Remember my picture of the little girl in the checkered dress? (https://marybt.wordpress.com/2009/10/14/edna-is-not-observant/) It was suggested that I keep her around for all the various holidays. She needs a name.
Here she is all ready for Thanksgiving!
I couldn’t figure out how to make a pilgrim hat, so I made her an Indian. They were at the first Thanksgiving too!
On a side note, does it seem like Thanksgiving gets skipped? I’ve had a really hard time finding Thanksgiving decorations. There’s tons of Halloween and of course Christmas. But Thanksgiving just isn’t the big money-maker that Halloween and Christmas are (I read once that Halloween is the 2nd biggest grossing “holiday” for retailers). So the poor Pilgrims and their Native friends get forgotten. Not by me. I don’t put up Christmas decorations until at least December 10th. I usually wait until the 15th. Wow, that was a stream of conciousness paragraph, huh?
