Happy Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving is one of those days for me that have the great potential to be depressing. I have always wished that I had a huge family with aunts, uncles, cousins running around, etc, but I just don't! Due to the unique nature of my family (divorces, people living far away, etc), Thanksgiving is a small affair. My parents live very far away and my husband's family consists of three people. The only way we will ever have the kind of Thanksgiving I imagine is if my siblings and I produce a ton of children and make it happen ourselves! We celebrated our traditional Thanksgiving feast last weekend (see previous post). So on the real day, I decided to make the most of it with whoever was available to stop by! Last weekend I learned that the pilgrims may have eaten seals and eagles at their feast!!! So I thought if the Pilgrims can eat seals and eagles, we can eat whatever the heck we want for our feast! That explains why the only turkey in our kitchen was this turkey made out of an apple, toothpicks, and marshmallows by Avery in her kindergarten class!Who needs fancy Martha Stewart centerpieces? Besides my apple marshmallow turkey, I also had Piper's toilet paper roll pumpkin!
See?? There are lots of ways you can spread love during the holiday season.
