In addition to our delicious food, we were very busy this weekend with our new McPherson traditions. Some are new this year, and others are from last year.
We had a "T is for Turkey" tot school theme this week, complete with dressing up like a pilgrim. There were some conflicting ideas on how pilgrims dressed, so we incorporated all of them by using the buckle style hat, shawl, bright clothes, and a skirt. I'm assuming they dressed a little warmer. We then did a short rendition of the "first" thanksgiving day in an adorable skit.
Another part of our traditions (this one is from last year so it's officially a tradition now) is our Thanksgiving walk. This year, it was really warm out (in the low 50s), so no snow or winter coats!
And a very strange sight that we saw:
(hint: if you look closely, you can see 4 half-dead fish. We saw over 30 poor fish flopping around. We tried to save the first four, but then saw all the rest and realized it must be a part of the life cycle here at camp.)
Now that Thanksgiving is over, we are all patiently waiting for snow so that we can enjoy snowshoeing, cross country skiing, and sledding! And we need the snow to sled the Christmas tree to our house, so hopefully it comes by then!
