Provisions and Preparations

Today has been about gathering provisions and making plans for tomorrow's Thanksgiving celebration. Though it will be just four of us (our three plus my father-in-law, whom Amelia calls Papa), I am aiming for a delicious and traditional meal and a warm-feeling, kid-and mama-crafted setting. Once again, being in a school environment allowed me access to super fun stuff: a die-cut machine. I used my own scrapbooking paper to make leafy cutouts and strung them together from left-over yarn from you-know-where ;) Turkey and baby chick cutouts were glued to cut paper towel rings to create placecards/napkin rings. Also, there are a few speckled pumpkins and one giant squirrel thrown in for good measure.

Now, let's cross fingers that I don't need to go to the grocery store for the third time today!
