Little Explorers Thanksgiving

It is hard to believe that this is the Little Explorers 5th Thanksgiving celebration. As you can see some of our explorers aren't so little anymore. Where does the time go?
We had a wonderful turn out of families to celebrate our Thanksgiving. We were even blessed by a phone call from the Everett's who we wish were still with us, but have moved across the country. We miss you guys!

Above the girls are peeling potatoes to boil and mash. Yummy!

Below the guys are peeling apples for the apple crisp!

Having so many helping hands the peeling did go a lot faster. Caleb wasn't sure when he first arrived. He couldn't believe that the kids were going to make all this food. But boy did he have a great time once he got going.

Bekah gets a hand from her big sister. She loves to mix the juice. Just make sure someone is holding the lid on and that the spout is closed. She has been known to put her all into it and have juice go flying everywhere.

Hannah is making corn bread. It ended up a one gal job as Emmy decided to just supervise. Hannah was proud of how here corn bread turned out, and so was I. Liz you will have to share the recipe.

As you can see we had quite a spread. The food was yummy! And the company was great. Boy do we all have a lot to be thankful for.

The kids made turkey candle holders as the craft this year. They came out really cute. And while the mom's cleaned up the kids had fun playing all kinds of silly games.
