ELLIE: So Mr. Waffles?
ELLIE: So what's all
WAFFLES: Ellie, EVERY food is your very favorite food.
ELLIE: Yeah, but what does the thanks and giving thing mean?
WAFFLES: It's Thanksgiving, Ellie. It's a holiday that we all celebrate with turkey and pumpkin pie and stuff. It's a day that we think about what we're thankful for too.
ELLIE: I'm thankful for turkey. I LOVE turkey.
WAFFLES: You're right about that, Ellie. Someone once explained to me how Thanksgiving is so much more than turkey and yummy food smells though.
ELLIE: What do you mean, Mr. Waffles?
WAFFLES: Well, she told me that it's hard to put into words, but it's about being thankful for the little things. Just last year, this is how she explained it to me:
"Like the sunshine in the morning that warms us and the blue jays that fly by our window.""Like how every time I roll over on the rug, Glogirly will pet me in just the right place."
"Like how Glogirly talks to us in her sing-song voice. And how she sometimes even sings to us."
