Just a few days until Thanksgiving. The boys are excited...mostly because they get to eat pie and the fact that Christmas comes when Thanksgiving goes. They're kids.
We took the boys to see that movie Free Birds and they loved it and were all excited about Thanksgiving until Matt came home with our turkey. The boys were coloring at the table and then stopped when they heard that the giant package we had just put in the freezer was a turkey. Nathan declared that he wasn't going to eat his birdie friend and Tim wanted to know what was wrong with us that we would want to eat a disgusting animal.
Matt is excited to be handling the turkey this year. He's going to fry it. Nana is afraid that he is going to burn the house down so she invited him to come early and fry it in the backyard.
Our memory verse in school last week and this week (Mon and Tues) is Psalm 136:1. After we practice our verse and talk about what we are thankful for on that day we do a small craft and then get started on the book work.
