Thanksgiving is a new holiday for our exchange students, as it is a uniquely American holiday. So we like to make sure that they get the full experience. This year we went to my parents house for a couple of days where our exchange student met my nieces and nephews (they loved him if you can’t tell from the pictures), had traditional Thanksgiving dinner at my parents house, and then the next day had Thanksgiving/Christmas dinner and gift exchange at my sisters houses (with all of her kids). They had a new kitten which we all enjoyed playing with (see if you can find him in the photographs). We took Henry to Walmart on Thanksgiving night so that he could experience Black Friday and I think that he thought that we were all crazy (and he is probably right!).
I selected the background paper for this spread from a Fall paper book, and I cut the turkey out using my Cricut machine. In order to give the wing a letter more definition I put a thick sticky tab underneath the wing to make it stick out from the page. I did something that is not usual for me – I journaled on this page. I did this because there were so many different things happening on this page, and I thought it would be important to explain them.
