    Happy Thanksgiving!

    I hope all of you had a great Thanksgiving Day! I was able to spend it with about 1/2 of my family! I loved having them all around me. Before dinner, we always go around the room and say one thing we are thankful for. This year, I made a new rule. I told everyone that if they wanted to give thanks for their family, then they had to say thank you for something else, too. I figure no matter who your family is (by blood or adoption or anything in between), I think we should give thanks for them!

    It was fun to hear what else people were thankful for!

    Some of the thankfulness that was shared
    My family was thankful for:
    Grandpa - togetherness
    Niece - toys
    Niece - the feast (food)

    And of course family!
