Thanksgiving Week 2013

We've decorated the house.
We've stocked the fridge.
We're getting ready to travel over the river and through the woods.

Here in Happily Ever Johnson Land, we're ready to welcome Thanksgiving!

I enjoy making a big deal over Thanksgiving as a family.  
What better way to prepare for Advent than to begin with grateful hearts?  
Here are a few of our plans to help make this week extra special, in a thankful sort of way.

What we'll be making:

This is now a three year tradition in our family.  Each year they are a little different and always special.  E-Bear has already asked when we'll make our Thankful Turkeys and what they'll look like this year.  We'll see.....

~Pilgrim napkin rings~
A gift from MoMo, these cute napkin rings are from Paper Source and will be a fun addition to the Thanksgiving table.  The kids can't wait!

What we'll be cooking:
I am so excited to contribute to Thanksgiving dinner!  Hopefully, we'll give J-Bear her first meal too.

Just like Grandma Cookie used to make.
The Pioneer Woman recipe that can't be beat
Brussels in bacon is a delicious combination
A technique that is so easy and so delicious.

What we'll be reading:

~Bear Says Thanks, by Karma Wilson~

This is a sweet rhyming children's book, reminding us to be 
thankful for others and eager to give in return.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving week!
