Count Down to Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is just a few days away.  The holiday is Monday, but we will be celebrating on Sunday.  We have a turkey in the freezer and Nanny will be joining us.  
    
Canadian Thanksgiving History:


"The history of Thanksgiving in Canada goes back to an English explorer, Martin Frobisher, who had been futilely attempting to find a northern passage to the Orient. He did, however, establish a settlement in Canada. In the year 1578, Frobisher held a formal ceremony in what is now the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, to give thanks for surviving the long journey. This event is widely considered to be the first Canadian Thanksgiving, and the first official Thanksgiving to occur in North America."

I tried posting (twice) a three year old J saying Grace at last years Thanksgiving, but it wouldn't load.  Maybe tomorrow.
