Thankful Thursday!

Thanksgiving is only 3 weeks from today!

I feel like it's getting passed by.

We just celebrated Halloween...and we had a great time. Now, all my kids, courtesy of the mass marketing of the toy industry, are gearing up for Xmas. Me and Mr. O., we love our DVR; mostly, because we can cruise through the commercials. Our kids would rather watch commercials than their shows right now.

Kids: Can you get me this...can you get me that...blah blah blah

I get that... I really do...

So, we are telling them not to ask us, but to remember their wishes in their Santa letters.

I really want the Thanksgiving holiday to be meaningful for them...I'm going to start now by asking them what they are thankful for each day, and what they wish and hope for the next day. Recognizing that they are 3, 5, and 5, I have a feeling we will have some funny remarks.

Leading the pack, I'm thankful for my husband and 3 earth angels....I also hope for a whine-free day tomorrow.

That is a wonderful idea! I think it is a good thing that thanksgiving comes before Christmas, because it gives us a chance to pause and realize how much we have to be thankful about!! Please let us know what your kids say!

Have a wonderful day!
