Thursday ~ Giving Thanks

Giving Thanks

Welcome to day four of our "Giving Thanks" celebration! We are taking this week (Monday-Saturday) to prepare our hearts and homes for this wonderful time of year. Each day I will be posting a Thanksgiving related activity, cleaning challenge and Words of Thanksgiving. They will be located directly below this post!

Mr. Linky is available for you to join in and here are some things you could share:
-What you are thankful for

-Thanksgiving traditions or memories
-Craft Ideas
-Decorating ideas
-Your menu
-Cleaning/Organizing "before" and "after" pictures
-Anything having to do with Thanksgiving!

Remember, everyone who participates and signs Mr. Linky will be entered into a drawing at the end of the week! Go HERE to see the prizes. Each day you participate, your name will be entered into the giveaway drawing. If you participate two days, your name will be entered twice, join us all five days for five entries, etc.

Please read the participating instructions carefully:

1. Write a Thanksgiving post on your blog. Link back to There is No Place Like Home so that others can join in. You may use the "Giving Thanks" button located at the top of this post.
2. When signing Mr. Linky, you must link directly to your "Giving Thanks" post and not your homepage URL.

Your THanksgiving preparations are going really well, I'm especially impressed with the linen cupboard, it's great when you see the results of your efforts every time you open a drawer or cupboard isn't it?

I'm enjoying this opportunity to blog about my first Thanksgiving as a newlywed in a new land! Thanks!

Sharon said...

What a beautiful idea Kelli! I love Thanksgiving for what it represents with our founding fathers and that our country was founded with a love for God and the freedom to worship Him! Also that it is such a family holiday!

Thaks so much for hosting this wonderful week. I have so enjoyed visiting such a variety of other bloggers and hearing what is important to them at this time of year.

What a lovely idea, Kelli, thanks for hosting this. I think Thanksgiving is such an unappreciated holiday in our land. Thanks for reminding us all of what it's really all about.
