We Give Thanks


The Thanksgiving holiday is finally here! Our daughters will be home soon, my brother and his family have arrived, and we even have a couple of boyfriends joining us this year. Meal preparation is well underway… we anticipate eighteen for our traditional turkey dinner. Other weekend activities include cutting down our Christmas tree, attending my cousin's annual Christmas party (complete with Yankee Swap), catching a movie, the usual leftovers feast and, of course, football. No wonder it's my favorite holiday.

I have so much to be thankful for this season, and so does my 7-year-old niece. Her "I am thankful for..." turkey  brought a smile to my face and I thought you might enjoy it, too.  In case you can't read the feathers:
- My dog
- My family
- A good teacher
- Art
- book fairs
I'd say my brother and sister-in-law are raising her right!

I hope you have a very Happy Thanksgiving. See you next week...
