Don't forget about me !!

It is funny when I was dressing up my blog for Christmas all the while I was thinking what about Thanksgiving ?  I mean there it is kind of sandwiched between Halloween and the cute trick or treaters and Christmas-Jesus birthday, the most important holiday to me. 

I can remember on Thanksgiving, I was maybe in the 4th or 5th grade and just moved to a new town and a new school.  I usually went to several different schools a year.  So I was nervous when our teacher gave us an art project and I was thinking I don't know what they have been doing here.   After I finished my drawing, I can remember it to this day.  The drawing, with crayons I might add, was of corn stalks staked up in the cones as you see them in the pictures with a child and dog playing around it.  I do not remember if it was from my head or a picture.  I can't remember everything can I?

The teacher came over to me and looked at my picture and said come with me.  Now you can imagine how I felt, I thought going to the principals office already or even worse kicked out of school  and I loved school.   She took me into the scary room-THE TEACHERS LOUNGE !!!!! To my relief she just wanted to show off what I had drawn and then we did go to the principals office but for praise.  WHEW !!!!!!  I will never forget that the rest of my life.  What happened to the picture-- only the picture angel knows that. 

Now Thanksgiving always to me is a gathering with no pressures and lots of pies.   I hope you did read about last Thanksgiving's story.  It was a story.  We do have so much to be thankful for  and yes "things happen" but hey that is life and I do believe we just get stronger because of that.   I just can't imagine the Pilgrims and the Indians years ago eating together  it could almost be a tough dried turkey but hey it was the togetherness  I do believe that mattered.

I went on line and found these little pictures of Thanksgiving at a free vintage site, tried to down load their button but it didn't want to play with me.  I will keep trying though.

There you go.   I just didn't want to leave Thanksgiving out,  I mean hey I might not get any pumpkin pie. 

Thanks for stopping by and seeing what is going on in my world today.
