There are silly turkeys living at my house.

I thought I would do something seasonal on the chalkboard hanging on the brick wall in my kitchen.  Since I purchased this chalkboard about a year ago, it has announced many happenings (the birth of our first grandchild), relayed notes to my children, even conveyed a bit of silliness from time to time.   But this time I thought I would delve into the workings of my 3 teenagers' minds and maybe they would enlighten me as to what they might be thankful for this thanksgiving season.  If I could not get them to talk to me (as most teenagers believe their parents are idiots), I figured I would trick them into revealing what might be really really important to them.  This way I could tuck them into bed at night knowing (insert "hoping" or "wishing" here) that they were really good kids looking out for others and loving our family unconditionally.   Yeah.  What was I thinking?  I guess I really AM an idiot.  The picture above shows the insane workings in the minds of the lunatics I call my three youngest offspring.  To give them their due, my son said he did include some things my husband might be thankful for!

  1. I know you probably already know this, but I thought I would tell you just in case...

    A fun thing to do at Thanksgiving is to have Paper and Pen at the door for your guests to write one thing they are thankful for, and then put them in a bowl and after dinner, each guest draws a "thankfulness", reads it, and everyone tries to guess who wrote it...

    If you try this, let me know how it goes.
