Well, Thanksgiving Day is fast-approaching! We have already started the festivities. Ruby had a Thanksgiving Feast at her school today and there was a little play in her room right before lunch. Gran and Paw Paw got to come up to be a part of it all, and we have had so much fun.
I volunteered to make Thanksgiving-themed cookies for Ruby’s class; I was so nervous because my first reply to the one who asked me was that I would order something and be sure to have it there. I thought ordering something would be great considering that I would have made sure they were really cute and appropriate for the Feast. I am quickly learning that homemade food is the preferred choice. Sooooo, after doing a little google searching, I found this cookie:
I thought it was so very cute, but I was unsure of my abilities. I am not, and never have claimed to be, Wonder Woman in the Kitchen. I can get by, but I am not savvy at any of it. BUT, these turned out great! I was very happy that I had tried something I wasn’t sure I could do. (even though I lost some sleep over it and when I was sleeping I was dreaming of all that could go wrong and nevermind the fact that I couldn’t find BRACH’S candy corns anywhere when I needed them……)
The end product didn’t look exactly like the picture, but they did turn out adorable—in my humble opinion. 🙂
Gran and Paw Paw helped us make the cookies. Paw Paw also had fun creating his own cookie.
Around 11:30 Ruby was having a play in her room before lunch, so we all headed up to the school. We were all very excited to see Ruby!
Molly smiled for only parts of the lunch. There was a person dressed as a Turkey roaming around and scaring her to death. I told Josh that there is no way I am paying good money for Disney anytime soon with a child who is deathly afraid of “characters.” I’d be forcing her to give Mickey a hug while she pee’d in her pants—-all because “we paid good money for you to have fun!” No thanks. We’ll just wait until she is 10 years old, I guess. Maybe we will be forced to have all of our vacations take place at the beach until Molly can handle the costumes. Hmmm, maybe this isn’t such a bad thing after all.
What a fun day! I love Ruby’s school. It is such a wonderful place to be. I am so thankful that she gets to go there this year!
