Anyways along with learning all about pilgrims & the first Thanksgiving we had to do a few Thanksgiving games & crafts.

|We made a Garland with things we are thankful for.|
|We cut out & reviewed our shapes to create Indians.|
|My Monkey's Indians|
|& Cowboys finished Indians.|
We usually do an activity the Monday before Thanksgiving & make treats & notes to take around to those we are thankful for. We missed it this year because a few of my boys were sick.
Then later in the week, we packed up & made our journey to my hometown to have Thanksgiving with my family. Sad to say we were there for 4 days & I have hardly any pictures to show for it. To make it worse the ones I do have don't really have any people in them. Oops. I guess we will do better next year.
Because this year we still met with all of my dad's brothers & sisters & their kids this year we did it at a church. So there was room for everyone.

We ended up taking my two youngest home back to Grandma's house because my Monkey started to run a fever, but everyone else stayed late into the day playing games & visiting.
We had a great time & my hubby realized that it was the first time my sister & her kids have ever been to Thanksgiving with the family in our entire marriage. Which is almost 9 years, but I think it was even longer than that. So we had a great time & visit. We are so blessed & have so many things to be grateful for!
