On a recent November afternoon, the Zee Zees resident history buff, Liza was hanging out with a couple of her human pals, Andrew and Erin, learning more about the history of Planet Earth. It had been a fun afternoon of exploring the local history museum, and then going to the library afterwards to check out a few books on the background of some of the exhibits they had seen. As her human friends walked her back home to the Applesaucer, they casually asked her what her plans were for Thanksgiving.
'Thanksgiving?' Liza said, 'I'm not quite sure I know what that is.' Andrew just smiled and said, 'You don't know? Well you are in for a real treat when you find out!' Erin then proceeded to give her a hand written card that invited Liza and the rest of the Zee Zees over to her and Andrew's house for Thanksgiving. Liza excitedly waved goodbye to her human friends and ran inside the Applesaucer to tell the rest of the Zee Zees that they had been invited to Andrew and Erin's house for Thanksgiving.
Liza made an announcement over the intercom, 'This is a Zeemergency! I need all the Zee Zees to assemble at once in the main dining room!' One by one, all the Zee Zees stopped what they were doing and made their way over to figure out what was going on. Finally, when they had all gathered, Liza let everyone know what the situation was. 'Okay, everybody, here's the deal. We've all been invited to something called Thanksgiving at Andrew and Erin's house next Thursday, does anybody know what that means?' All the Zee Zees got very quiet and looked at each for answers, but none came.
'Just as I thought' said Liza. 'Well it looks like the first thing we need to do is figure out what this Thanksgiving thing is and then figure what we can do to help Andrew and Erin celebrate it. All the Zee Zees began nodding their heads in agreement, and by and by each of them came forward with an idea of how they could contribute to helping solve this mystery by the time they went over Andrew and Erin's. 'Alright!' Liza said, 'It looks like we have a plan and everyone knows what we need to do, so let's get out there and do it!'
As the Zee Zees sat down at the huge table that Andrew and Erin had set up for them, everybody was all smiles as they were feeling happy with the way they had worked together as a team to get ready for this big event. Grizlee said to Zeemore, 'I just wanted to thank you for driving to the store and picking up all the things we needed.' Zeemore replied, 'Well thank you for making me a map of the best way to get there.' Ozzy said to Mooz, 'Thank you so much for carrying everything over here, I don't think we could have done this without you.' Mooz replied, 'Well, we certainly couldn't have made this awesome playlist of great songs we're listening to without you.'
It went on and on like this until all the Zee Zees had thanked each other for something that they had done over the course of the week. Then it was Liza's turn to thank someone. She said, 'I'd like to thank Andrew and Erin for inviting us all to our first Thanksgiving dinner. I am so thankful that they were able to show us the true meaning of Thanksgiving without us even knowing it. After watching all of you thank each other for all the hard work we did this week, I realized that the true meaning of Thanksgiving is learning to really appreciate the people closest to you and be thankful for all that they do.' Andrew and Erin both smiled and winked at each other. Then Andrew said, 'I'd like to thank whoever made all this amazing applesauce, it's delicious! And then everybody laughed and enjoyed their first Thanksgiving dinner together.
