Thankful Thursday--Thanksgiving Edition

Happy Thanks Giving!! Harmony and I are having a Charlie Brown Thanksgiving at home--the stomach bug I had last Friday has hit her. So she's eating toast, and I had some popcorn, and we've been watching Dora and Kipper movies. She's definitely on the mend, but we didn't want to expose the family to her germs. So Patrick and Henry are at the family gathering, while we hold down the fort.

Many years ago I started a Thousand Thanks list. It is such a blessing to go back and read it, and add the year's blessings onto it. Now I just need to find it :)

This year I'm thankful for:
--how much my children have learned and grown, both physically and spiritually
--how much I've grown spiritually
--blogging--it really has let me reflect on what God is doing in my life--and in the lives of others around me
--the depth of relationships that have developed at my church and in our town--I think for the first time in nine years, we can say we have friends!

Here's Henry's list (he's 5):
Mom, Dad, Me, Harmony
My knights
Playing on the playground
My bike
That the TRex at the Children's Museum isn't real, because he's a meat eater and we're meat
My teachers at school
Friends at school
Going to Jacob's Farm
Swimming lessons
Star Wars movies (at the Children's Museum) and songs

Harmony's list (she's 3):
Mom, Dad, Henry, Me
Big slide at the park by grandma's
Going to Grandpa and grandma's Farm
Going to Mammaw and pappaw's House
That I was a baby
All the girls at preschool (but not the boys)
My babies
My pink fuzzy jammies
Going to the children's museum
That I can ride my trike now
story time
My princess castle cake
Emma, Ruthie and Olivia
Going to the apple orchard
computer games

Thanks, Laurel for hosting Thankful Thursday for the next four weeks!

Happy Thanksgiving!

A great list! I think it is a good tradition to have the children name their thankfuls at Thanksgiving. I'm sorry you were ill and unable to get together with family. Thanks for stopping by.
