Gobble Gobble

Dane and Aidan had a "Thanksgiving Feast" this past Thursday at their preschool.  Aidan's class (FOURTEEN 2 and 3 year olds...please pray for his teachers) made turkey hats and special place mats and learned an interesting Thanksgiving song, complete with motions, sung to the tune of "I'm a Little Teapot".  It goes something like this:
I'm a little turkey
Short and round
Here are my tail feathers (this is where he turned around and made "tail feathers", but I don't have a picture of that)

Here is my sound:  Gobble Gobble!!
When I see a hunter...
Yes, it's true.
I'll be a turkey dinner for you!

All sung with big smiles and lots of gusto.  They wrapped up the feast with a lunch consisting of turkey sandwiches, fruit, pretzels, and juice boxes.  Just like what the Pilgrims ate.
Dane's class also had a special lunch planned.  First, he got to lead his class in The Lord's Prayer.
Then, he made a lunchmeat face, and proceeded to model the lunchmeat face on top of his own face.  So he probably smelled suspiciously of Oscar Meyer turkey for the rest of the day.
He definitely noticed that we had our camera with us...please note "Dane Eating Sandwich, Pose #1":

And "Dane With Sandwich, Pose #2":
He didn't have a mildly inappropriate turkey song to sing, so I had to resort to taking pictures of him eating.

I hope everyone has a great week!  I should be posting a few more pictures from my sister's wedding and also our "Thanksgiving story" that our pastor read in service today.
