Happy Thanksgiving and a list of gratitude

Thanks giving 2013.jpg

Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you all have a wonderful day with family and friends. I hope it is a day filled with gratitude and joy and perhaps a little rest. I hope it is a reprieve from your busy and hectic day to day.

Earlier this week my family sat down and made a list of what we were most thankful for. I thought it would be sweet to write that list on our "turkey."

The turkey is made from Issie's little foot print and Ry's little hand prints. Every family in America has one of these sweet hand print pictures. 

We decided to write the we were most thankful for on the picture, so that we would always remember the things we cherished when our babies were 2 and 6-months-old. 

So I thought I would break down what each of us said we were thankful for in NO particular order.

Of course Issie can't talk or write so I made his list for him.
