The boys' school celebrated Thanksgiving with a Feast at school last Friday night. The kids helped prepare the veggies - snapping beans, husking corn, and peeling carrots and potatoes. Ryan did a whole bowl of beans and then he helped with the corn. Connor was apparently a master carrot peeler. They were both so excited to have been able to help. Ryan told me afterwards any time I wanted to cook green beans that he could do the whole bowl of beans all by himself. :)
While we were eating Kevin glanced over and happened to notice that the kids had make turkeys and written on each feather something they were thankful for. This was Ryan's:
My Halloween bag
The candy I got at Halloween
The cars my daddy gets
The planes my daddy buys
Needless to say I had a good chuckle. Clearly Daddy has been feeding them too much candy, and sneaking cars and planes behind my back (we had an agreement - NO MORE CARS) as our house was being overrun by every hotwheel and Cars car known to mankind.
Connor's made me smile as well.
Though I suspect he might just have been coached to add one or two of them to the list. :) Ryan's no doubt were all his own. :)
