My American Friends and their Thanksgiving

This weekend my American friends celebrate Thanksgiving.

They are terribly behind.

BUT because I’m Canadian and forgive easily I am turning a blind eye to their backwards holidays and am wishing them a day full of love, gratitude, and full bellies.

Also?

In the spirit of the American Thanksgiving I took the opportunity to ask my daughter what her thoughts were on the Turkey lovers.

    I might be scared if our turkey is purple on Thursday.

    I hope she picked a winner in there for you! πŸ˜‰

      Hope you had a good Thanksgiving… and took note of the turkey’s colour.

    This is AWESOME! I love that you left the nose picking in! ha ha!
    I WISH we had purple turkeys… that would be rad. I’m thankful we don’t eat those beautiful PEACOCKS… we both share a love of those pretty colours right? But we have to wait until November for Thanksgiving because we’re too busy pigging out on all that candy from Halloween in October! Gotta spread out the food fests right?
    Your daughter is adorable! Thanks for letting us all see her pick her nose. πŸ˜‰

      It’s very unusual that we celebrate the same holiday a month apart.
      We should do it at the same time.

    My favorite part is when she stuck her hand into your shirt, haha!!!

    What? My Monkey does the same thing. I have no idea what he’s looking for.

    Also? She’s adorable!!

      I think it’s an instinct.
      They feel comforted there.
      Aww kids.

      To make your thanksgiving complete.

    How sweet of you…ah the places those little fingers have been. Thanks for leaving in all the parts most people would edit out – they were the best, your face on the down the shirt grab was priceless!

      She loves going down there.
      In public she looks down there and says “bra?”
      Little bugger.

    Hee! She is so, so very cute! Love the purple turkeys, she might be onto something there!

    Happy {American} Thanksgiving to you! Get that girl some turkey- and pie! πŸ™‚

      Thank you for clarifying that you were wishing my an American Thanksgiving.
      hehehe.
      You are so smart.

    November 23, 2011 | 10:45 am

    Oh Americans.
    My husband is a half-breed and my mother in law kills the turkey every year. Maybe that’s how Americans eat it…all mummified and tasteless. I suppose it’s kind of purple.
    I love purple.
    And kids who pick their nose.

    • multitaskingmumma
      November 26, 2011 | 8:07 am

      Purple is my favourite colour. Perhaps that’s why she thinks turkey’s are that colour?
      Or she’s onto something?

    That girl may just start a purple turkey craze!

    We are terribly behind. But I’m still going to indulge like we aren’t.

    • multitaskingmumma
      November 26, 2011 | 7:59 am

      The part I hated about being pregnant on a holiday was getting full too fast and not being able to eat eat eat.
      Hope you can stuff a little bit more food in there.

    Your expressions in the video are too funny. And I SO wish I knew why your daughter thinks our turkeys are purple! Very cute.

    • multitaskingmumma
      November 26, 2011 | 7:58 am

      Thank you!
      I have no idea where she is getting this information.
      Unless you really do have purple turkey’s and I don’t know anything about it.

  16. Ado
    November 23, 2011 | 5:53 pm

    Our turkey’s gonna be purple tomorrow after my husband DEEP FRIES THE HECK OUT OF IT.
    —-> Can I move to where you live? (-:

    • multitaskingmumma
      November 26, 2011 | 7:56 am

      Yes you can come here! I would wait until after Black Friday though. We don’t have the great deals you do.

    I don’t care what she’s saying… She’s just too adorable!!!! Hugs to your daughter for me.

    Besides, I think she was trying to be politically correct, you know… by appearing distracted an all! LOL

    • multitaskingmumma
      November 26, 2011 | 7:54 am

      AND she’s including ALL of the turkey’s!
