Latkes- you can't celebrate Hanukkah without some yummy potato latkes!

We read this book several times leading up to Thanksgiving Day and it inspired us to leave our own feast for the beasts that live near us. Before heading out to dinner yesterday we selected some items from our exploration station to set out for the neighborhood creatures. We included cracked corn, popcorn kernels, Indian corn, walnuts and a sliced apple.
We made some guesses as to which would get eaten first. Eva thought the Indian corn would be the first to go. My guess was the apple.
Amazingly, nothing has been eaten. Either all the animals have hibernated/migrated or we have some very picky eaters living around here! We hope all of you had your fill to eat yesterday and were able to enjoy time with your friends and family. We will be back on Sunday with our Hanukkah theme all set to begin!

We hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving (or a very happy Thursday for those of you outside the States)! Be sure to take a moment to today and count your blessings and may they be many! I know mine are and I count all of you among them. But here are my greatest blessings- my wonderful husband who provides us with a life so full of love, laughter and happiness, and the sweetest little girl, my Eva, who brings us more joy than our hearts ever thought possible.
