Thankful Turkey Time '13

We always start the first Monday n November with having a lesson on gratitude and then make our annual Thankful Turkey. Even though we have good intentions to use it every year it usually becomes more of a decoration than a useful gratitude jar. This kids really love it, however, so we continue to make it every November.
This year all the kiddos were old enough to participate to it was even more fun and chaotic to make.
This year we fit our hand feathers on a pickle jar, but Our cute little turkey's hands are continuing to grow and I fear one year we may have to use a small drum to fit all the not so little turkey "finger" feathers.

Chinet House Party

In the beginning of November I was chosen to hose another house part this time for Chinet bake-ware.
For my party I chose to have a luncheon and serve some of my favorite holiday classic sides and Costco chicken.
We didn't nearly have the turnout that RSVP that they were coming so I am really grateful to all those who did come, because we had a TON of food!!
This was a pretty easy house party as all I had to do was cook food and not plan any other games or activities, not to mention it tasted delicious and thanks to Chinet's new toss and Go bake-ware clean up was a breeze!
