"Alvin's Thanksgiving Celebration" DVDThanksgiving is just over a week away and we’re already in the mood — turkey, stuffing, cranberries, mmmm. Judging by the cover of this Alvin and the Chipmunk’s DVD, “Alvin’s Thanksgiving Celebration,” Theodore, Simon and the gang are also getting ready for the big holiday. So, to get you in the mood too, we’re pairing the DVD with a beautiful picture book, Diane Shore’s “This is the Feast.” All you have to do to win both is click “comments” and share your favorite Thanksgiving memory – favorite food, children’s table antics, or whatever you’d like. We’ll draw a name on Sunday night! (Congrats by the way to Abby, who won last week’s Star Wars Fandex!)

Be sure to check back Thursday when we start our seven day countdown to Thanksgiving, complete with kid-friendly recipes, crafts and other ideas!

    My favorite memory was 3 years ago. I helped the grandkids make big colorful turkey out of construction paper. We kept the feathers separate and it was their job to pass one to each guest as they arrived, to write something they were thankful for. During dinner the kids read them one by one and each turned into a memory or a story! There was no lull in the conversation that day! And with 22 people present our turkeys tail was very full when we attached it!
    Thanks! hondaray6 at hotmail dot com

    T-day 1999 was a very tough time for me. I won’t go into all the details, but it was bad. However, there was something very funny that happened that my Mom and I will never forget.
    I lived way out in the country and that year was a really bad year for mice coming into my house. So I had put out mice bait.
    As my Mom and I were making chicken with instant potatoes, we went to measure out the instant potatoes and heard something rattling around in the box. We looked in there and there were little blue/green pellets in the box with the potato flakes. It took me a couple of minutes to figure out and when I did, my Mom and I busted out laughing. Apparantly the mice were being very clever by putting their mouse bait in the box. To this day we have always wondered if they were trying to pay us back for being rid of them.

    My favorite Thanksgiving was in 1981. I was 10 years old and my family moved to CA (after living in 8 other states) and we were finally living close to family. It was my first time sitting around the table with aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents and sharing the meal together. It hasn’t changed since; I wouldn’t have it any other way.

    Hi, My fondest memories of Thanksgiving are from my childhood. My mom always did the cooking and I got to be the taste-tester! My sister, her husband and my two nieces, her in-laws and my brother always joined us!
    Then, after dinner, we sat and talked in our living room.
    Of course, the “Wizard of Oz” was always watched that evening. The flying monkeys still scare me! Thanks, Cindi

    I was a child of divorce so on Thanksgiving we would have a big meal with my moms parents and then go to my dads parents for dessert, I always loved that day becasue I got to see all my grandparents and all my cousins all in one day!

  6. CB Says:

    My favorite Thanksgiving memories were getting together with my cousins and playing while we waited for the food to be prepared. We hardly ever saw each other, so it was always very special.

    My neice is turning 4 this weekend. I’m sure she would love this.

  8. Susan C Says:

    When I was about 7 or 8 years old, I had the mumps on Thanksgiving (I know this really dates me-no immunizations). I could only eat soft foods because of the pain so my mom made me a special Thanksgiving meal-cranberry jello and a pumpkin pie flavored milkshake.It was delicious!

  9. Vicki Wurgler Says:

    we would go to my grandmothers for Thanksgiving, and I was the oldest grandchild. I always had to sit at the little table with the “babies” I just hated that

  10. karin Says:

    When I was a kid, we would often go to my uncle’s for Thanksgiving–about an hour away– and we would sing “Over the River and thru the Woods to Grandmother’s house we go”……

    I have no idea why. Maybe just to get us in the holiday spirit!

    My favorite Thanksgiving memory is smelling dinner baking in the oven, watching relative pour in, all while watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. :)

    my favorite memory was the year I had my arm operated on for a bone fracture and was laid up in a cast for several months-my family lived in another state but my neighbors invited me to Thanksgiving at their house. It was lots of fun and we had great food. I went back home and found other friends had left more food on my doorstep, already cooked and ready to go. I was very happy with their generosity and thankful I had them.
