I hope you all are going to have a wonderful Thanksgiving week. We are planning to leave tomorrow to go up to spend most of the week with my parents. The boys are very excited and I am also. i think we all need a little vacation. <p> It got cold this morning and snowed lightly, which was great and very exciting! I am sort of hoping the roads are still clear tomorrow when I am driving, i get so nervous driving though. <p> We have some fun things we like to do this time of year and one thing we do every year is listen to Focus on the Family Radio Theater’s Squanto CD’s on the trip to mom and dad’s. It is a great way to refresh our minds about the first Thanksgiving. We are also going through a book with so much fun info in it about many things about their lives that first couple years here. Do you have any fun traditions? I read one where they eat very simple the day before so they are thankful for the feast the next day. <p> it is time for me to go shopping for the food for Thursday and  meals for the other days. I have alot to do to get ready, plus I am meeting with two doula clients as well while there. <p>

    I hope you guys have a safe trip and a great Thanskgiving with your family. The Squanto cd's sound very interesting. I wanted to do something with the kids this week, so I just found a little story online and read it to them. Then, we made little Mayflower ships out of construction paper. Anyhow, I pray your family will have a very Happy Thanksgiving.
    Love & Blessings,

    Happy Thanksgiving!! Hope you have a lovely week. πŸ™‚

    On our Thanksgiving, dh took the 3 older ones to the lake, it was so warm that day. I stayed home with the 2 little ones, baby was just 3 days old then. Anyway, they had a great time, we won't forget that Thanksgiving! πŸ™‚ We have much to be thankful for, don't we?!

    We have a fun tradition. Every year we read stories but the other thing we do is that everyone traces their hand on fall colored construction paper (they end up looking like turkeys). Then we put our name and year on the palm area and on each finger we write what we are thankful for. I have to help the little ones with this but the older ones can do it themselves. Then we send them to grandma who laminates them, and hangs them on her wall every Thanksgiving. It is really fun to watch the little hands get bigger and it is also cool to see all that we have written over the years.
