November and Thanksgiving

I am in charge of activity days in our ward.  This last activity we had a my house and had an educate/ manors lesson and had a tea party.  They each got to set there own table setting.  I think they had fun- here are some of the cute girls, including Jocelyn
 We had a huge snowstorm about 3 weeks ago. After school the whole neighborhood went sledding at the vacant lot on our street.  They had so much fun and did a few days until all the snow melted.
 This year we got to celebrate Thanksgiving with some of the Nelson clan at the family cabin in Midway.  It was a beautiful day and there was lots to be thankful for.    The food was amazing.  Thanks to all who made it happen and for many hands to prepare it.
Here is my little sisters Bryndy and Makenzie and my kiddos riding the Suri!
 My mom was in charge of the crafts and she went all out.  With about 4 to 5 different crafts for the kids and adults to do.  Here is Jocelyn making her "Give Thanks" sign.
 Ellie and Bryndy making a cute Thanksgiving pillow
 Kenzie and Caden and James making pilgrim hats.  We also made necklaces and cute paper turkey decoration.
