Happy Brain-boosting Wednesday!!!

What is THANKSGIVING???
Sooooooo s few years ago, before Thanksgiving, buuuuuut after Halloween, my little nephew O was talking to me and he started on his own accord saying that Halloween was YUCKY!!! My sister said she never said anything to him but when they would go to the store and he would see the Halloween stuff he would say, ewwwwww! I don't like it,  HALLOWEEN IS YUCKY!!! Which, in case you didn't know, it IS indeed YUCKY!!!
.
Well one day when I was getting him ready for school in the morning, I asked him, Odin, do we celebrate Halloween?! He said, NOOOO!!! He shakes his little head, we don't celebrate Halloween! Halloween is YUCKY!!! Then he points to our fall pumpkins on the kitchen table says, 
WE CELEBRATE JESUSGIVING!!!
Isn't that the cutest thing everrrr!!! 

Here's your middle-of-the-week brain booster!!!

.

"Did you know???..."
.


Thanksgiving: Remembering to GIVE THANKS, 
                      for all that JESUS HAS GIVEN!!! (Mary's definition;)
.

"...Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelllll NOW YOU DO, annnnnnnnnd don't you FORGET IT!!!" (AIO BTV quote;)



"Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God." (2 Corinthians 9:11)

No joke peeps-its the middle of November and we're rocking the high 80's over here this week in AZ!!! It actually said 91 in my car!!! Welcome to Pheonix, where we don't dream of WHITE Christmases, we dream of COLD Christmases!!!! Hee, hee!!!
