Highlights of a Happy Thanksgiving

We're playing a Thanksgiving game that we found in an activity book that uses candy corn as currency. So simple and so fun.

Helping in the kitchen and putting on his best "southern", Jacob: I'll get out the pee-cons, Y'all!

Mixing pumpkin pie ingredients, Alex: Mom, this looks like art!
Nicholas, licking his lips: It smells like art.

When many of the leaves I was making for the pumpkin pie crust weren't turning out, Zachary: Don't worry, Mom, nature works this way too. So many baby turtles hatch...so few make it to the ocean.

A breeze blew in, dropping temperatures by just the right amount to make baking pleasant and the kids chased leaves in the backyard all afternoon.
