We Are Thankful

Early on in the month of November, we had a family home evening lesson on being thankful.  (November-Thanksgiving-we should be thankful....Not a huge surprise that should be the topic, right?)  We talked a little about the story of Jesus healing the 10 lepers, and only 1 actually taking the time to go back and say, "Thank you."  Our activity for the evening was to think about all the things we are thankful for, and write them on the leaves I had cut out earlier in the day, and stick them to the front door where we would see them everyday, hopefully reminding us to be thankful for all of our blessings.
We are thankful for clothes, family, love, numbers (this was one of Elizabeth's), fall leaves, blankets (one of Maddie's), parents, the car, books, music, and Ryan's job.  And several others things that I am not remembering right now. :)
