Thanksgiving is probably the second most favorite holiday in our family. Christmas is first, of course. But, after that Turkey Day tops the list. Mainly for the food.
My children are hobbits. Which means they love to eat. Which means that Turkey Day with all their favorite foods tops the list.
It’s also the day that we see family, relax, watch movies, and count our blessings. That’s how I celebrated Thanksgiving as a child. It’s how my children celebrate Thanksgiving. And, Lord willing, it’s how my children’s children will celebrate Thanksgiving.
And while you, like I, may have been pinning and bookmarking all kinds of cutesy fun to do on Thanksgiving, you, like I, may not be able to keep up with all your best laid plans. I know I struggle with this. Major Big Time.
I dream big dreams of fun stuff to do with the kids and then something gets in the way.
So this year, with my sister’s help, I put together a Thanksgiving fun booklet. Yes, yes, I did.
