thanksgiving food

this year i wanted to try something different for the thanksgiving food that i was assigned. we did a green bean crockpot recipe, it had bacon, soy sauce and garlic powder with the green beans. it was awesome. i also did an apple snack and pilgrim hat cookies. yes, all the ideas were from pinterest.
 i had a super cute assistant making the pilgrim hats. we used peanut butter instead of frosting to stick the pb cups on the cookies.
 we used leaf sprinkles for the buckle.
 our apple snack with peanut butter/greek yogurt/honey dip.
 wouldnt you want to be served at starbucks by this adorable barista?
our thankful tree. we are still missing jake's thankful leaves (he's been sick) so we have even more to be thankful for.
im thankful for alot this year but my tops are:
my God who has been my helper and guide lately
my family
great school and teachers for my kiddos

audrey got to go on her first over-night camping trip this weekend with my parents, my brother and his wife, and my other brother. to say that she loved it would be stating it lightly. we have to get this girl camping more (just as soon as her brother settles down a bit and sleeps past 5 or 6 most mornings). jake and i did take miles out to visit and have dinner with the whole group but we took him home to sleep.
on the way to the campsite. miles was reading away in his seat. he picked out the book to take on the ride all on his own.
 audrey so excited to go camping.
 miles working away on the campsite.
 audrey was able to bring the class pet to read to on the camping trip.

what a cute girl looking out from my parent's pop-up camper.
