As a family, we go through the alphabet, one person at a time, and say something that we are grateful for. We start with the oldest and end with the youngest. (And the youngest usually needs some help…) I love it because although some things are the same from year to year, there's always new blessings that show how the kids are growing. This year it was slightly different in that my nephew was here to participate.
Apple pie (mmmm…)
Boo and books
Eggs (as in the ones that made the birds angry)
G. family (they're all pretty awesome)
Karate (the Boy just started taking lessons and is mildly obsessed)
Lollipops (Baby didn't need any help picking this one)
Mom (awww, shucks…)
Ruby and Max (I hate that show…)
Tilly (our rent-to-own dog; she'll be getting her own post soon enough)
Villains (when I asked Boo why she picked this, she said it was because bad guys make the story more interesting)
Water to drink right after karate (see? obsessed!)
Xylophones (because they make music)
What are you thankful for today?
