What Does Thanksgiving Mean to Kids?

1) Interview your kids…what do they think Thanksgiving is for?  What are they thankful for?  etc.
Well since I don’t have kids of my own, I borrowed some to get their answers to these questions!

     Aiden (6): For people to come and see people who are thankful for you!  Thankful for you (Cori), yes I’m thankful for you :-) [how sweet!!]

     Annika (3): I don’t know!  I’m thankful for YOUUUUU [her mom], CONNOR and AIDEN *giggle*!

     Connor (6): We celebrate because Christopher Columbus sailed the world!   I’m thankful for my pets.

     Gabrielle (3): We’re celebrating Thanksgiving tomorrow for fun!  I’m thankful for trucks, quesadillas and my sissy!

     Jack (3): I dunno!  I’m thankful for mac ‘n cheese, Patti…Sophie too! 

     Madison (4): Because its Fall and because the leaves are falling off the trees.  I’m thankful for my family and my friends!

     MacKenzie (3): I don’t know!  I’m thankful for you, Cori [thanks, but stop copying your brother, pick something else!]… I’m thankful for mommy!

     Nate (3): I’m gonna spend Thanksgiving with my mama!  I’m thankful for my mommy and daddy!

     Sophia (8): To give thanks to everybody.  It’s the day that the Indians helped the Pilgrims plant corn, I’m guessing?  I’m thankful for my friends and family, and my pets!

     Julia & Alec (honorary kids): We are thankful for adoption!!

Apparently, we need to spend more time with our preschool aged friends teaching them about Thanksgiving lol!!  Oh well!

Wishing You A Happy Thanksgiving!!!
