It’s Almost Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and we love to build up excitement for the holiday by reading turkey books to get us in the spirit.
It seems like the Thanksgiving holiday gets pushed aside, because just as soon as the Halloween costumes hit the stores, Christmas merchandise starts appearing everywhere. While we enjoy all the holidays, Thanksgiving is especially dear to us as we gather with family and celebrate being together. It’s the one holiday where you don’t have to exchange gifts, or buy lots of stuff–you just gather together and share a meal and fellowship.
This year, we are hosting Thanksgiving at our house for the first time and serving a meal that my young chef and I will do most of the preparation for. Of course, the grandmas are bringing their traditional side dishes that everyone will be expecting, but my son and I are cooking the turkey–another first for us. We’re excited to plan a meal and open our home to extended family and friends. And, since my son is all about cooking, he is already planning what he’d like to serve.
We pulled some of our favorite turkey themed books off our shelf and will be reading through all of them as we count down the days to Turkey Day!
Happy turkey time!
