Thanksgiving 2013

*An Attitude of Gratitude
"This is a wonderful time to be living here on earth.  Our opportunities are limitless.  While there are some things wrong in the world today, there are many things right, such as teachers who teach, ministers who minister, marriages that make it, parents who sacrifice, and friends who help."
"We can lift ourselves, and others as well, when we refuse to remain in the realm of negative thought and cultivate within our hearts an attitude of gratitude.  If ingratitude be numbered among the serious sins, then gratitude takes its place among the noblest of virtues." 
Thomas S. Monson - Ensign, May 1992

Even in our trials we have much to be grateful for.
Let us have gratitude 
for even the smallest of blessings in our lives.
Here's some ideas for the kiddo's  for 
Thanksgiving this year.
Help them make a "Thankful For" 
Turkey for your table center piece.

Play Gingerbread Man blackout
*Draw a gingerbread man for each player, put lines through him and randomly 
put numbers in the sections

Here are the rules:

Going around in a circle, each player takes a turn rolling a dice or die. 

The player then gets to color in one of the segments with that number in it. 
Then, it's the next player's turn to roll and color.
The first player to color in their whole gingerbread man wins!
Have fun playing!

*Here is a link to some ideas from last year.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving 8000 calorie poem:

May your stuffing be tasty 

May your turkey plump, 

May your potatoes and gravy 

have nary a lump. 

May your yams be delicious 

and your pies take the prize, 

and may your Thanksgiving dinner 

stay off your thighs!
