In Anticipation of Thanksgiving

American Thanksgiving is Thursday and, to prepare, we made fall gingerbread cookies.

The cookies are in the shapes of pumpkins, and we used leaf-shaped sprinkles in fall colors to decorate them. The kids couldn’t resist making them into jack-o-lanterns, though, so they look a little more Halloween than Thanksgiving. That’s okay.

After decorating our cookies, we settled in downstairs to watch the Peanuts Thanksgiving special. Our DVD has a bonus feature which is an animated retelling of the Pilgrims’ voyage and difficult first year in the New World. To get in the mood, we had a Peanuts Thanksgiving dinner:


popcorn, toast and jelly beans. (I was out of pretzel sticks.)
