Thanksgiving Feast

We had our Thanksgiving celebration at school today. Jack & Emma made and modeled turkey drumstick hats. Truth be told, Emma was quite mortified to have to wear it as the paraded across campus, and removed it rather quickly after their songs.
We made bird feeders with pine cones, peanut butter and seed, and made turkeys using only a pretzel, potato, and a few odds and ends, with peanut butter as glue. Jack wanted to eat his (gross), and got upset when I told him no... The photo below is his reaction.
Grandma CC and I had a nice turkey dinner with them, and enjoyed our morning.
Enjoy the photos & video!

I was tagged by Carol, which means I have to post 6 random things about me for all the world to see. Hmmm....

1. We were thinking of getting a dog for Jack ~ and then I found out I was pregnant, so now we are having a baby instead!

2. I am addicted to Butterfinger (minis or fun size, never a regular sized bar).

3. Our cat, Buto, is my favorite cat ever. We rescued her from a shelter, where she had lived her entire first year before we found her.

4. I love eBay and Craigslist. I have gotten so many fantastic deals, and am able to get what I want, without feeling guilty for paying full price.

5. I am really anal. I know - shocker! I need everything to be in its place. I can usually go a couple days with mess now that I have kids, but then I HAVE to organize and put stuff away. I don't like "stuff" and am not a saver.

6. I still miss Miami Beach sometimes. Not the people, or the crowds, but the beauty - of the houses, landscaping, the ocean - and the tropical smell.
