A Ducky Thanksgiving Story (2012)

Morning of the Thanksgiving Celebration

Wake up! Wake up!

Thanksgiving morning, Pembleton and Blizzard got up early and woke up Ducky and Ted (who were still snoozing at 8:30am).

Cool Costumes!

After Ducky and Ted got their costumes on, it was time for them to head to school.

At school they learned about Thanksgiving and why they celebrate it.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Finally, they celebrated the holiday with a big feast and plenty of pie.

Ducky and the gang wish you a wonderful and happy thanksgiving. They also wanted everyone to know how thankful they are for all of their great fans.

Ducky loves pizza day at school. He is always the first one to the cafeteria, he flashes a big smile at the lunch ladies, and he asks for a large slice of Margarita pizza. Mmm… Mmm… PIZZA!

Mmm... Cheesy Pizza!

Mmm… Cheesy Pizza!

Lately, Pembleton has been having a lot of trouble in his Hebrew class. He just can’t remember the sounds made by all of the funny looking letters. But Pembleton has also been too embarrassed to ask for help.

Pembleton usually excels at everything academic, but learning a new language is so strange. You have to make noises that you’ve never heard before, and read letters that you’ve never seen before. To make things worse, Ducky, who usually has lots of trouble in school, is learning Hebrew so quickly. Ducky, Ted, Blizzard, and all the other animals read everything perfectly, but when it was Pembleton’s turn he felt like he was just speaking jibberish.

Pembleton felt ashamed, until he finally worked up the courage to ask his teacher what he should do. His teacher said, “How about you study with my star student?” Pembleton wondered who the teacher’s “star” student was. He hoped it wasn’t Ducky, but he needed help so much he was willing to do whatever the teacher thought would help. To Pembleton’s surprise the teacher walked over to Blizzard’s desk and asked him if he would be willing to study with Pembleton.

Pembleton felt so relieved because he felt comfortable studying with Blizzard. But just to be sure, Pembleton asked Blizzard if they could study after Ducky went to bed so that no one would laugh at his mistakes.

After only a few study sessions, Pembleton and Blizzard have both improved a lot, and Pembleton is feeling much more confident about the Hebrew class.

Shalom! Shmi Blizzard!

Shalom! Shmi Blizzard!

Even though Ducky has been having lots of fun and trying lots of new things, he has been having a hard time since moving to Israel. He hasn’t made many new friends yet. So it was really hard for him today, because today is Ducky’s birthday.

All day Ducky kept telling Pembleton about how he wished his friends were here to celebrate his birthday and that his birthday just wouldn’t be the same without his friends. Ducky was so sad to think that no one here even knew it was his birthday.

Just when Ducky thought he was going to cry, Pembleton told Ducky that he needed him to go down to the bakery to pick up some bread for dinner. When Ducky stepped inside the bakery, a group of familiar faces shouted, “SURPRISE!”. It was Ducky’s friends. Amanda Panda, Penelope Penguin, Edgar Elephant, and even the Lambs were there. Ted and Blizzard sang and danced. There were presents, a giant orange cake, and a sign that said “Happy Birthday Ducky”.

Ducky’s got to wear his sheriffs outfit and everyone sang him Happy Birthday. It was Ducky’s best birthday ever.

SURPISE!

SURPRISE!

“Good morning class,” Mrs. Cottontail exclaimed, “Who can tell me why we celebrate Thanksgiving?”

“To have a day off from school” said Rodolph the lamb.

“We do get the day off,” said Mrs. Cottontail, “but that is not the reason.”

“To eat lots of pie?” Ducky Asked.

“We do eat lots of pie,” Mrs. Cottontail replied, “but that’s not quite it.”

“I know, I know!” Pembleton shouted. “To give thanks for all the wonderful friends, family and blessing we have in our lives.”

“Exactly Pembleton.” Mrs. Cottontail smiled. “Now lets celebrate.”

“These costumes are cool.” Ducky said on their way to school, “but why are we all dressed up?”

“I know, I know” said Blizzard. “Today we are celebrating Thanksgiving.”

“Thanksgiving!” Ted said. “What’s that?”

“Just wait” Pembleton said. “Mrs. Cottontail, our teacher, will explain everything.”

The day before Thanksgiving, Pembleton and Blizzard woke up bright and early. Ducky and Ted, however needed their beauty sleep.

“Wake up, wake up. It’s time for school.” Pembleton shouted as he shook Ducky. “We have to get ready for school.” After several attempts, Ducky and Ted were finally up.

Today is a special day at school. It is “Sharing Day” and everyone is bringing something to share with the class. Ted and Blizzard are bringing their favorite Pumpkin Snickerdoodle cookies to share. Pembleton is sharing his ant colony he has been raising and Ducky is sharing his blog with the class. He wants to share his stories and pictures from his adventures with the other students. He even brought a book of his stories to give to his teacher, Mrs. Cottontail, to add to their story time collection.

If you had a Sharing Day at school, what would you like to share with your fellow classmates?

Remember any day is a good day to share Ducky’s blog with family or friends. Who wouldn’t enjoy fun & exciting stories about little animals doing big things?

Sharing is Caring!

This morning, Ducky, Ted, and Blizzard slipped out of the house while Pembleton was working on one of his science projects. They were going to meet Ducky’s old friend Potbelly Phil for a mud party. Pembleton never lets Ducky take Ted or Blizzard to play in Potbelly’s mud hole after seeing how dirty the place was. Ducky figured they could sneak out for a few hours before school, and Pembleton would never even know they were gone. Unfortunately, somehow, Pembleton found out.
