Thanksgiving season

on November 10, 2008

The time to reflect on your life. A time to think about all of the blessings that has been bestowed on you and be thankful. Thankful for God, family, jobs, friends and more. Thanksgiving is a time that we spend with family; eating, laughing, crying, eating some more. It is a time to put aside all the things that are amiss in our lives and think about all the good things that we have going for us.

Now that Emily has entered our lives, Thanksgiving is even more special. I want Emily to grow up thankful for all that she has and what’s a better time to start than now? We have been getting books from the library, talking about it (as much as you can do with a just-two year old) and doing art projects.

Over the next several days and weeks, watch for fun posts about how we are celebrating, teaching and learning. I have a few for you today!

So far we have only gotten a couple books at the library about Thanksgiving. We are on the lookout for more. Do you have any suggestions?

Two that we have read so far are: A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving and Thank you, Thanksgiving. Charlie Brown is a pretty long book and Emily sits through the ENTIRE thing. She absolutely loves it! It has Snoopy, Linus and his *babby* and Charlie Brown. What more could you want? She wants to read that one every night before bed. I think I will be glad when it gets returned on Wednesday.

So, give me your suggestions! What books should we get?

    Hi Karon,

    It’s Sarah from the St. Peters Meetup group. 😉 I found your blog through Ana’s.
    I wanted to suggest “The Night before Thanksgiving.” I was looking through it at Borders the other night (didn’t get to read it all) but it looked like a good one. 🙂
