Thanksgiving Desserts

For part of our lessons Wednesday we made desserts for everyone.  We made Pilgrim hats and Indian Tee pee's,(I know the Indians who are back east did not live in tee-pee's, it was just for the image and  5 and 7 year old).  And believe it or not the boys where so excited to show all our family on Thursday that they even waited to eat the desserts. They didn't take long to make and were very yummy.


Here is where I am going to Share those moments that just come whether it be night or day and we take the time to seize every opportunity-

Just a quick chuckle; I was putting my sons down for the night and little Bogan asked for another drink of water, and I said no you have already had a large glass and used the bathroom-he said oh yeah-so I chuckled and said haha your plans to stay awake have been foiled, and he said yeah Mom you folded my plans.

The other night my boys were playing with their legos and when I walked by, PT had made a pyramid and asked me where the little guy was that he had, I said I don't know? And then he showed me he had hidden it under the pyramid-I thought and then grabbed that moment- I went and got out the history book and opened up to the ancient Egypt era when pyramids were built and why it was similar to what he did. He was amazed at the significance. We read and read and learned about them for 2 days.
