Thanksgiving for the Little Ones

We recently celebrated our Thanksgiving feast.

There was yummy turkey, gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes, applesauce, corn,  and DESSERTS.

We’ve also been reading Thanksgiving books:

Thanks for Thanksgiving by Julie MarkerThanks for Thanksgiving


and The Littlest Pilgrim

cute books, to be sure, but perhaps a little too difficult a concept for my littles to understand.

Nonetheless, we perservered.

When taking pictures of the littles at their Thanksgiving tables

with their handprint turkey placemats,

they all said
“Happy Halloween!”


I told them how hard Ms Beth worked in the kitchen to prepare the food and what should they say to her.

One of them said “I like your shirt!”


I said yes you can say that but how about also THANK YOU????

so they said: thank you Ms Beth…I like your shirt!!!!

to me. (sigh)
