Thanksgiving Turkey Trot/Crafts/Recipes from the Archives

This week we are taking a break from our homeschool lessons to celebrate Thanksgiving week with family and friends.  Thanksgiving is always a special holiday because our 4th Cupcake was born just before Thanksgiving in 2007.  We just celebrated her "non-theme" birthday party, which was alot of fun!  

A family tradition we do each year on Thanksgiving morning is participate in a local Turkey Trot that raises money for Habitat for Humanity.  We go early in the morning to run/walk the race as a family and meet friends there and then we head to Mass to thank God for all our blessings.  Then it's family time with food, fun, and laughs! 

Here are some Thanksgiving themed posts from the archives that I thought I would share in case they inspire anyone to try baking or making one of these ideas. 

May you have a Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving with friends and family!

  “Give thanks to the Lord for He is good. His mercy endures forever.”
Psalm 107:1 

For this week's  Thankful Thursdays Link-Up, I'm thankful for family and friends on this Thanksgiving 2014!   Creating memories and fun with those I love are some of the reasons I love Thanksgiving!  I'm also thankful for all the friends and visitors I have "met" in blog land!  Thank you to those who visit my corner of the web once or regularly!  I'm so glad to share God's goodness and a slice of Smith life with anyone who is willing to listen! :)
