Autumn's Thanksgiving Program

At 10:45 today Noah, Aubrey, and I went to Autumn's preschool to watch her perform in her Thanksgiving Program. They walked out into the room all dressed up in their Thanksgiving Indian costumes adorned with a feathered hat and pasta necklace. Then they formed two lines. One by one each child said one or two things that they were thankful for. When it was Autumn's turn Miss Becky said "Ok Autumn, say it all!" Then she said "I am Thankful for my mom to take me to the park, my cousins so that I can play, that we can have a lot of fun, for my mom that she can spend a lot of time with me and take care of my puppy, and that my puppy can have a lot of fun with me." Then Miss Becky asked "Is that all?" She thought for a minute and shook her head, Yes. Everyone laughed. She is not shy that's for sure.After that they sang 5 short songs/poems about Thanksgiving. Her favorite song is "I'm glad I'm not a Turkey!" Then we ate "Stone Soup" that the kids made yesterday and other yummy foods. We had a great time. Here are the songs/poems she sang. Enjoy!

Gobble, Gobble
A turkey is a funny bird,

His head goes wobble, wobble.
And he knows One word,

Gobble, gobble, gobble.

Here Turkey, Turkey

(sung to I had a little turtle)
I saw a little turkey standing by a tree
it wobbled and it gobbled
then ran away from me!

Oh turkey, turkey, turkey

Please come out and play!
I promise I won't eat you
On Thanksgiving Day!

Oh, I’m glad I’m not a turkey

(sung to Did you ever see a Lassie?)

Oh,I'm glad I'm not a turkey
A turkey, a turkey

Oh, I’m glad I’m not a turkey
On Thanksgiving Day
They’ll stuff you and baste you
And then they will taste you.
Oh, I’m glad I’m not a turkey
On Thanksgiving Day

Gobble Gobble Gobble
Who said that?
Big old turkey round and fat
Gobble Gobble Gobble
What did he say?
Eat me on Thanksgiving Day!

Albuquerque Turkey

(Sung to Clementine)
Albuquerque he’s my turkey
Oh he’s feathered and he’s fine
He wobbles and he gobbles
And I’m awfully glad he’s mine.
He’s the best pet
You could ever get.
Better than a dog or cat.
Albuquerque he’s my turkey
And I’m awfully glad of that.
Albuquerque he’s my turkey
He’s so cozy in his bed
Because for Thanksgiving dinner
We had scrambled eggs instead.
