Friday's Grand Connection Fun
by Mary May Larmoyeux
Hope that you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Pops and I spent it with some of our grandchildren.
We had a great time using Untie Your Story napkin ties from Ever Thine Home (www.everthinehome.com). Each one is imprinted with a question, and we had fun answering the different questions after we finished our Thanksgiving meal.
We also had our annual Thanksgiving tree, and the grandkids did a wonderful job decorating it. What was designed to be a small gumdrop tree held construction-paper leaves that the kids had made. Everyone wrote things they are thankful for on the front of the leaves and jotted their names on the back.
One by one we picked each colored leaf from our Thanksgiving tree and read what someone was grateful for. Then we guessed who wrote it. Whoever guessed the right person got to pick the next leaf from the tree and read that blessing out loud.
Rita once asked in a Grand Connection comment what our grandkids wrote on their Thanksgiving tree leaves. Here's a partial list of what they said this year (in no particular order):
- My teacher
- My dog
- My turtle
What was your favorite Thanksgiving memory this year? Why not send your grandkids an email or text, and share it with them? Then ask them to share their favorite Thanksgiving memory with you.
Have a great weekend,
