This year we made homemade cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving. It was yummy and the girls had fun cooking as always!

Fort in the Woods




Dee & Keira were outside for hours the other day and finally came in SO excited telling me all about the Fort they made in the woods. Of course I had to go check it out... What a great job they did! They even have a bathroom area - and our kitten loves playing too (do you see her in the fort?)!

Martinmas Puppet Show and Shields

Did you know that November 11th is The Feast of St. Martin? More information on this saint can be viewed HERE

To celebrate, Dee and I performed a puppet show for the children and then we made cardboard shields. Here are some photos:














Tree of Thanks



Every Thanksgiving we make a Tree of Thanks... We gather branches during our nature walks before the holiday, color and cut leaves out and string them on our tree.

Everyone in our family writes something they are thankful for at any time leading up to Thanksgiving and when we have guests we ask them to do the same. It's become a really nice tradition and I hope to save all of the leaves from years past to put into a scrapbook that the girls can one day look back on.
