I had been scouring Pinterest for some fun Thanksgiving crafts involving turkeys. I was super excited thinking that the kids would be really excited too. I cut out all the little pieces and had glue sticks laid out.
They were not into it at all. It was pretty much a total fail. :(
I had my hopes up high, but in the end all they wanted to do was color on construction paper. After being frustrated and a bit angry I quickly got over it. So what if they didn't do what I thought they would want to do? So, they colored on paper and I assembled the turkeys. But, when it was time to fill out what we were thankful for, they actually both put a lot of thought (as much as you can when you are 2 and 3 1/2 ) and gave me some good answers.
Here is what Jaxson is thankful for:
His toys and room
Mommy and Daddy (heart swell)
Lions (also ?)
Here is what Kendra is thankful for:
Notice how Brandon and I aren't on the list? I was a little sad but I realize it is just a given in her little heart. I do love that she said purses and dresses and am honestly shocked she didn't say shoes. She is such a little diva. :)
I love that the first thing Jaxson said he was thankful for was his house and that mommy and daddy were second. I must be doing something right, huh?
