A few days ago, I went to the mailbox and found the wonderful news about Squirrel's World being selected for the Texas Bluebonnet Master List. Today, I went to my computer and found a note from my Candlewick editor saying Kisses on the Wind won the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Medal Award! I am so grateful for these lovely blessings and will be sure to include them in my thanksgiving prayers.

Happy Thanksgiving All!
The other day, I strolled down to collect our mail and was astounded by what I found. It was like going to the mailbox and finding a treasure box of gold- only better. It was a letter saying that Squirrel's World was nominated to the 2010-2011 Texas Bluebonnet Award Master List! I was absolutely overjoyed with this honor, and I feel very humbled and grateful. The best part is that Squirrel will go out and share his humor and good intentions with many schoolchildren in Texas via his book. As Squirrel said, "Today has been a good, good, good day!"
