Turkey Handprints and Operation Christmas Child.....

The kids love doing crafts so this Thanksgiving we did Turkey hand prints!!
They thought it was so much fun to get their hands painted!
Hayden getting his hands ready!!
Dax thought it tickled!!
After we did the print, we added legs and a beak to make it look like a turkey!!
Another special thing we do every Fall is Operation Christmas child. I take all the kids to the store and we pick out fun stuff to put inside shoe boxes. These boxes are sent to children in the world who might not get much Christmas! I've done it since Grace was little! They look forward to it every year!
Our boxes went to Honduras and Chad this year!!
