our little pilgrim

Today Grace had her Kindergarten Thanksgiving party.

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned it on here before, but we love Grace’s school.  It was recently named the best school in Denver and in the state of Colorado.  She loves her teacher and we’ve bonded with almost all the families in her class.  It’s fabulous.  So, because of this, we thoroughly enjoyed going to her school for the Thanksgiving party.  Parents are SUPER involved at her school, so the party meant mingling with our new friends and eating pumpkin pie.

Speaking of pie…I made my first pumpkin pie (ever) for the party.  I used this recipe from Whole Foods and was pleased with the ease of the recipe and the way the pie turned out.  I made one pie with canned pumpkin and one with fresh.  Both were great.  You should try it for the holidays!!  🙂

We’re headed back to school tomorrow for an assembly recognizing kids who read a Million Words.  Grace worked REALLY hard to finish in time and we’re looking forward to going.  I’ll post pics tomorrow.  🙂
