"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates." Deuteronomy 4: 6-9

DeMoor Family Thanksgiving

We had the honor of hosting Thanksgiving for the DeMoor family this year. With everyone being in town for Robbie's wedding, we decided to have our Thanksgiving get-together on Sunday. We moved our furniture around a bit to make room for everyone in the dining room. Our Thanksgiving tables... With the help of my new friend pinterest, I found some great ideas to make the kids table lots of fun! Cups that looked like turkeys, rafia wrapped silverware, Happy Thanksgiving coloring pages, "I am so thankful for..." cards, and fall colored m&m's with cute little tags! Carson loved drinking lemonade out of his turkey cup! The DeMoor cousins... After a delicious meal, the kids played outside in the backyard, and the adults got to watch football and visit. We especially loved visiting with Uncle Larry who was here all the way from Phoenix! After playing, I set up an edible turkey craft for the kids to do. They made turkeys out of ritz crackers, vanilla icing, candy corn, hershey kisses, and caramel squares. They had fun making these cute little turkeys!
Carson had a little too much fun with the icing!! Carson's finished product,(notice the major sugar coma he is in after shoving multiple handfuls of candy corn in his mouth!)... After all of that sugar, the kids needed to run off some energy, so we walked to the Elementary school down the road and let them play on the playground. After our nice evening walk, we went back to our house for some delicious homemade desserts and coffee. What a great day with our family!
