Old lady who swallowed a pie story--my mom
So, let me explain our Thanksgiving schedule. We eat around 2 p.m. People are welcome to come earlier and snack on the horderves. At 2 we eat, clean up, and then we have story time. My friend Robyn has a flannel board story about the first Thanksgiving that she always shares with her blessing mix. My mom has a fun picture story that goes with the book "I know an Old Lady who Swallowed a Pie" by Alison Jackson. It is cute. Check it out if you haven't read it before. Then it is football or volleyball time depending upon the weather and who is here and what mood they are in. Usually after the football/volleyball game which occurs in our yard we have pie. There is never enough room for pie right after dinner. You have to wait a while for everything to settle and to get hungry again before you have pie so you can enjoy it! After pie we watch a movie--usually a newly released Disney--I think it will be Monsters University this year. After the movie we usually snack on whatever is left and then everyone heads home happy, full, and thankful for the day. It is a great day, and my kids look forward to it every year--they are super good helpers to get everything ready. They love a party as much as anyone! So, Thanksgiving here we come!!
