Our Thanksgiving Feast

Last Thursday night, we hosted a Thanksgiving Feast. This was a project that my children needed to complete for their school (we homeschool and use Learning Adventures curriculum). We worked for several days planning the meal, the costumes and the games. We made decorations
, made and sent out invitations,  created and printed the programs, 


and made the costumes.

 Finally the night arrived!

The table was set.

The guests arrived, all in their costumes!


Notice my two Indians and one Pilgrim:


We had a wonderful meal:



We ate turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, rolls, and vegetables. And, of course, for dessert...

 Pumpkin Pie! Made by:

My oldest dd!

We also ate Pilgrim Hat cookies, which were made by me (Emily-Friend, where were you?? I needed your cute cookies!! Or, at least your help, lol. )


After supper we played traditional Pilgrim games, and took a few more pictures.

 Don't you just love this hat?!



We had a very fun night!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. We, like the Pilgrims, have so much to  thank God for!!
