turkey day??

We had such a wonderful day together - even without all the traditional fanfare, we made our own special memories and unique contributions to Thanksgiving abroad. We made pumpkin & apple pies from scratch, as well as sweet potatoes & coffee ice cream! Asia made mini-cinnamon rolls from the extra pie-crust dough. She loved that! Daddy taught the original pilgrimage story to America, and the girls listened intently. We also shared dinner with another foreign family here - which was wonderful, despite the turkey-less dinner. Our tummies were quite happy.

For a fun home-school project - we made a 'Thankful Tree' filled with all the things we were thankful for. If you look closely, you can see all the different things they mentioned! It's very sweet. They love any project with glue & scissors. Who doesn't? :)

And here is Sydney, content with a ball. She is such a joy!

We hope your holiday festivities are filled with sweet memories & deliciousness too.
