Very Thankful

We enjoyed a simple, family Thanksgiving, beginning with watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in our pajamas. The kids helped with the cooking and were so excited that Uncle Tom could join us for dinner.

We are pondering many blessings this year, almost too numerous to list, but we thought you might enjoy seeing what the kids are thankful for this year:


  • My School
  • Bugs
  • My [pretend] Dog Emily
  • Green Beans
  • My Family

  • My Family
  • My Spine
  • My Grandma Who Passed On
  • My Heart
  • My Pets
  • Food and Water
