It's nice to feel their gratitude. It makes me feel appreciated and who wouldn't like that. It's that simple thank you, that has led into other feelings of thankfulness. Now, while they don't thank me for all the other things that I do around here...endless trips to the school to drop off forgotten things, being their taxi service, cleaning the toilets, etc. I do know that they are thankful for that and me (at least I hope so).
For our craft, I helped Nathan make a "Thankful Turkey". We used scrapbooking paper for an added flair and pretty much free handed everything and then I asked Nathan to tell me what he was thankful for. Somehow, I was left out until the end.....hmmph! Here I was making a craft with him and he almost forgot to be thankful for me - Unless, he thought he was being cute and trying to mess with my head. Yeah, that sounds good, well go with that one!).
Nathan is thankful for....
his brothers and sisters
the food he eats
his strong Daddy
projects and crafts
turkey on turkey day
all his books
pie, cupcakes and cookies
and last, but I hope not the least....his Mommy
And, speaking of being thankful - I'm thankful to my friend Penny, who gave us a bunch of scrapbooking and other crafty fun stuff. Thanks again Penny!
