The kids had special lunches the day before at school. They decided to dress up:
These days that means cowboy clothes. Alice was wearing a vest and t-shirt Mumsy got her in Jackson Hole years ago. She was sporting a bit of a bare midriff, but told me it was OK, so I let it go.
While they were having their Thanksgiving celebration at school, I was frantically moving all the furniture in our house with the help of some Smith cousins. We had a lovely but rarely used guest room, so I took all the furniture out and made a play room. That made it possible to remove most the kids' stuff from the family room. I also made them an art space in my craft room. Still haven't quite gotten everything back together, but I'm getting close.
