On Wednesday I got to celebrate Thanksgiving with Landry and his friends at preschool. I'm not going to lie...this is one of my favorite days of the year. I love getting the opportunity to see him with all of his little friends...and I love seeing the world through the eyes of preschoolers...they are so stinkin' funny!
His teachers did a great job of decorating their classroom and each child had a place setting...complete with Turkey Toes...a.k.a. candy corn. :)
To start the celebration off, the teachers passed out little tags for each child to write down what they were thankful for...and parents did one, too.
I could barely get the question out and Landry told me, "I'm so thankful and excited for my baby sister!"
Then the kids took their tag and hung it on the thankful tree. The teachers read each of the tags and it was so cute to hear the things that everyone was thankful for. Some were kind of generic: family, friends, love...and others were very specific: my blue blanket, my tablet, this party, and so on.
After the thankful activity the kids each made their own turkey using an apple as the body and then toothpicks and grapes, gummy bears, raisins, and marshmallows for the feathers, eyes, and feet.
They were absolutely adorable!
Landry's "tidy" personality showed in his creation...
every feather had to be the same and he wanted them in a nice, straight line.
Some of the other kids realized that the more feathers they put on...the more marshmallows and gummy bears they got...and some of them quickly turned into more of a porcupine than turkey. :)
All of the other children kept their turkey, so they could bring it home. Not Landry...he started to eat his as soon as it was finished. Apple and all!
The kids had turkey sandwiches, grapes, veggies, and juice as part of their feast...along with pumpkin and apple pie of course.
Here is Landry with one of his teachers, Miss Kim...
and his other teacher, Mrs. Sheehan!
As you can see...he absolutely LOVES pre-school and his teachers. In all of the things we are thankful for...one of them is most certainly his wonderful pre-school and ALL of the people who work there and show our little man so much love each and every day.
They truly are amazing!
