the finished wreath.
the girls were able to easily rip up the vinyl I used to cover the stools. so I bought some fabric for outdoor funriture. It is not rippable, but still washable, so hopefully this will last longer.
Ben worked friday, and took Kara with him, so Kiersten got to spend the day helping me get things ready. Ben needed to leave by 9, so I had to get all the christmas shopping done by 8. I got most of what we needed. So I will have lots of wrapping to keep me busy. Here is kiersten after eating a treat she got for being so helpful with cleaning.
She loved helping me bake. Here she is smashing crackers for a cheesecake crust.
and here she is helping me with pumpkin pie.
smelling the baked pie. When she woke up this morning she asked if she could have some for breakfast.
Ben picked up Kerry from the airport on his way home from work. The girls have been having so much fun with their Papa. Here they are doing a puzzle together.
getting ready for dinner. We like to eat ham for thanksgiving, so someone has to dress like a turkey.
the crew ready to eat. Karalee set the table. I helped her roll the napkins.
Kara and I made these place cards from ice cream cones. I wanted to fill them with candy corn, but couldn't find any, so I used runts instead. It's hard to think of ideas that will be cute, but that the kids can help with. This one was pretty successful.
full of rice cereal, and ready for a nap.
Even papa wore the turkey hat!
