Dare to be Thankful

We are participting in the Dare To Do It Yourself Party
over at Newly Woodwards.
Thanksgiving is hands-down my favorite holiday.
The crisp autumn air, the spirit of the holidays wafting,
the mashed potatoes with vegetarian gravy.
Let's face it,
it doesn't get much better than that!

I made this wreath out of a paper plate
and die-cut leaves fastened with everyday glue.
Those scrapbooking tools are getting some use!

One tradition we have is that every year
we take a picture of Lil' Guy with this Tommy Turkey
he made when he was a lil' sprout.
It's fun to see how he's grown each year.
You could do the same with grandkids, pets or your garden.

These are our dried apple guys.
They look like a barbershop triplet.
We made these the first year we started homeschooling,
and they sit on our shelf still.
Kinda weird, but,
we usually go for the unconventional.

Thanks Kim, for hosting such a great blog party!
