Happy Thanksgiving

Mignon is thankful for: scarves, seat heaters, sharp ice skates, health, good luck, scalding hot food, nice kids, the thing that allows me to play my iPod on the car stereo so that I don't have to listen to Jim's entire collection of live Dave Matthews and Bob Dylan which could take us all the way to Winthrop and back with just Disc 1 of each album. And my friends and family. They're really good too.

Madeleine is thankful for: "Pooey, rings (the playground kind), good people, PollyPockets and Playmobil and Plastics, my family"

Quinn is thankful for: "football, baseball, candy, cows, baby monkeys, beetles, owls, lizards, and I wish I had a flying donkey"

That story, and that author, are too precious for words!

Can you do me a favor, though, and white out that apostrophe on page one of the story?

I misread your post and wondered what these "candy cows" are that your son likes so much. Why aren't there candy cows? I want.

Mad reading and writing skilz! There are some strong verbal genetics in your household! Well, except for the misuse of apostrophes.

What about Jim? Isn't he thankful?

Your daughter is a tiny you. Down to the hand-through-hair move.

Sweet Baby Moses, but that little girl is a Mini-Mignon for sure. Lovely writing and reading and not even nervous on camera!
