Happy Thanksgiving Day!


May your Thanksgiving Day be filled with love, family, friends and of course...lots of turkey.  And least we not forget, pumpkin pie!  Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

Over the River(Thanksgiving Day) 
Over the river and through the wood
To Grandmother's house we go.
The horse knows the way
To carry the sleigh
Through white and drifted snow.

Over the river and through the wood
Oh, how the wind does blow!
It stings the toes
And bites the nose,
As over the ground we go.

Over the river and through the wood
To have a first-rate play.
Hear the bells ring,
Ting-a-ling-ling!
Hurrah forThanksgiving Day!

Over the river and through the wood,
Trot fast, my dapple gray!
Spring over the ground
Like a hunting hound,
For this is Thanksgiving Day.

Over the river and through the wood,
And straight through the barnyard gate.
We seem to go
Extremely slow~
It is so hard to wait!

Over the river and through the wood~
Now Grandmother's cap I spy!
Hurrah for fun!
Is the pudding done?
Hurrah for the pumpkin pie!

Oh, I'm so excited to see those full lyrics! Especially since my kid will be traveling over the river and through the wood to her grandmother's house for Thanksgiving. :)

I hope you have a wonderful holiday and a lovely Thanksgiving!

Thank you all so much for all the wonderful comments! I can hope that the day after Thanksgiving will bring you lots of rest and great deals if you were daring enough to venture out on Black Friday that is. We are having a relaxed weekend and I hope you all are also! Thank you for being such a wonderful cyber family.
