HAPPY THANKSGIVING INHABITOTS READERS!
We love Thanksgiving because it gives us the chance to slow down and spend quality time with friends and family — all while eating delicious foods! We have so much to be grateful for, and after the jump, the Inhabitots team shares pictures of their loved ones and their sentiments of gratitude!
Jill’s son, Petey, picking pumpkins
I’m grateful for my cutie-pie son, Petey, who is the light of my life, and who is teaching me so much. I’m also thankful for my family’s good health, as well as pumpkins, chestnuts, banh mi and PlanToys. Finally I’m so thankful to our Inhabitots readers for paying attention to our baby blog, and for providing so much insight and inspiration into the jouney of parenting. Thank you! — Jill Fehrenbacher
Beth’s daughter, Olivia
I’m most thankful for my delightful daughter Olivia, who raises me as much as I raise her, and for the health and well-being of my entire family. I’m grateful that I love my job writing about green parenting and that I am inspired every day to make changes to better my environment on both a global and a personal level. — Beth Shea
Jasmin’s daughter and cat
I’m grateful for my incredible family, including the Most Amazing Baby in the World, closely followed by the Most Amazing Husband in the World and the Most Amazing Cat in the World. — Jasmin Malik Chua
Abigail’s sons Jasper and Oliver
Our past year with the twins has been action-packed and full of adventures. We are so fortunate to have been able to travel as a family overseas in order to spend time with family and work on projects that are meaningful to us. One of our baby boys developed a health condition this summer (that we are still working with on a daily basis), so we are honestly thankful that he is doing well and teaching us so much about how to be strong every day. New challenges make room for new solutions, and I am always amazed how there seems to be an even better way of doing things, just when you thought that you had things all tidied up. This year will be a relaxing Thanksgiving for us – hopefully with a nice long nap for all. We deserve to simply sit back and be happy that we have each other and a comfortable home that we can share and flourish in together. — Abigail Doan
Desmond’s son, Devon at a Green Apple Kids workshop
There are so many things the members of our family are individually grateful for this year that it would be impossible to condense them all into a few sentences. But there is one thing that we all agree has touched each of us in a positive way, and that’s Devon’s admission to a specialized public school with an Earth Science curriculum. For that we are truly grateful. — Desmond Williams
Johnny with his children
I’m thankful for parks, I’m thankful for bicycles, I’m thankful for Internet and movies like UP. I’m thankful for avocado, I’m thankful for crushed ice, I’m thankful for onion soup and I’m thankful for soy sauce, which can make hay taste good. I’m also thankful for New Yorker cartoons, Photoshop and cute kiddie clothes that look like shrunken adult clothes. Finally, I’m thankful that I am able to be thankful for all of those things. — Johnny Strategy
