Getting into the Thanksgiving Spirit!

Yesterday for our family home evening we made a turkey and on each of the feathers is something that we are thankful for.  Michael enjoyed giving feathers to the turkey and naming things that he is grateful for, a few being: his little brother, his mom and dad, Oma and Opa, Grandma and Grandpa, Aunts and Uncles, Cousins, and of course toys and most of all his trains.  It is so much fun watching my boys learn and to grow!

I found a poem that was in a Friend magazine that I liked for there are so many things that I am thankful for:

A Thanksgiving Prayer 
by June Swanson
There is so much to say today;
I don’t know where to start.
How can I begin to tell
The thanks that fill my heart?

Should I begin with family,
Or love or joy or sunlight,
Or peace or health or happiness,
Or home or birds or stars at night?

For all these things—and many more—
I thank Thee, Father dear.
But most of all I thank Thee
For always being near.
On Saturday we had our first snow and after breakfast we all went out to play in it.  The boys loved the snow, even Jesse!  If Jesse fell down he would just eat the snow and have the biggest smile on his face.  They are both just too cute!  I love them to pieces!!  Then daddy got his snowboard out and took the boys for a little ride which they both loved, but too bad it didn't work too well!
