY patient about helping me learn to write my letters and numbers!

That magical time of year…

We started getting ready for Christmas this weekend, and are all remembering how magical this time of year is! Getting down all the decorations and toys from the attic has gotten us so excited for the season ahead! We have so much to look forward to!

 

There’s the beautiful Nativity to learn about (thank you Mor-Mor!)…

Time to bring out the hand-knit winter hats and the snowman jammies to keep us toasty warm…

December 1st seems SO far away when there’s chocolate to be eaten (Thanks Nannie & Opa!)…

Time to help daddy hang the lights on the house…

Of course it’s time to get the tree up, with it’s beautiful new tree skirt (thank you Grandma Nancy!)…

It’s even time to start posing for the Christmas card picture… mommy’s breaking it up into a few “short” photoshoots this year to see what she can get…

I’m a BIG girl now!

I’ve been sitting on the potty lately just trying it out like my big sister, and I finally went on it tonight! (Too bad mommy didn’t brush my hair for my first potty pictures…) Woohoo! I’m growing up so fast!
