We are thankful...

My Mom had this genius idea to make a Thankful Turkey...

I drew it, the kiddos colored it!

It turned out fabulous :)

Then the kids cut out colorful feathers, and we (meaning mostly my mom, because I work so dang much) helped them write what they are thankful for on the feathers.

Lots of sweet things such as family members, food, our warm home, etc.. And silly stuff like "I'm thankful we got to go trick or treating!" (Yes, that was from Aidyn!)

I think its a great way to teach the kids the true meaning of Thanksgiving!

I love walking past the Thankful Turkey and seeing all the wonderful things we've been blessed with! :)

And of course I couldn't forget about all of you! So "Blogging" has its very own Thankful feather! I am so Thankful for the fact that I have an outlet for all my feelings and writing. I'm so thankful that I can combine my two passions "writing" and being a "mom".. and most of all I am so thankful for all of you! :))
So tell me... What are you Thankful for?


Now to end on an ohhh so funny note....
