Thanksgiving Time Already?

We are less than two weeks away from Thanksgiving and I just can’t believe how fast this fall has gone by.  My husband and I purchased a house late September and finally got the keys this past week.  I am SO thankful to be done with the home purchasing process and have a place to raise our daughter that we love.  Buying a home certainly has its up and downs, it’s a long drawn out rollercoaster ride but is so gratifying once you have the keys in your hand and can pull into a driveway that’s yours.  Here’s our perfect little home.
 And here’s my daughter welcoming me home.  She’s already left her mark as you can see, smearing that cute little face all over the front door. 
Laina has already explored our backyard and found some leaves to play in.  New home in the fall= a welcome home present of raking leaves! I better purchase a rake ASAP!
And here’s my little girl enjoying a must-have of mine: a kitchen island!  It’s where I do a lot of my work for Teachers Pay Teachers and allows me to work and watch her at the same time.  Always multi-tasking as a mom.  Plus I just can’t wait to start baking with this little one on it.  Speaking of baking…Have you seen my Thanksgiving Feast Cut and Paste Set? 
 I just love this set for talking to the little ones about what foods we eat at Thanksgiving time.  You could make individual projects with your students or what I’d personally do is make them yourself, then laminate them, and use them as props with stories that talk about Thanksgiving Dinner, the traditions, and foods.  By laminating them you can use them for years to come, such a time saver!

I also created my Thanksgiving Cut and Paste Set!  These Pilgrims and Indians are about 2 feet tall when you are done making them but can be made smaller by reducing the patterns on a copier.  No Thanksgiving Celebration is complete without talking about who the Pilgrims and Indians are, and don’t forget to mention the turkey! 
Happy “Soon to Be” Thanksgiving everyone, look out for Christmas Creations next!
