Thanks

It's a quiet Thanksgiving this year, but we're celebrating just the same. My parents will be in town to eat lunch with us. I'm thankful for that. I'm thankful for many things and give thanks every day for blessings. It's hard not to be sad this year, with several close friends and family struggling with their health. I know that's one more thing I need to be thankful for in my own home.

So here's the preschool take on Thanksgiving and I'll leave it at that:

Brenna's recipe for turkey, as told in her preschool cookbook: "You need a fat turkey. Put it in the oven for ten minutes and take it out. Then you eat it."

From Brenna, earlier in the week, "Mama, do you know why turkeys have fear? They have fear and they run and run because we kill 'em and eat 'em."

Yup.

Have a blessed thanksgiving. Love the turkey bit--we don't eat turkey--food allergies, we do however have a very scared roast.

Happy Thanksgiving! It was 77 degrees in Augusta, Georgia yesterday and I'm so envious of the cold weather that Omaha is having. I mean 77 degrees does not feel like turkey weather! Enjoy your day!

Put the fear in those turkeys! Enjoy your peaceful (and fear-free!) holiday :-)

It was so great to hang out today. Even with the news we all got. I'm glad you weren't alone when you were told. I'm sad for you though. As sad as I am I cannot imagine how you must feel. Know that I am only a phone call away and am here to help in any way possible.

Love you lots. "Happy" Thanksgiving.
