WW: Have a Happy Thanksgiving! {Linky}

What do you plan on doing for Thanksgiving? Usually we go to the Apel side of the family in Missouri, but this year it didn't work out. We'll go to my aunt's house. There will be lots of football and food.

Daddy just got done setting up an art show. He sold two pieces! Then around the New Year he has to go take the art show down.

Speaking of art, Mica brought this painting home from school:


I thought for 1st grade there was a lot of detail! It's watercolor and crayon.

Then Mica helped me make turkey cookies this weekend. We didn't make very many of them. I thought they'd look good on a plate for Thanksgiving.


What I'm making for Thanksgiving:
  • Cranberries with a twist. I'm adding pomegranate in with the cranberries. Here's the recipe. Only I'm not adding all the spices. For some reason cinnamon doesn't sound good to me in that mixture.
  •  I'm making a Pumpkin Pie Crisp because my oldest sister says I have to. ;) 
  • I'm making acorn squash turkey. Kind of like my apple turkey. Only it will be a squash. I'll probably core out most of it and have the squash turkey resting on the squash. Then I'll add wooden skewers with grapes and chunks of cheese on them. (I'm thinking).
  • Then Daddy is making Brussels sprout dish.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family Alissa! You plan to have some yummy food prepared. Thanksgiving is not celebrated in Jamaica but I think it is wonderful to have such a day. I have a lot of relatives and friends in the U.S.A. Congratulations to your father and son! They are artists for sure!

Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving. I like the turkey made with the fruit...... something I can eat.

Everything looks awesome, and you're right the painting/crayon picture does have a lot of detail. That's my favorite kind of art, the one's the kids did. :)

Happy Thanksgiving!

I do think Mica is talented! He is a terrific artist at such a young age. My daughter started very young with her art work also, and she is a wonderful artist now. I hope he keeps enjoying art! The cookies look delicious too.
