Each year the kindergartens help decorate the "Mayflower" and sail down through the school circle. Mason watched Paris and Alex and this year was his turn:)
Mason is in front in the blue shirt.
Some Indians were waiting to the welcome the ship at Plymouth Rock... and it was Alex's class! Alex is in blue and his teacher, Ms. Gates is waving. All of Alex's friends were yelling "Hi, Mason!" It was really cute.
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with the Notman family yesterday!! Here we are at the table about to eat.
Before digging in they introduced us to an English tradition, "Christmas Crackers", which are little wrapped packages. Each person gets one, then you turn to the person to your left and they pull it apart with you. The packaged "cracks" open and inside are hats, toys and jokes. It kept us all entertained throughout the meal. We will definitely be carrying on the tradition at our house for Christmas:)
Alex and Patrick
Paris and Jennifer. They coordinated beforehand to have their favorite stuffed dogs join them for the Thanksgiving celebration:)
Robert played an intense soccer match against Alex, Mason and Patrick. The final score 10-8, the little boys won.
All the boys meant business and were knocked down many times... this was Robert's turn on the ground:)
Jennifer and Paris danced in the kitchen during the soccer game.
And what's a Thanksgiving without snow cones on the back porch!
Jennifer taught the kids how to make turkey napkin rings-
... and Gill organized a treasure hunt throughout the house.
