Jia's Preperation for the Dinner Feast

Happy Thanksgiving to our family, friends and blog readers!

The Asian Pilgrim

As a Geography Teacher this picture makes perfect sense. The first native Americans crossed the land bridge from Asia...

Jia's class made honey butter, put it in little preseve jars with fabric and ribbon, she was so proud. (Notice her silver purse, she loves purses, has tons of them and they are all filled to the brim.

Jia and her honey butter. Notice her "big" tooth is almost in.

Giving Mom the butter, I am so thankful for this beautiful little girl.

The sisters and yes, yet another shot of the butter.

lighting the Thanksgiving candles

We thought it would be funny if we made the vegetarian carry the turkey to the table

Drew got the gravy right this time, no soy sauce or barbque sauce (note: last years horrible Christmas dinner)

Katie and her dog Benny Foo. We were watching a dog show today and Benny actually climbed up toward the tv and watched the dogs.

Happy Thanksgiving from Parnham South!

ps. it wouldn't be Thanksgiving without this one!

Jia calls Thanksgiving the "dinner feast". She is very confused and we confused her more by watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade and watching Santa Claus coming to town.
These pictures are of Jia's Pilgrim hat, her Native American outfit and her honey butter all of which she made in school. Her teacher is just wonderful with the kids!

Then, of course, we have our family's annual tradition of putting the raw turkey on someone. Days ago, Jia said "please don't put the raw chicken on me" but she got it anyway...poor kid!
