I just wanted to share a few pictures of our Thanksgiving activities...

Our Thankful Tree is full of things like family, friends and books!

We had fun making some turkey friends with recycled materials.

We had a great time during the Book Character Parade!

If you haven't read If You Give a Mouse a Cookie yet, I definitely recommend it! There are many, many great books in this series by Laura Numeroff. You can find them on or at your local public library.
