I had great intentions of writing out a list of things I’m thankful for this year. It’s so easy to just cruise on past Thanksgiving and jump right into Christmas. Eat a little turkey, have a glass of wine and some pumpkin pie, and then we’re decking the halls and riding in a one-horse open sleigh. Once again, I find that’s what I’m tempted to do.
But last night when I sat down to watch the season finale of Dancing With The Stars, I caught the tail end of the Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. And I couldn’t help but be struck by the sacrifices our forefathers made to bring us to this land and how much we have to be thankful for. So although I didn’t get a list written out like I’d hoped, I want to say that I am so very thankful for my family, our health, our home, and our country that allows us to worship freely.
And because Thanksgiving just isn’t complete without pilgrims and Indians, I have to share a few pictures I took yesterday and today when I visited my daughters’ school classes. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to be at my son’s party.
One Little Indian…
And a pilgrim…
Both classes enjoyed a “feast,” and my kindergartener participated in a little show about the first Thanksgiving. High comedy, I’m telling ya.
Tonight we took the two older kids and went to see a Panto of Cinderella at the People’s Light Theater in Malvern. If you’re local, this is a great show. I highly recommend it. We’re looking forward to a nice liesurely breakfast in the morning and then a fun family gathering in the afternoon. I hope you and yours have a delightful Thanksgiving celebration!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours 🙂
Just read your previous post too, and as my husband I I both grew up with real trees – we have always had artificial trees since we got married! We also grew up with coloured lights, and it is white lights all the way now in our house.
Our kids long for coloured, but we say they they can have all the coloured lights and real trees they want….when they move out and get their own houses – well there has to be some incentive fo them to leave eventually!
your daughter is so cute! I wanted to post a “thankful list” too but with company in town I couldn’t muster up the energy. How sad is that.
Happy Thanksgiving! C looks like a true Pilgrim! Have a great day!
Happy Thanksgiving to you too!
Don’t eat too much today!
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, dcrmom! Your kids really are adorable. I totally want to make Native American and Pilgrom hats for Marvin and me to wear at dinner now. Who is off to look for her crayons?
Have a wonderful thanksgiving!
I just got a short list up this morning. Of course you always have the top few every year, family, faith, friends, health, but I had to add a few extras too. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!!! BTW that pilgrim hat is too cute.
