Happy Thanksgiving!


I had in mind to post something to do with Thanksgiving each day this week, but as fate would have it, I was extremely busy. My youngest daughter Allison did a little research here and there for me and came up with a couple of really good Thanksgiving crafts, some good Thanksgiving recipes you might want to try and a little information on Thanksgiving Traditions.

From our family to yours we want to wish you very happy Thanksgiving and offer you these ideas for the holiday season! Have a great one!

THANKSGIVING CRAFTS:

Finger Puppet Pilgrims

What You'll Need:
  • Construction Paper: white, brown, black and yellow
  • 2 short or one long cardboard tube (s)
  • Scissors
  • Glue Stick
  • Peach and pink crayons
  • Black marker
  • Pattern (Click HERE)
How To Make It:
  1. Color a 2" X 6' section of white construction paper with the peach crayon. Cut out section then cut in half. You should now have 2 - 2" x 3" peach pieces.
  2. Glue the peach strips to the top of the 2 cardboard tubes. These will be the faces.
  3. Cover the remainder of the cardboard tubes with black (man) and brown (woman) construction paper, overlapping the peach face a little.
  4. Cut 2 collars from white construction paper using pattern. Glue to top of shirt, wrap around and glue in place.
  5. Cut woman's hair from yellow construction paper using pattern. Cut man's hair from brown construction paper, cut a strip about the width of the woman's hair. Wrap around the back of the cardboard tubes, peach paper in the front, and trim if needed. Glue in place.
  6. Cut hat from black paper and bonnet from white using patterns. Cut a small strip of brown for the hatband, glue and trim. Cut small strips of white paper for the buckle. Glue to the hatband. Glue hat to man's head and bonnet to woman's head.
  7. Use pink crayon to add rosy cheeks.
  8. Use black marker to add eyes and smile.
  9. Insert fingers into bottom of tube and play with your puppets!

Styrofoam Turkey

What You'll Need:
  • A 2 13/16" X 3 7/8" Styrofoam egg
  • Brown paint
  • 2 googly eyes
  • Pipe cleaners: 2 red, 2 orange, 1 yellow
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Paint brush
  • Serated knife
To Make Your Thanksgiving Styrofoam Turkey Craft:
  1. Use a serated knife to carve the very bottom off the styrofoam egg so it will set up.
  2. Paint the egg brown and let it dry. (tip: setting the egg on a dixie cup is a great way to let the egg dry)
  3. Glue two googly eyes onto the egg.
  4. To make the feathers, cut a pipe cleaner in half, twist the ends together to make a feather shape and insert it into the back of the egg. Make 2 - 3 "feathers" of each color.
  5. Cut a small piece of an orange pipe cleaner off and insert under the googly eyes for a beak.
  6. Cut a small piece of red pipe cleaner and insert as a waddle next to the beak.
  7. Cut an orange pipe cleaner into quarters. Take two of the pieces and bend in half and insert into the bottom of the egg as feet.
THANKSGIVING RECIPES:

Pumpkin Gingerbread Trifle

Ingredients:
  • 2 (14 oz. ) packages of gingerbread mix
  • 1 (5.1 oz.) box cook-and-serve vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 (30 oz. ) can pumpkin pie filling
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 teaspoon ground cardamon or cinnamon
  • 1 (12 oz.) container of frozen whipped topping
  • 1/2 cup gingersnaps, optional
Directions:

Bake the gingerbread according to package directions; cool completely. Meanwhile, prepare the pudding and set aside to cool. Stir the pumpkin pie filling, sugar, and cardamon into the pudding. Crumble 1 batch of the gingerbread into the bottom of a large, pretty bowl. Pour 1/2 mixture over the gingerbread, then add a layer of whipped topping. Repeat with the remaining gingerbread, pudding, and whipped topping. Sprinkle the top with crushed gingersnaps, if desired. Refrigerate overnight. Trifle can be filled in punch bowl.

Favorite Green Bean Casserole

Ingredients:
  • 2 (16 oz.) packages of cut green beans
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 (10.75 oz.) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 (4 oz.) jar diced pimento peppers, drained
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 (2.8 oz.) can French-fried onions
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, place the green beans in water, and bring to a boil. Cover, and cook 6 minutes, under tender. Remove from heat, and drain.
  3. In an 8 X 8 inch baking dish, mix together the cream of mushroom soup, milk, pimentos, and pepper. Stir in the green beans. Sprinkle with French-fried onions.
  4. Bake, uncovered, 30 - 40 minutes in a preheated oven, until the casserole is hot and bubbly in the center.
THANKSGIVING TRADITIONS:
  • Turkey and Trimmings. From the first Thanksgiving to today's turkey burgers, turkey's are an American tradition dating back centuries. According to the National Turkey Association, 95 percent of American's eat turkey at Thanksgiving. Regional twists offer variations on the traditional roasted bird, including coffee rubbed turkey from Hawaii, salt encrusted turkey from New England, and deep fried turkey from the south.
  • Time Out for the Pigskin. Throughout the United States, football on Thanksgiving Day is as big a part of the celebration as turkey or pumpkin pie. Dating back to the first intercollegiate football championship held on Thanksgiving Day in 1876, traditional holiday football rivalries have become so popular that a reporter once called, Thanksgiving " a holiday granted by the State and the Nation to see a game of football."
  • Parading Around. The first American Thanksgiving Day Parade was held in 1920, organized by Gimbel's Department Store in Philadelphia, not Macy's as most people believe. The NYC Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade actually began in 1924, and has grown into an annual event of balloons, bands, and floats, enjoyed by more than 46 million people each year in person and on TV.
  • Making a Wish. Does your family fight over the wishbone from the Thanksgiving turkey? Known as a "lucky break" the tradition of tugging on either end of a fowl's bone to win the largest piece and its accompanying "wish" dates back to the Etruscans of 322 B.C. The Romans brought the tradition with them when they conquered England and the English colonists carried the tradition on to America.
  • Giving Thanks. Last, but certainly not least, Thanksgiving is about giving thanks for the people and blessings of the past year. From pre-meal prayers to providing holiday meals to the homeless, the holiday is truly a celebration praise and thanksgiving.

I did not know anything about Thanksgiving till I started blogging. I like your note regarding the Traditions so it gives me an idea of what is happening over there. I know about the food because there is a surfeit of it all over!!!!

A very happy thanksgiving to you and your family.

My name is Jennifer martins, from USA I never believed in love spells or magic until i met this spell caster once when i went to Africa in February this year on a business summit. I meant a man who’s name is DR.madurai he is really powerful and could help cast spells to bring back one’s gone, lost, misbehaving lover and magic money spell or spell for a good job or luck spell .I’m now happy & a living testimony cos the man i had wanted to marry left me 3 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down cos our relationship has been on for 6years. I really loved him, but his mother was against us and he had no good paying job. So when i met this spell caster, i told him what happened and explained the situation of things to him. At first i was undecided, skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. And in 7 days when i returned to usa, my boyfriend (now husband) called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married. I didn’t believe it cos the spell caster only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do. Well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid, and my husband also got the new job and our lives became much better. His email is maduraitemple@yahoo.com

I email drkabakaspiritualtemple@gmail.com the spell caster and i told him my problem and i did what he asked of me, to cut the long story short. Before i knew what was happening my husband gave me a call and told me that he was coming back to me in just 2days and was so happy to have him back to me. We have two kids together and we are happy with ourselves.

I was having problem with my boyfriend so I decided to contact him because I love my boyfriend so much. he left home and said he is not interested in the relationship anymore for no reason, i was in shock. I contacted DR ISIKOLO and he told me that my boyfriend would come back to me in the next 2 days, DR ISIKOLO made a love spell and this made my boyfriend eye open to see how much we love each other and he came back home. As I write this testimony, I am the happiest girl on earth. my boyfriend and I are living a happy life and our love is now stronger than it was before we broke up.

I was married for 13 years. My marriage has been deteriorating for some time so it was bound to unravel. I was his loyal, faithful supportive and trusting Wife. He had an additional wild side that went out of control. The last incident is when I found out that he was having an affair 2 weeks before our 14th wedding anniversary. Out of the blue my husband just sprung the divorce talk on me. I was so hurt and being an independent woman, I thought I could cope with being single. It was so hard to move on so i had to reach out for help online. Our marriage and family therapists thought that "something" was not right about my husband. I went online and i found out about Dr. Mkuru and his good spell work reviews. I ordered for a Love spell on his website. 24 hours later in the morning around 09:34am I was totally shocked on how my Husband called me telling me how much he missed me. His spell worked on me so fast and my husband has been so loving, Natural and I'm having a happy marriage after using his love spell. If you are in a loveless and unhappy marriage that cannot be salvaged, believe me...There is light at the end of this tunnel. You can reach him on his contact details. email: isikolosolutionhome@gmail.com. You Can Also Call Him Or Whatsapp him on +2348133261196. his direct website: https://isikololovetemple.com

I felt the same way as any other woman with heartbreak and What would I have done if not for DR. Eromonsele,I am 38 years old and I have a son. Unfortunately almost a year ago his father broke up with me because of a mistake I made and I really need him back. He is the best thing that has ever happened to me and I want our family to be complete again, I want to spend the rest of my life with him. I read a convincing testimony online that Dr Eromonsele helped a woman in a similar situation and I contacted him for help. I grew up with my parents divorced and I don't want that for my son and I miss my husband so much and just want our family to be whole again I want the love of my life back and I can honestly say that because he is the only man I have ever truly loved with all my heart. So I seek help from Dr Eromonsele and he responded to me and he cast a love spell for me which I use in getting back my husband and I am happy and grateful to him for helping me and I want you all to also have the opportunity I had also, Dr Eromonsele is the only true help I have ever known. Good luck” you can contact the great man on.. dr.eromonsele@gmail.com or WhatsApp him on +2349079308479
