Just wanted to drop by to say hello. It's been awhile. I hope you & your family have a happy Turkey Day.

Tammy said...

Oh, great ideas and links!

If you want, please feel free to grab my button to add to this post, and come over and add your name to Mr. Linky- because this is exactly the kind of thing I'm looking for people to do when they participate in the monthly Home School open house!
(I'm also doing a giveaway with those that participate!)

My Open House post was all about the Thanksgiving theme, too!

Hope you join us!

Haha! Hi Rual Canadian - I'm so sorry I skipped a Monday! I wasn't really sure if anyone would notice. ;-) But I see at least one person was expecting a muffin recipe. :-) "Muffin Monday" will be back soon. For now, please try the Pumpkin Harvest cookies - they are so cake-like that they almost taste like muffins! :-)

Thanks so much for joining in! Your ideas are so worth sharing! I will enter your name into the giveaway on Friday! :)

I am going to wander through your links. Although our son does not like using the internet much.

Happy Thanksgiving! We made the thanksgiving chains a couple of years ago. It got so long we had to double it back across the room!

I just stumbled across your blog and see that you have lots to read.
I have added you to my fav's. Looks like lots of good recipes plus homeschooling stuff.
