Today Audrey's preschool is celebrating Thanksgiving with a big ole traditional feast (We brought juices boxes) and the kids were encouraged to come in costume! Everyone was very excited to see Audrey dressed in her Puyallup finest. Miss Marina (Audrey's teacher) told me that during the Thanksgiving lesson, the kids learned that Audrey's grandpa helped the Pilgrims find food. All the kids were suitably impressed.
Here is Audrey in all of her finery:
Actually, Indians did wear cowboy boots. Indians were the original cowboys, you know.
Besides the Pendleton blanket, the only "authentic" piece she is wearing is a necklace made of trade beads that my dad gave me. I was little hesitant to let her wear it, but it looked so nice, and I made a point to discuss the beads and their importance with her caregivers, so hopefully it will be used in a lesson today.
She got tired of carrying the blanket in the "proper" way pretty quickly.
And finally, here's Audrey with the Thanksgiving Budderball.
I will never get tired of calling Bud "Budderball." And I will never get tired of being ridiculously, overwhelming proud of my kids.
