Connor's Story of Thanksgiving

Me: Connor, tell me about the First Thanksgiving.

Connor: So, the Pilgrims came to America on the Mayflower. And they found land
that had no houses on it! There they met the Indians. The Indians taught the Pilgrims
everything that they didn't know and the Pilgrims taught the Indians everything that THEY
didn't know. pause. And they all had dinner together. long pause. Their first food was marshmallows!

Me: Really?!?! Why do you think that?

Connor: Because they had fire.

Me: Of course! With every fire, you must have marshmallows!

Should I tell him what we think REALLY happened? Ehhh...I'll let him keep his innocence a little longer!


  1. Wait, that's not what really happened? :) Cute story, love that kids will say anything that comes to their heads.

  2. Adorable :) You have to share that story every year!
