The cousins were back together today to celebrate Thanksgiving! As usual, there was much running, jumping, and playing hide-and-seek. 🙂
Continuing our tradition, Alan decorated the Christmas tree as soon as he got home from Grandma Debbie’s house. He did a great job decorating on his own!
11/23/18 Update: Alan and I spent Black Friday shopping for some new ornaments and Christmas decorations at Target. Alan convinced me to string lights up on our living room and bedroom windows this year. We also went to the local Goodwill store so that Alan could make his annual donation.
On Tuesday of this week, Alan’s class held a Thanksgiving Parade at Millridge. Alan’s float featured an elephant, which is the mascot of Blue House!
Then, today, Alan saw the Ohio State Marching Band perform in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. He liked that they were followed by a Chase (from Paw Patrol) float. 🙂
Thanksgiving was highlighted today by Alan bringing his Thunderhollow criss-cross race track to share with his cousins. They loved crashing cars on the race track. The kids also enjoyed a game of hide and seek with Grandma Debbie!
When we got back home, Alan decorated his new, much taller Christmas tree. After realizing one string of lights wasn’t enough for the new tree, we went to Target to get another set. We also picked up some Cars 3 ornaments, as the year of Cars 3 continues on!
For his Thanksgiving homework assignment, Alan disguised a turkey as a construction worker to avoid being spotted on Thanksgiving. It was a throwback to the same preschool homework assignment for Mrs. Davisson’s class, when Alan also disguised a turkey as a construction worker. Alan’s interests haven’t changed since then!
Today Alan celebrated Thanksgiving with Tyler, Carleigh, and the rest of the family! He loves seeing his cousins and playing tag with them. Tomorrow they’ll be back for more, as the cousins are having a sleepover at Grandma Debbie’s!
Today was a rainy Thanksgiving, so we couldn’t play baseball like we did last year. But we did continue our tradition of decorating our Christmas tree on Thanksgiving. Alan was in charge of putting up all of the decorations around the apartment as well. 🙂
Second Kindergarten family homework project of the year! Last time we traced our feet (see 9/23/16 post), and this time we traced our hands. And had to make it Thanksgiving-themed.
Alan was the main architect. He calls it, “Turkeys on the go!” 🙂
Taking advantage of the unseasonably warm weather today, Alan and I hit baseballs at the park. We also walked over to the Buckeye tree and continued to fill up our jar! Alan’s showing off the jar – and his hideout – above.
He also decorated his Christmas tree after Thanksgiving dinner!
We might’ve just celebrated Thanksgiving tonight, but Alan has already moved on to his favorite holiday…Christmas! Today he decorated his very own Christmas Tree for the first time. As pictured above, he was very proud of his accomplishment!
