HAPPY THANKSGIVING


Elias had to dress up as an Indian or a pilgrim for his Thanksgiving feast party. I took a large white t-shirt and stained it with tea. The head band is old pantyhose with two feathers tied in the back. The tomahawk is card board with tinfoil for the blade. Not very fancy, but very impressive to a 6 year old. Emma was very excited to get in on the action and join the party.
And now I'm free. This is the first year I've been so tied to a school schedule. I didn't realize how much of a break this week would feel like without Elias in school. Normally Mondays are one of our homeschool days, but today I got to dicate my own agenda. I'm hoping for a clean and picked up house, laundry done and put away, and some quality family time by the end of the week.

Great job with the costume! I think the tomahawk might be unpolitically correct- so it's good he's not in a public school. Emma looks so pretty, and I love her haircut! I wish Roxy would let me do hers like that.
