Around the House→ We put our Christmas tree up yesterday! Our tree has never been up this early, but we were anxious to see if it was going to fit in our family room with our new couch. It fits. I have been inspired by others to finally do a Jesse Tree. I have had the ornament kit for a couple of years, but this year will be the year. I have an idea on how to keep the kids involved each night with the ornaments, without having six of the same ornament on a little Jesse Tree.
Around the Kitchen→ We were busy in the kitchen yesterday. We made rice pudding (for Korea week) in the rice cooker, I think this might be my favorite rice pudding recipe. We made crock pot applesauce, well, Bob cut up the apples and I dumped the stuff in and turned on the crock pot ~ delicious! I also made two pumpkin pies. I’m not sure why I made them two days before Thanksgiving, but I did and they were good.
Feast Day→ While Thanksgiving is not an official “Feast Day” in the Catholic church, most of us will certainly be feasting! For the last couple of years I have been making cranberry sauce. I am not a huge fan of fresh cranberries and the cranberry sauce from the can is just plain disgusting, but I tried this recipe using fresh cranberries and have been hooked ever since. Enjoy!
Basic Skills Unit: We read more Korea books as well as some Thanksgiving books.

Along the Alphabet Path: - K is for Korea. Aside from our Korean stories and rice pudding, we didn’t do too many Korean things. I searched for a simple Korean craft to do, but I didn’t have much luck. I also wanted to purchase the traditional game Yutnori but couldn’t find a source. So, we made play dough and brought out the A-K cookie cutters and they used their Do a Dot Stamps for some letter K review. Here are a few of the books we read over the last couple of weeks:
K is for Korea
Look What We’ve Brought you from Korea
Waiting for Mama
The Royal Bee
The Trip Back Home
The Princess and the Beggar
I am thankful for....Thanksgiving!
