Gobble Fest 2014

Last year we started the tradition that the day before Thanksgiving we watch a Charlie Brown Thanksgiving and also eat his fest or pretzels, toast, popcorn, and jellybeans (conversational hearts instead for us). Phoebe did point this year that they also have pick ice-cream, so next year I will have to try and remember to add it our feast.
We also started off the month making our thankful turkey and Fergy family tradition, although I have to admit we never once used it. Instead once a week we color thanksgiving pgs and write under it what we are thankful for. I had to take pictures of  the two cutest preschool Indians, unfortunately Josh was sick and missed that day. This year The Tankful sheets were full of good Items we are thankful for!
Cami was thankful for: Our Home, Food, Our House, Wonderful Days (wumbumble days), Thankful, Flowers (smell & pretty), Family, Prayers, Summer, Outside, Mom & Dad, Our play ground, Swings (wings), Our neighbors, Soup, Rabbits, Snow, Trees, Warm apple sauce, Dinner, Preschool, Winter, Fruit, & the World

Cory & I even made a thankful tree as a party of a stay at home date where we also had some Martinelli's and watched Dutch (one of the only adult Thanksgiving Movies I  could think of).

This year was the the year the whole Fergy clan gathered for Thanksgiving. We had our feast at Dave's home and as always, we had a TON of food. Cory took the whole giant drumstick and managed to eat 4 more plates in total! The kids had a blast all sitting together playing and eating.
Sophie wore herself right out eating and playing and took a short afternoon nap in daddy's arms.
Before dessert was served and while the dishes were being cleaned grandma Fergy had a fun craft for the kids to make cute Christmas wreaths.
Thanksgiving was a ton of fun this year, it's always one of my favorite holidays! Unfortunately, all of us are pretty advent "black Friday" shopper so we had to cut the fun short to get to all our awesome deals.
The next evening our small family always celebrates Thanksgiving on our own so we have all the delicious leftover all week long. This year the sister missionaries joined us for dinner which they were pretty excited about since they helped me the day before Thanksgiving with making the rolls and dessert. They did an awesome job, because it was all FABULOUS tatsting. This was another fabulous holiday and I look forward to it every year!
