Thanksgiving is coming up so soon! I love the idea of a holiday that is 100% centered around getting together with friends and family to reflect on all of the things we are thankful for each year. I have partnered up with a few of my FAVORITE blogging friends to participate in a Thanksgiving Hop to reflect on the things that we are thankful for, and to share a few traditions, recipes and FREEBIES with you!
There are so many things I am thankful for that it would be impossible to pick just one! Here are a few things I am thankful for this year:
An oldie but goodie of the whole family from our trip to Disneyland a few years ago. All 6 of our boys lived at home then, now we are down to 3!
A more current picture of our third son with his girlfriend.
One of my favorite pictures of my husband with my youngest two.
My Students & Their Families
My students become like family to me and their families do too!
My Blogging and TpT Friends
As I've said before, my blogging friends really help me to become a better teacher, through innovative ideas, brainstorming, and collaboration. I couldn't do it without you! Here are just a few of my favorites:
Nicole from The Craft of Teaching
Karen from Planet Happy Smiles
Chandra from PowerPoint Gaming
Kathleen from A+ Kids
Our Thanksgiving family traditions include a big family dinner at our home. Since we had so many kids (6 boys) it was always easier to invite people here than to lug them all out. Now that 3 of our older boys are fully grown, life is less complicated, but we still host Thanksgiving dinner.
One of our favorite dishes is the infamous green bean casserole. Here is the recipe:
Green Bean Casserole
1 can Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup
1/2 cup milk
1 dash black pepper
4 cans cooked green beans (I prefer French style)
1 1/3 cups French Fried Onions
1. Stir all of the ingredients together in a casserole dish (leaving out about 2/3 of the French Onions).
2. Sprinkle remaining French Onions on top.
3. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes.
