I'm so pleased with how this turned out it almost negates the fact that I cut the bejeebers out of my left index finger while cutting the cheese for the flags!
Thanksgiving has always been particularly special for me. My mom was our family historian for years before she passed and she was especially proud of our Mayflower families (especially Edward Doten in spite of him being a bit of a trouble maker!). I've told John a little about who he came from in those regards but I don't know how much he paid attention. He is 5, after all :)
The pilgrim and ship body are bologna sandwiches. The masts are swiss cheese on toothpicks. The ocean is a cut blue raspberry Airhead strip with cheese cracker sharks swimming underneath. Grapes make it lunch!
